About the Book

The dating scene is baptism by fire for seminarians on the spiritual path to becoming clergy. Seminarians are allowed to date and marry—something that many find bewildering and sometimes hellish while attempting to answer “the call” to ministry while navigating today’s dating scene to find true love. Sex in the Seminary is based on author Ameila Strang’s own experience as a single seminarian. During her years of theological study, she made friends with students who refrained from dating while attending school. Ameila did not exercise such self-discipline. She and others like her rebuked the ideology that women were not allowed to be sexual goddesses who wore red lipstick and matching high heels while preaching in the pulpit on Sunday. In the pages of this book, find a zany collection of kind-of-sort-of true dating stories “inspired” by real-life seminarians, shared in the form of diary entries. The purpose of this book is not to alter the interpretation of biblical scripture in any way. Ameila merely seeks to provide insight into seminarians trying to find love in a space where physical and spiritual worlds oftentimes collide.
