A vital contribution to a conversation that won't go away.
Today, few topics arouse as much passion, conflict and confusion as homosexuality. For some, any rational discussion on such an emotive, personal topic feels impossible. For others, it seems there is simply nothing left to talk about - the ship has sailed, attitudes have changed, and people need to get on board or keep quiet. Many Bible-believing Christians feel torn, uncertain about whether to abandon or revise the Bible's teaching, or perhaps just quietly withdraw from the conversation altogether.
In this short and down-to-earth book, Steve Morrison provides a way through the confusion, combining keen personal insight with years of experience in pastoring teenagers and young adults. Born This Way dares to tackle some of society's taboo questions: What does modern science really say about homosexuality? Do science and the Bible actually disagree? What does God say to the homosexual, and to the homophobe? Is genuine discussion possible, and how can people on all sides of this issue relate to one another with tolerance and grace?
While the conclusions may surprise or unsettle you, Born This Way offers clarity and compassion on the key issues around same-sex attraction.
