Publisher's Description

Christians, the church and the Bible seem to be out of step with modern attitudes towards homosexuality and there is growing hostility towards those who hold a different view to the culture's.

So is God homophobic? And how do we relate to both Christians and non-Christians who experience same-sex attraction?

In this short, simple book, Sam Allberry wants to help Christians understand what God has said about these questions in the scriptures. Drawing on his own experience, he offers a positive and liberating way forward through the debate.

Editorial Reviews

Is God Anti-Gay is filled with biblical teaching and pastoral wisdom. Sam writes as a same-sex attracted Christian who does not experience his life as impoverished or sub-human. I am delighted to recommend this book. -- Timothy Keller (Author and Chairman of Redeemer City to City)

Sam is a same-sex attracted Christian, and a faithful brother. I cannot overstate how grateful I am for his life and testimony. The Lord has raised him up for our time. If you haven’t yet read Sam’s book, you need to. -- Denny Burk (Professor of Biblical Studies at Boyce College, Louisville, KY)

Sam’s story is one of God’s goodness in the midst of same sex attraction, and is a powerful testimony for those needing encouragement in the face of this temptation. -- Doug Wilson (author and pastor of Christ Church, Moscow, Idaho)

Simply the clearest, kindest and most helpful book I have ever read on this topic. Buy it. Give it away. Make sure you get as many people as possible to read it. Get it on your must read list. Today. -- Mez McConnell

In this brief but important book, Sam Allberry combines pastoral wisdom, authentic autobiography, and sound exegesis to provide Christians with a helpful introduction to the topic of homosexuality. -- Nate Collins

Sam's testimony is that biblical faith is a source of great comfort and joy. What comes across is a pastor’s heart for people. Sam offers practical pointers for Christians who are struggling with the issue. There is also some helpful guidance for churches that, perhaps more frequently than ever before, are being called upon to support such believers in their life journeys. All this wisdom is set squarely in the context of a succinct exposition of the relevant Bible texts. -- Philemon Tracker

It’s not shaped by politics, sensationalism, or right-wing ideologies. It’s not seeking to ride the trends of culture or church opinion. This book is an attempt to seek the mind of God honestly and sensitively from the Bible. -- Dave McDonald

Sam is well qualified to write this book because he is a great writer, a thoughtful and experienced pastor and a gifted teacher of the Bible. Sam himself experiences same-sex attraction; and so this book is written from the inside of the issue. This is vital, since Sam is not simply feeding a Christian plot against gay people. -- Michael Jensen

In the space of five short chapters, Allberry covers an amazing amount of territory. I was pleasantly surprised to see that many books, which take pages to cover similar material, were handled here with biblical clarity and practical winsomeness. There is no pontificating here, but a man who has been changed by the gospel of Christ seeking to help us think biblically about this issue. -- Jonathan Holmes

These are books written by men who are not experiencing their lives as impoverished or sub-human. Their commitment to chastity within the lives God has given them is one of finding fulfillment and identity in their relationship to Christ.As you can tell, I’m quite glad to recommend both these books. -- Tim Keller

Allberry differentiates between “same-sex attracted” and “gay,” exegetes Scripture briefly but well, and shows how churches can help those who are struggling. -- Marvin Olasky

The gospel is good news, for homosexuals too. The gospel doesn't define us by our temptations but by the righteousness of Christ. This book sets forth the biblical case. The author captures perfectly the gospel's call to repentance and offer of mercy. Read this book and consider how God is calling you to love, in word and in deed, all of those around you. -- Russell D. Moore (President, Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, Southern Baptist Convention, Author, Tempted and Tried: Temptation and the Triumph of Christ)

Empathetic & wise, learned and clear, hopeful and kind - this book by Sam Allberry is on a topic that can be very challenging.  It would be helpful for just about anyone to read. -- Mark Dever (Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church)

EXCELLENT. Short, clear, kind, understanding... this needs to be widely distributed. -- Jonathan Leeman (Editorial Director at 9Marks, blogger and author)

This short book is outstanding. Sam Allberry handles people carefully, texts wisely and issues sensitively, and the result is a supremely helpful book on perhaps the most challenging issue western Christians face today. I highly recommend it. -- Andrew Wilson (pastor and blogger at thinktheology.co.uk)

Sam writes with genuine pastoral warmth out of his own personal experience. He argues convincingly that, far from being anti-gay, God loves those who experience same-sex attraction and that the gospel is good news for us too. -- Jonathan Berry (Director, True Freedom Trust)

Every minister should read this book and we should endeavour to get it into the hands of as many of our congregation as possible. -- Paul Levy (Reformation 21 blog)

A truly marvellous book.  Sam writes as a pastor who himself struggles with same-sex attraction. Sam's humanity shines through every page; his understanding of weakness undergirds the whole. A compassionate and compelling resource for pastors and elders to keep on hand, as this is an issue which will become more, not less, important. -- Carl R. Trueman (Dept. Chair of Church History at Westminster Theological Seminary, Author, Pastor and Ref21 blogger)

This is becoming the issue of our day. Short books like this that are biblical, grounded in the writer's personal experience and pastoral concern are a gift to all the church family, those struggling and those looking in. Sam Allberry meets objections and misunderstandings graciously, truthfully and persuasively. -- Rico Tice (Author and Evangelist)
