The Complete Christian Guide to Understanding Homosexuality
A Biblical and Compassionate Response to Same-Sex Attraction
One of the hot–button issues of our day is fully addressed in this comprehensive new resource on homosexuality. This well–researched and highly readable guide is the perfect go–to manual for families, church workers, counselors, pastors, civic leaders, schools, and those who themselves struggle with same–sex attraction.
Readers will find the answers to these and many more important questions:
- What is homosexuality?
- Is the tendency for homosexuality genetic?
- How should the church respond?
- What’s the proper response when a relative or friend announces they’re gay?
- What are the legal and civic ramifications of homosexuality?
- Should homosexuals serve openly in the military?
- What about gay marriage and adoption?
Authoritative authors Joe Dallas (Desires in Conflict, When Homosexuality Hits Home) and Dr. Nancy Heche (The Truth Comes Out) tackle the hard questions about same–sex attraction in this helpful volume.
“I recommend it for anyone who has a friend or relative living the lifestyle, and/or struggling with same-sex attractions, and for people in the church who just want to know more about this hot topic.”
“This book seems to have the right balance and care for such a sensitive topic...Church leaders and pastors cannot afford to be without a resource like this. I recommend this book highly.”
“I have been working in the homosexual community for the past twenty years. The Complete Christian Guide to Understanding Homosexuality is an outstanding resource for the local church. It is a well-written and documented book for those who want to understand homosexuality as well as reach out with compassion to those who have same sex attraction. I will use this book often.”
—Dr. Jeff Winter, pastor, FaithMV Church of Martha's Vineyard
“Joe Dallas has provided an incredible resource for the Body of Christ and for the culture at large by producing The Complete Christian Guide to Understanding Homosexuality. He brings together a thoroughly biblical understanding with a pastor’s heart. The accuracy and thoroughness of the work is significant, but Joe’s compassion for those who are struggling with same sex attraction is a powerful witness to the truth and grace of Christ.”
