About "Definitive Guidance"
Using the statements from the 1977, 1978, and 1979 General Assemblies of the Presbyterian Church in the U.S. and the United Presbyterian Church in the U.S.A., this ten-session study guide seeks to help Presbyterians understand the denomination's position on homosexuality and the role that "definitive guidance" plays in policy decisions about this issue. Included is a foreword by Stated Clerk Clifton Kirkpatrick, which places these issues in context for todays Presbyterians, as well as the original statements from the 1977, 1978, and 1979 General Assemblies.
