It's the hot topic of the moment. 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. So is God homophobic? And what do we say, and how do we relate to to both Christians and non-Christians who experience same-sex attraction. In this short, simple book, Sam Allberry wants to help confused Christians understand what God has said about these questions in the scriptures, and offers a positive and liberating way forward through the debate.

Poor Bibilical Interpetation
Those that still believe homosexuality is a "sin" rather than a "sexual orientation". If your believe the Bible was written directly to 21st century, you may like this book. The author uses poor scholarship.
No, because allows his biases, homosexuality is a sin, saying the Bible aggress with him. He does not allow the Bible to speak for it self. Good scholarship starts with good "textual criticism" allowing the Bible to reflect the culture of 2000 years ago.
He read well.
Sam Allberry message to conservative Christians is to love the sinner/ homosexual because God loves all sinners. Yet, he prof text the scriptures to prove his point. Example: Story of Sodom and Gomorra has nothing to say about homosexuality but clearly has references to male to male "rape". Rape is not a homosexual act and no more than it is a heterosexual act. However, the author argues that it was referring to homosexuality.
