:

A Christian parents? guide to beginning open and honest discussions about homosexuality

Christian parents need to be prepared to answer the myriad challenges teens might hear in today's increasingly pro homosexual culture. ?Why shouldn?t gays get married?? ?Who says gay sex is wrong?? ?Does the Bible actually say there's anything wrong with homosexuality?? ?Don?t you care that kids are being bullied just for being themselves??

To start the discussion, Gilson provides a brief history of the issues beginning with the sexual revolution of the 1960s. He explains how and why cultural attitudes have reversed on this subject in such a short timespan, leaving Christians scrambling for answers.

This is perhaps the most complicated and contentious issue Christians face in today's culture. Most churches are poorly equipped to handle it; parents are even less prepared. The good news is that parents need not have pat answers ready before they dive into conversations with their teens and preteens on this difficult topic. Learning together?parents struggling through these issues alongside their kids and leading them to biblical answers? has relational benefits.

Answers are important, though, so manageable, nontechnical answers to common questions surrounding this issue are provided, as well as a guide to further resources.
