At the 1999 Convention of the ELCIC held in Regina, delegates instructed the national church to "make available to its congregations Six Studies on Homosexuality
, and a current bibliography of materials prepresenting different perspectives regarding this issue." (NC-99-49)
In response to that motion, a copy of Studies on Homosexuality and the Church by Dr. Erwin Buck was prepared by throroughly revising and updating Six Studies on Homosexuality, which appeared in 1985. A bibliography, a glossary and a study guide for Caring Conversations were added. Every ELCIC congregation received a single copy with the March 2001 Communiqué and additional copies were available from Augsburg Fortress.
As the stock at Augsburg Fortress is now sold out, the full text of this resource is now available to read on-line as web pages and or to download as .pdf files. Interested individuals and organizations may reproduce as many copies as they require for study and reflection. Please include the following copyright notice as part of any reproduced material.
