    Well, if the blurb had made it clear this would be a number articles by liberal Presbyterians, I wouldn't have been quite so surprised to read articles that endorsed the acceptance gays, not only in the church, but in positions of authority and office. I realize we are called to show God's love to all His creatures, but showing love and endorsing sinful lifestyles are two different matters. Most of all of this is couched in terms of reaching out, showing community, loving as Christ loved. From my reading Jesus would have certainly loved a sinner, even healed a sinner, but then would have said, "Now go, and stop sinning." How these authors can, after Paul says that we are to avoid all appearance of sin, proceed to endorse the acceptance of those with these lifestyles not just into the church (I have no problem with gays attending a church. I pray for it) but into leadership positions is beyond me. But this is what we get with the scourge of relativism in todays churches plus the devaluing of the very words of scripture. The authors offer no refutation of appropriate biblical passages concerning homosexuality (Romans, etc) We are just supposed to believe we have a newer, fresher, fuller understanding of what God intends. Subjectivism at it's best, doctrines of demons at it's worse. The also delve into ordination of women into highest offices in the church. I realize there is much debate on this, and most have their own opinions, but I do not see that issue as perilous as the one mentioned above. This authors, almost to a man or woman, say we should not discriminate in the body of Christ according to race, gender, disability, sexual orientation. Excuse me, but none of us can chose what race, gender, or whether or not we have disabilities. Those are determined by birth. Sexual orientation is a choice. There is not scientific or medical discovery that indicates anything to the contrary. This is the kind of reasoning, couched underneath noble sounding words about God's love and reaching todays world, that will be discovered in this book. I would not recommend it to anyone. Period. Truly a wolves' book in sheep's clothing.
