This is a guest post by Chris Roberts, the author of Creation and Covenant:
Creation and Covenant is, in part, a survey of the history of the theology of marriage, from the patristic era to the present. I began the project because I was agnostic and confused about traditional sexual ethics, but, by the end of the project, I found myself persuaded by the traditional arguments.
For me, the story begins in the late 1990's, when I was a journalist for PBS television. I got my start as Bill Moyers' research assistant, and eventually became a correspondent for the program Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly. I covered gay marriage debates for that program, including the Lambeth Conference in 1998 and the World Council of Churches meeting in Zimbabwe that same year.
