About "How to Respond to Marriage Reality in Australia's Current Debate"

The same-sex marriage debate in Australia has reached the point where it may soon be subject to a plebiscite - a nationwide official survey that decides the will of the people on a matter. In this brief, helpful book, comedian and pastor Bill Medley explains clearly just what is at stake for the definition of marriage if this plebiscite goes ahead, and how Christians should respond in the lead-up.

This book is directed to the Christian church. Within the next couple of months Australians may well be entering a polling booth to vote on a plebiscite that will determine the definition of marriage in Australia. The outcome of that vote could affect more than just who has the right to marry. It may be critical to the future of our society in the next generation.

A brief survey is given on shifts in marriage in society and where the Bible itself gives examples of where people have departed from marriage between one man and one woman.

In this book an attempt is made to answer the following sorts of questions.

How should Christians respond in the lead up to this plebiscite? If there is a separation of church and state, should the church be included the debate? Are there issues of a practical nature that both religious and non-religious people would consider worthy of debate? What can we say to those who oppose the view of marriage as one man, one woman? Is this matter settled in the church? How do we respond to religious discrimination? These are just some of the questions this book addresses. A response is required!

Heart matters
3 stars By Fiona, Jan 05 2018
This small book provides sufficient historical perspective on the issue of marriage equality. Bill supplies the reader with a balanced perspective, while advocating against judgement and challenging the reader to objectively understand the greater battle out there- against Jesus. The need for the church to preach the truth and mercy of God is all the more needful in such times.

RELEVANT!
4 stars By YDLife, Aug 28 2017
This short and informative book is a great collection of thoughts related to the upcoming decision. It's the most balanced and biblical respectful position I have come across amidst the plethora of opinions online. Even if you don't agree, I think it's great to have in the arsenal as we consider the ramifications and what we are really voting for here.

This short book serves as a great introduction to the cultural, social, and theological issues involved in the current 'marriage debate'. Bill is adamant that believers be equipped with understanding and mobilised to be vocal about protecting the historic sanctity of marriage between man and woman.
