E 118 Naturism and Christianity: Are They Compatible? (2000)

Naturism is often misunderstood by non-naturists, being treated either as rather amusing or as a dangerous opportunity for sexual license. But this engaging study demonstrates that naturism involves a kind of idealism with which many Christians would sympathise.

The booklet begins with a look at the origins of naturism, considers the meaning of nakedness and its place in the Bible and Christian tradition, and reflects on the actual experience of naturists and how Christians might respond.
