The Gay Gospel? How Pro-Gay Advocates Misread the Bible
January 3, 2015
As someone who has worked with many brothers and sisters in Christ with unwanted SSA -- and have seen many many freed from that stronghold -- I consider this book a must read for anyone who desires to help a brother or sister out of SSA, as well as the struggler themselves. For that matter, it is a must read for the entire church as we hear of more and more churches compromising Truth on this issue in hopes of avoiding confrontation.
I have a brother-in-law who is gay, and a sister who is gay. I was raised in the Christian tradition, and have openly and earnestly sought to understand the morality of homosexuality as both a believer and an academic. This book disappoints from an academic/scholarly perspective. While I wish I could find a credible source to uphold the immorality of homosexuality, this book fails to prove its premise based on high standards of academic scrutiny. I am a professional academic researcher and theological historian who is disappointed here to say the least.
This book is everything I was looking for! I am a Christian woman who has both a sister and a brother who are gay and who attend churches that accept homosexual behavior as normal and non-sinful. I had heard all the pro-gay arguments, some of which twist the Scripture in incredible ways, but I did not always have good answers to back up my opposing point of view. This book not only clarified everything for me, but inspired me and encouraged me that there is a way Christians can be loving and compassionate toward gays without having to compromise the truth. Many thanks to the author for using his comprehensive knowledge of the Bible combined with the insight that comes only from experience in order to produce a wonderful book. This book would be of great help to anyone struggling with these issues and should be read by every Christian, especially those in positions of leadership in the church.
As a parent of a son who has claimed and walked as a believer from 13 til now 27 involoved with Precept ministries and indepth bible study whom I have just found out has been struggling with Homosexual desires for years. I needed to know what he was being told by these friends (he meet in a bible teaching church) pastors (who have counseled him)in that he was born that way. This book gives why they believe the bible is not against homosexual relationships, what they believe and how they reword or misread the bible. VERY INSIGHTFUL!! Must read to help other's or yourself.
Well written and thoroughly documented, this book shows the Christian how the move to make gay Christianity permissible. However the Bible declares otherrwise. Written with much forethought and first hand experience, Joe Dallas makes a good case against the gay gospel
