As the conversation around homosexuality becomes increasingly hostile on all sides, it can be difficult to know where to stand as a Christian. You don’t want to compromise God’s Word, either by blindly following the culture or by treating others with hatred and contempt. How do you hold onto your convictions without projecting an image of Christ that is self-righteous and judgmental? R. Nicholas Black addresses both sides of this equation. Challenging easy assumptions about gays and lesbians, he encourages you to build the foundation of your conversation on God’s love for people created in his image. He also examines some of the most disputed passages regarding homosexuality and draws out the fuller story of God’s design for sexuality.
