Product Description

In light of and despite the divisive issue that homosexuality has become in both culture and the church, Loving My (LGBT) Neighbor is conceived and thoughtfully written for the Christian layperson or clergy who want to learn how to receive and interact with their gay or lesbian neighbors in a substantively Christ-honoring way. It is for the individual who is trying to find a balance between extremes, a middle ground between wholesale, uncritical acceptance or bigoted, hateful exclusion. It focuses squarely on providing carefully developed scripturally-based wisdom from real-life situations.

Publisher's Description

Ever feel like we’re just fumbling through the LGBT conversation, always asking but never really finding answers to questions like:

  • What does it look like to be friends with my lesbian neighbors? 
  • How should I love my gay child and his partner?
  • What if I’m invited to a same-sex wedding?     
  • What did Jesus sayand not sayabout homosexuality?
  • What is the role of the church in the same-sex debate?

We don’t have to fumble. While the questions are hard, answers can be had. Just ask Glenn Stanton.

Stanton, of Focus on the Family, travels widely meeting with and debating LGBT advocates across the country. In doing so he has had the privilege of becoming friends with a number of them. 

He says, "We disagree on certain convictions, but we still admire and esteem one another . . . Since when was it decided that people who see the world in polar opposite ways can't be friends?" He shares his personal journey building bridges with the LGBT community and offers candid insights on hard questions.

In Loving My (LGBT) Neighbor, Glenn Stanton shows us how to speak the truth in love on this difficult but important issue.

Editorial Reviews

"What an incredibly timely topic. It is nice to see a book that helps Christians approach members of the LGBT community with sensitivity and caring without compromising their morals and beliefs."

Reviewed by Martha Dodge, Sept 28, 2014


"A timely book that helps the modern day Christian walk through the correct and biblical stance and approach to those in our lives and neighborhood from the LGBT community. A much needed book as many walk this minefield in a state of confusion. What does the bible say on this subject? So many questions that many have can be answered by this well written book."
