Product Description

The battle over homosexuality often degenerates into slogans and accusations, losing sight of individual struggles, pain, and faces. Writing with profound empathy and an evangelical Christian perspective, Schmidt addresses the debate's main points: what the Bible says about homosexuality, how homosexual behavior affects one's health, and whether gay orientation is genetically predetermined. 240 pages, softcover from InterVarsity.

Publisher's Description

Voted one of Christianity Today's 1996 Books of the Year! Too often, Thomas Schmidt writes, the charged battle over homosexuality generates slogans and accusations--obscuring the struggling persons at the center of the argument. In this book Schmidt brings the discussion back into empathetic contact with the circumstances and the choices of individuals. At the same time he offers thoroughly researched and up-to-date information and assessment from an evangelical Christian perspective on all the main points of the debate. He includes chapters on what the Bible really says (and means) about homosexuality, the health effects of homosexual behavior, whether or not people are born with homosexual orientations, and the cogency of recent progay reconstructions of history such as John Boswell's.

Author Bio

Thomas E. Schmidt (Ph.D., Cambridge University) teaches at Rogue Community College in Grants Pass, Oregon. He is former Professor of New Testament at Westmont College. He has written several books and numerous professional journal articles.

    This book claims to be based on empathy. Instead it supports the claim that a person "chooses" to be gay. It is important to point out that those who have spoken most loudly against homosexuality have been outed in many cases. I wonder why that discussion wasn't included in this book. --0 score
