“John Stott remains a compelling and urgent voice in today's discussions about human sexuality”
Sam Allberry
Speaker, Ravi Zacharias International Ministries; Author, "Is God Anti-Gay?"
Also available

What does the Bible say about same-sex relationships? How should Christians think about this divisive and heartfelt issue? And what of those who are caught in the crossfire: the brothers and sisters who experience same-sex attraction, but are committed to being faithful to the teaching of scripture and resisting it?

In this revised, updated and extended edition of the classic chapter from Issues Facing Christians Today, the late John Stott lays out the biblical position on same-sex relationships with care, wisdom and compassion.

In addition to Dr Stott's timeless Biblical wisdom, there are forewords by Dr John Sentamu, (the Archbishop of York) and Dr Mark Labberton (President of Fuller Theological Seminary), a helpful preface by the editor, Sean Doherty, testimonies from same-sex attracted Christians and questions for reflection and discussion.

John Stott remains a compelling and urgent voice in today's discussions about human sexuality, and so it is wonderful to have his work refreshed and available to the church in this format, alongside stories that underline how God's timeless word continues to bring goodness and flourishing.

Pastor, author and President of The Proclamation Trust

I found these words deeply compelling when I first read them as a very young Christian, just coming to terms with my sexuality, and they remain so today. There is no better short presentation of the Bible’s teaching marked, as always with John Stott’s writing, by faithfulness, clarity and compassion.

Archbishop Foley Beach

Anglican Church in North America

This re-release of John Stott's work on same-sex relationships is timely, thoughtful, compassionate, and Biblically compelling. He asks the right questions and walks the reader through a theological and pastoral treatise enabling every follower of Jesus to grasp the difficulties so many of our friends encounter

Independent reviews

Wallace Benn, Church Society, October 26th 2018

I am delighted to see this gem of biblical reasoning from John Stott being reissued again. It might have been possible, with the passing of time and the addition of new material written by people like Martin Davie, Kevin DeYoung, Jonathan Berry & Rob Wood, Ed Shaw, Sean Doherty, and others, for this wonderful little book to have been forgotten.... continue reading

Very informative and interesting!


“What a great book from John Stott”

(Review written for 'Same Sex Relationships')

The contains is refreshing. Give me a new horizon to face a LGBT movement in my church. However the physical of the book is not carefully made. Pages have fallen after a couple days.


“very good”

(Review written for 'Same Sex Relationships')

Very thoughtful, from the heart. In the style it is written, it is good to use for highly educated people as well as anyone. And has a great approach to the problem, showing both sides of the debate and never leaves doubt that we talk about really people. I especially appreciated that he is not over estimating the issue, but looks at it realistically.
A good resource as a base on how to approach people with same-sex attraction in our churches today.
Thanking for the editing and feeding it with new data.



(Review written for 'Same Sex Relationships')

Well written originally, with an excellent update. Clear theology and analysis of the issues. Empathetic and compassionate.
