As readers of the Old Testament encounter these weird, confusing, and horrific "love" stories, they ask, "What's up with sex in the Old Testament?" The Church often ignores the R-rated bits of the Bible, so it's hard for people to find answers to their disturbing questions about sex in scripture, which can lead people to give up on God and God's word.
However, these stories were included in the Bible for a reason: to reveal an even more shocking "love" story. When humans behave badly, God behaves graciously. God not only forgives people with sexual baggage but also redeems their lives and includes them in his mission. God's word records their story to benefit us. Just as sex was not often ideal in the Old Testament, it's often not ideal today. Instead of ignoring these stories, Prostitutes and Polygamists engages, discusses, and learns from them.

Who isn't a sodomist? Well done David Lamb!
Polygamists and Prostitutes by David T Lamb is now my favourite Christian Book of Theology. Not for the faint of heart, solid, we'll written and defended; this book gives a forthright and witty description of the truth of the Bible. For example, King David was a racist, Abraham was a pimp, God lover the Sodomites; Homosexuality is not discussed in the old Testament; Polygamy is not ideal but not necessarily a sin etc. As I said, it's not for your typical, faint of heart, milk diet Christian. This is solid food business. I dare you to try it.
