Publisher's Summary

It's the hot topic of the moment. Christians, the church, and the Bible seem to be out of step with modern attitudes towards homosexuality. And there is growing hostility towards those who hold a different view. So is God homophobic? And what do we say, and how do we relate to to both Christians and non-Christians who experience same-sex attraction. In this short, simple book, Sam Allberry wants to help confused Christians understand what God has said about these questions in the scriptures, and offers a positive and liberating way forward through the debate.

Excellent and to the Point

It's a short read but full of Biblical truth. As the lines of morality become increasingly gray it is nice to hear some simple truth in an area that is shrouded in a lot of confusion and pain. Sam does a great job of sticking to the facts. I would have liked some more personal stories or experiences in the book since most of the information I have heard before. But for a person who doesn't know what the Bible says about homosexuality this is an excellent and simple read or in my case - listen. I love a good audio book. It allows me to get so much more information crammed in my brain while driving or doing chores.

Very honest and thought provoking

I would recommend this book to any Christian families dealing with homosexuality and same sex attraction. We have read a lot of books and listened to many podcasts on this subject. It is especially good to hear a godly perspective of someone who struggles with this issue yet desires and pursues God's plan for his life.

A lot of information in a compact book.

I listened to this book via Audible. The author had some very simple yet profound points on Homosexuality and the engagement of as a community. He focuses how this is a sin and not the "great sin". He offers encouragement for those struggling, as he is, and how the church should welcome the gay struggler with a focus on the Gospel and not the person's sexuality.

The presentation of the Gospel

This book is for anyone who holds tightly to the Gospel, who seeks to share the Gospel, and anyone who needs the Gospel.
Thank you.

Precisely and concisely what Christendom needs to hear today

Sam Allberry is the lightning bolt the church needs today to wake up to the reality of how ineffective we have been at connecting the LGBTQ+ community with the Gospel. Our perspectives, attitudes and communication all need to be altered so we are aligned with how Jesus views all of humanity. Not one of us is better or worse than anyone else. We all desperately need a Savior and are called to love our neighbor. Sam communicates this beautifully in the context of human sexuality and identity, with honesty and transparency. Not an easy or popular message to present, but you do it well, Sam.

Beautifully written

Such a great insight. It teaches us how to address a tough topic for us Christians. I'm so glad that I purchased this because it helps me navigate conversations with some very hurtful Christians about why I share God's love with others first despite sins.

Turned me upside down!

I read this because of the ever increasing need I feel to learn to better love others...what I found was insightful, challenging, encouraging and down right truth...the painful reality is I struggle with idolatry to my wife and the log in my own eye has caused me to completely alleviate my ability grow in right relationship to Jesus! Thank you for this amazing book!

Such a helpful resource

Sam Allberry's experience and studied response to this topic is incredibly helpful for Christian's desiring to stand on the biblical truth about sexuality and respond with humility and sensitivity about it. This is a well thought out and loving treatise on the subject.
