Downloadable Audiobook - 2014 | Unabridged.
Rate this:
What the Bible actually says--and doesn't say--about same-sex relationshipsis very good news. More than any other issue of our times, the church's response to same-sex relationships has alienated Christians and caused painful divisions in families and communities. For conservative believers, that response is grounded in a traditional interpretation of the Bible that seems to permanently exclude the notion of gay Christians in a committed relationship. But what if there is another way--one that honors those who are different and the authority of Scripture? In God and the Gay Christian, Matthew Vines tells how, as a theologically conservative gay Christian, he embarked on an intensive study of the Bible to discover whether same-sex relationships can be blessed by God. His groundbreaking book makes a compelling, hope-filled case for a better understanding of Sodom and Gomorrah, the teachings of Jesus and Paul, and the biblical view of marriage. Remarkable in its affirmation of both orthodox theology and equality for sexual minorities, God and the Gay Christian has the potential to radically change the conversation about being gay in the church.
