mom55 Stars Out Of 5Great resourceNovember 5, 2015mom5Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5My 15 yo daughter used this for a research paper. I have only read half the book at this time. It is very thorough, bible-based and loving in its presentation. I believe it is a wonderful resource for my child, so she can hear the Bible perspective in today's confusing world. I also like that its presentation is done without leading to harsh judgement of others, but from a matter of fact perspective. I feel the author speaks biblical truth. The consequences of sin are described. I feel that this book arms my daughter for her future endeavors and challenges.
GHuttonKIC5 Stars Out Of 5A well-written treatment of the subjectOctober 30, 2015GHuttonKICQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Really appreciated the depth and scope of Pr. DeYoung's book. It is well-researched and exegetically sound. He carefully handles the questions that are thrown out by opponents to traditional marriage in the main chapters of his book. The appendices, "What About Same-Sex Marriage?", "Same-Sex Attraction: Three Building Blocks" and "The Church and Homosexuality: Ten Commitments" are very helpful. The ramifications of redefining marriage through the SCOTUS decision are clearly and soberly dealt with through the first appendix. DeYoung gives the church sound advice in the last appendix. I strongly recommend this to give you a quick, but solid, look into one of the issue that is rocking our culture.

bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: Over 65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Defense of the traditional (historical) view of marriage and homosexualityApril 6, 2015bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: Over 65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5DeYoung early on identifies his book as a Christian book, with a narrow focus, defending the traditional view of marriage.
The first task we must do, he says, is to determine what the Bible says about homosexuality. Once we have determined that, many questions will be easy to answer. This book is not a 500 page tome (although he says those are needed). This is a book for lay leaders, college students, parents, high school teachers, etc.
The first part of the book is a collection of five chapters, each on one of the most relevant and debated texts on the subject. The second part of the book focuses on the most common objections to the traditional view of sexual morality. He concludes with a chapter on what is at stake in this matter.
DeYoung includes an Appendix on the political aspect of the discussion and the impact on the definition and concept of marriage. A second Appendix deals with meanings of terms and their use. A third Appendix gives suggestions on how Christians should speak about homosexuality. At the end is an Annotated Bibliography.
DeYoung writes, ...that homosexual practice is a serious sin and a violation of God's created order. And, The biblical teaching is consistent and unambiguous: homosexual activity is not God's will for his people.
I highly recommend this book for those looking for a concise yet well written investigation into and defense of the traditional (historical) views of marriage and homosexual behavior. He takes to task those who would revise what the Bible says. He answers those who use ancient nonbiblical writings, something I was very happy to read. DeYoung has written this book knowing how volatile this subject is. I really feel he has spoken the truth, yet with love.
I received a complimentary egalley of this book from the publisher for the purpose of an independent and honest review.
