Product Description

Some Christians have had it with homosexuality in the church, particularly among leadership in the African-American church. In his new book Straight Up, author Michael Stevens takes a no-nonsense, hard-hitting approach to exposing the double lifestyle and its ramifications. He then offers redeeming hope to those who want out.

Tired of the homosexual agenda trying to "soothe our conscience and level of tolerance," Stevens fires back with a hard-hitting, in-depth look at the emotional, spiritual, and psychological damage this "nurtured" disease is having on the very core of the black family---the male seed. He adamantly pushes forward on this controversial subject because "we must deal with a disease that is invisible with no symptoms of potential threat or current characteristics of existence."

Stevens also points out that "for every deception and myth, there is hope and healing." He offers a four-step process that begins with acceptance, followed by repentance, avoidance, and confidence. The detailed plan, he is sure, will help men walk out of the double lifestyle into a new life full of straight living.

Michael A. Stevens Sr. is the senior pastor of University City Church in Charlotte, North Carolina, which he founded in 1994. He is also a superintendent in the Church of God in Christ and the founder of Covenant Churches and Ministries International. He received his bachelor of science degree in political studies from North Carolina A & T State University in 1992. He is currently pursuing his master of divinity degree from Oral Roberts University, and was recently named one of "30 Emerging Voices Under the Age of 40" by Charisma Magazine. Pastor Stevens is married with three children.
