1 Stars Out Of 5
Unfortunately, I have to oppose this text.
April 29, 2013
In spite of the amazing scholarship, in spite of the keen exegetical insights, in spite of the wonderful appendixes, the fact that the author claims that Paul's comments in Romans 1 do not speak about homosexuality, and that Paul's words are not relevant for a 'loving, committed, same gender relationship' totally destroys the commentary. I have no problem overlooking doctrinal differences with other brothers in the Lord, but if I entertain these ideas I myself may be sucked into this deception. Should I accept that homosexuality is an acceptable practice, and stand before the Lord on Judgment Day and tell him that I read so in a commentary? God forbid. For the sake of my soul and the souls of others I have to say do not support this commentary until the author repents. This is not an academic issue it is a spiritual one.
