Born This Way: Making Sense of Science, the Bible & Same Sex Attraction

Steve Morrison

$16.99

Paperback

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 conversation altogether.

In this short, down-to-earth book, Steve Morrison provides a way through the confusion, combining keen personal insight with years of 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. It provides a vital contribution to a conversation that wont go away.

Pertinent
4 stars By Julie, May 23 2017
Born This Way by Steve Morrison is a useful contribution to the gay marriage debate that is so current in Australia. The section on the scientific evidence for same sex attraction and the problems with such a broad definition as 'gay' are particularly helpful. I appreciated Morrison's straightforward, clearly presented approach. The volume is small and the book is easy to read. I recommend it is an important and accessible resource for these times.

Interesting..
4 stars By Raj, Dec 31 2015
With the plethora of books on the topic out at the moment (it seems everyone has something to say!), it was refreshing to read an objective treatment of the biblical texts used by both sides of the argument. With some science thrown in for good measure, this book is a genuine resource to have on hand when studying further - with an honest and gracious outlook that doesn't sacrifice truth.

4 stars By Deborah, Apr 10 2015
Great book written with both compassion and objectivity. Excellent treatment of the science related to this issue. It will get your brain working but short enough to get through quickly as well. Definitely recommend it!
