Of the books I have read on the topic of homosexuality and the Christian faith this is one of the best. I wished I had read it earlier in my "coming out". It would be a great book to recommend to people who are asking how one can be gay and Christian. It is logical, scientific and easy to read. It doesn't sound biased or as if it started with a set agenda. Though it is an older book, it is just as current today as when it was written.

This is the best (evangelical?) Christian apologetic for positive full inclusion of gays and lesbians into the church that I've read. Originally published in the late 1980s--there's a revised second edition from the 1990s. It takes Scripture seriously while thoroughly examining the human experience, social concerns and scientific research at hand. It is also very compassionate towards the many different voices in the debate.

This book is a must read for anyone who has grown up gay and struggling to come to terms with it all and make sense of balancing a relationship with the church in any way, shape or form. I loved the way this book is written with no-nonsense ways to understand the fine balance gays/Christians have with one another, and unfortunately many times too often clash head on.

This was the first book I ever read that told me I was okay as I was. When I saw the words "lesbian Christian" together, I cried, realizing that I didn't have to be excluded forever. A little dated, but definitely worth the read.

Well-written, with careful and thorough research. Society has come a long way since this was published in 1978, and still has a long way to go. It was interesting to read in retrospect the arguments I lived through and experienced at the time.

A historic first! A must read. This book was written at a time when literally no one would discuss the various ways sexuality and spirituality intersect, let alone dare speak loudly and proud the word homosexual.

Recommends it for: Every Christian person, or simply someone wondering what the bible REALLY says about homosexuality.
For the love of people, everyone needs to read this book. The way they look at homosexuality and the biblical evidence they used to support it will open the eyes of every person, Christian or not and regardless of how they feel about homosexuals. Everyone needs to read this book.

The authors contribute an essential voice in the debate about homosexuality in Christianity. Agree or disagree, this is an exegetical contribution that must be taken into account on this issue.
