The gay debate is one of the most controversial issues facing the church today, as support is increasing for committed same-sex partnerships to be given the same moral and legal weight as heterosexual marriage. At the other end of the spectrum are those who still react to gay people with revulsion and prejudice. In response to these two polarised attitudes, John Stott has revised Chapter Sixteen, on homosexuality, from his seminal work Issues Facing Christians Today to produce this sensitive and well-timed book. Dr. Stott examines the five main arguments in favour of same sex partnerships and responds to them in turn from a clear biblical viewpoint. With his usual lucidity he challenges both unthinking prejudice and a careless attitude toward Scripture, but also calls for greater faith, hope and love in relation to homosexual people, as well as a clearer grasp of biblical principles.
The late Rev Dr. John Stott is known worldwide as a Bible teacher, writer, pastor and mission-leader. During a ministry that extended to seven decades, he authored many books including the best-selling Basic Christianity, Why I Am a Christian and The Cross of Christ ; he was also the editor, (and author of several volumes) of the Bible Speaks Today. In more recent years he was Rector Emeritus of All Souls Church, Langham Place, London; President of the London Institute for Contemporary Christianity; and Founder-President of the Langham Partnership International. He was awarded the CBE in the Queens 2006 New Year Honours. Stott was honored by Time magazine in 2005 as one of the "100 Most Influential People in the World."
