God and the Gay Christian : The Biblical Case in Support of Same-Sex Relationships

God and the Gay Christian : The Biblical Case in Support of Same-Sex Relationships

Description

A compelling reinterpretation of key Bible texts related to sexual orientation that has win raves and rants both inside and outside the church.

Millions of conservative Christians want to live in solidarity with the LGBT community but feel stymied by traditional understandings of a mere handful of biblical texts. Now comes Matthew Vines, a Harvard student who spent years on a personal quest to unearth scholarly work long acknowledged by liberal theologians, but almost entirely lost to conservatives. His book stands nearly alone in that it affirms the key tenets of a gospel-centred, orthodox hermenuetic while presenting a clear and compelling case for embracing sexual diversity. His audience is a new generation of Evangelicals--both gay and straight--who feel caught in and repulsed by an often mean-spirited debate. They long for a charitable yet biblically sound message on this topic that is not at odds with the Jesus of the gospels. The Bible and the Gay Christian delivers the manifesto they're looking for. And the author's goal is not merely to change the conversation but to create change in churches worldwide.
