Paperback

It's the hot topic of the moment. Christians, the church and the Bible seem to be out of step with modern attitudes towards homosexuality. And there is growing hostility towards those who hold a different view. So is God homophobic? And what do we say, and how do we relate to to both Christians and non Christians who experience same-sex attraction.

In this short, simple book, Sam Allberry wants to help confused Christians understand what God has said about these questions in the scriptures, and offers a positive and liberating way forward through the debate.

Empathetic and wise, learned and clear, hopeful and kind--this book by Sam Allberry is on a topic that can be very challenging. It would be helpful for just about anyone to read.
- Mark Dever, Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church

Truly marvellous. Sam writes from the perspective of a pastor who himself struggles with same sex attraction. This makes the book more compassionate and compelling. Sam's humanity shines through every page; his understanding of weakness undergirds the whole; his compassion for those facing that which he himself faces each day is deeply moving. This book would make an excellent resource for pastors and elders to keep on hand, given that this is an issue which is set to become more, not less, significant and contentious.

A MUST READ
5 stars By Tricia, Jan 13 2018
Recommended for everyone, both Christians and non-Christians! With the author sharing his experiences in struggling with homosexual attraction as a Christian and the prejudices and support he experienced because of this, it was a very informative and credible read. 


Ultimately very helpful for understanding BOTH the Christian and non-Christian perspective, and how God works through this, because He shows His love and salvation to everyone!!! 


When I read the title the burning question stuck with me, although I had vaguely formed my own assumptions. But this short read revealed so much to me that I had never even considered in around 100 short pages. Recommended for all adults and young teens (mature 11 or 12 year olds and older). PLEASE take the time to read this, and share it with friends and family, it's also very cheap~ :)

Great Introduction to an Important Topic
5 stars By Ben, Oct 24 2016
This book really is a must-read for anyone who wants to know what the Bible really teaches about homosexuality. Sam Allberry (the author) is a pastor who himself struggles with same-sex attraction, and he handles this topic with compassion, grace, and understanding. This is a breath of fresh air.

It's a short read, which makes it a great book to lend  give away, and is also a really helpful resource to read with someone as a conversation-starter. Sam not only addresses what the Bible does (and doesn't) say on this topic, but also gives great practical advice and pastoral wisdom from his own experience. 

Couldn't recommend this book more highly.

Concise but not contrite
5 stars By Rory, Sep 27 2016
This is an outstanding book that frames this whole issue in a loving, caring and understanding way without shying away from the truth of scripture. Sam is very honest and personal in this book and you can tell he is writing out of concern for others and not to win an argument. Helpful to read for yourself and then pass on to others, believers or not, who are grappling with God and homosexuality. The biggest thing that we all need, gay or straight is to find our identities in Christ and not our sexuality or anything else, because anything else won't satisfy.

We All Need Jesus
5 stars By Helen, Sep 01 2016
Sam Allberry's book on homosexuality may be concise, but it is filled to the brim with Biblical wisdom and honest advice. Sam guides the reader lovingly, gently and clearly through what God says about marriage, sexuality and homosexuality, and answers several commonly asked, and often misunderstood questions in ways which were truthful and faithful to the character and love of Jesus Christ. 

I highly recommend this book to any church or non-church goer (whether same sex attracted or not), it's a remarkable resource from which the glory and love of God displayed on the cross is ultimately the resounding message. At the end of the day, it is only in Jesus, the bread of life, that true joy, satisfaction and forgiveness can be found.
