Product Description

Few recent issues have sparked such debate in the churches as homosexuality, same-sex unions, and ordination of gays and lesbians. A key point of contention is the meaning and authority of the biblical witness.

In this brief book, two New Testament scholars discuss the relevant biblical texts on the subject of homosexual behavior and orientation. Discussing both old Testament and New Testament texts, each author also raises important interpretive and moral questions and then offers a response to the other's main assertions. Softcover, 117 pages. Fortress Press.

Publisher's Description

Few recent issues have sparked such debate in the churches as homosexuality, same-sex unions, and ordination of gays and lesbians. A key point of contention is the meaning and authority of the biblical witness. In this brief book, two New Testament scholars discuss the relevant biblical texts on the subject of homosexual behavior and orientation. Discussing both Old Testament and New Testament texts, each author also raises important interpretive and moral questions and then offers a response to the other's main assertions. Chief questions examined by each include what the Bible has to say about homosexuality and homosexual behavior, the meaning of those texts in their cultural contexts, and the larger hermeneutical dilemma of what kind of authority the Bible's teaching, if recoverable, has for Christians today. A thoughtful and irenic dialogue, this volume can facilitate reflection and discussion among church members on a vital and contentious issue in American church life.

    Professor Via and Professor Gagnon come together to debate a very "touchy" subject in the church today. Via argues that homosexuality is not entirely immoral. In other words, he argues that some people can be born with a destiny to find love in a homosexual relationship and tries to use scriptural exegesis and other sources to justify his claims. On the other hand, Gagnon argues that homosexuality is absolutely and all inclusively immoral using his knowledge of scripture and historical context of scripture to back up his position. I recommend this product to those seeking to gain a greater understanding of this hot topic of the day and how each side defends their viewpoints.

    Neither of the two authors present solid arguements. They both seem to distort scripture and take things out of context to support their views. I think there are better books out there on this subject.
