Sodomy

Sodomy: A History of a Christian Biblical Myth, by Michael John Carden.

Nope, for once in this journal it's not a how-to book. As the blurb says: "The book is a study of the reception of Genesis 19, Sodom and Gomorrah, together with the parallel story in Judges 19-21, the outrage at Gibeah, in both Christian and Jewish traditions from antiquity through to the Reformation period."

Given the interests of you lot, it seems worth pimping. I must in fairness mention that the author is an old friend of mine from the soc.bi days, but since this is a scholarly work, you probably won't get from it what a wonderfully warm and funny guy he is.
