Description

Is it ok to be gay and Christian? Does the Bible really say that homosexuality is wrong? Is sexual orientation fundamental to identity?

Author and speaker Sam Allberry has expanded and restructured his best-selling book, which draws on his own experience as a believer who experiences same-sex attraction. As well as exploring Bible passages that talk directly about homosexuality, this new edition frames the whole discussion with Jesus’ general teaching on sex and marriage, as well as what Jesus teaches about finding ultimate satisfaction and happiness. It also challenges the current culture narrative, which inextricably ties sexuality to personal identity, and he shows that the gospel is good news for everyone, whatever their sexual orientation.

This sensitive exploration of the Bible’s teaching on sexuality has been written to help both Christians and non-Christians struggling with the Bible's teaching on this issue, whether they experience same-sex attraction themselves or not.

Includes answers to questions such as…

• Does Jesus ever mention same-sex relationships?
• Aren’t people just born this way?
• What should I do if a Christian comes out to me?
• Surely, isn't a same-sex partnership ok if it’s committed and faithful?
• Is it sinful to experience same-sex attraction?
• Isn’t the Christian view of sexuality harmful?
• Aren’t we just picking and choosing which Old Testament laws apply?
• Can’t Christians just agree to differ on this?
• Should Christians attend gay weddings?

Pastor; Author, New Morning Mercies

Here is wisdom shaped by personal experience, but also shaped by things that are even more important: love of God, love for people, and a rich, street-level understanding of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I can think of no other book that speaks so lovingly, clearly, practically, and helpfully to this significant issue of our day.

This is a plain, sensible, biblical and therefore necessary little book on sexuality that anybody can understand and one everybody can benefit from. Sexuality can be a messy subject and as Sam Alberry always does, he makes the messy stuff make a whole lotta sense.

Rebecca McLaughlin

Author, Confronting Christianity

What I love about this book is also what I love about my brother, Sam Allberry: Jesus is its central theme. Christian sexual ethics makes no sense without Jesus at its heart. But as Sam helps us see, with Jesus's love for us as the animating center, all other kinds of love click into place. Don't read this book if you don't want to know how much the Son of God loves you, and how much more his love is worth than any other merely human love.
