About "Love Into Light: The Gospel, the Homosexual and the Church"
Homosexuality is one of most controversial moral issues of our day. Headlines teem with stories of athletes'"coming out," politicians changing positions and courts handing down same-sex marriage rulings. Sadly the church has often been afraid to talk about homosexuality. Many Christians feel confused and divided between the call to love and the call for truth. And many who struggle with unwanted same-sex attraction feel alone and alienated by the church. The time is ripe for God's people to think and speak about same-sex attraction in a way that is both biblical and beneficial. We must reject our fears and misunderstandings and see ourselves together in need of the grace of Jesus. Love Into Light is designed to move the church toward that end. Written from the heart of a pastor with a love for people and a sensitivity to our culture, Love Into Light is your next step toward becoming more faithfully and helpfully engaged with people in your families, in your church and in your neighborhood.

The author presents how the gospel impacts interaction with people same-sex attracted (SSA) and the LGBT community. He presents with compassion, however does not compromise on biblical teaching against homosexuality. I think one of the greatest values in this book was the author challenging the church to be welcoming and confronts the often un-Christlike response the church has often had toward people with SSA and LGBT identity. Instead of fear, the church must respond with love and care. A difference from some other resources is the author is not someone struggling with homosexuality personally. However, he does offer his experience from investing in friendship and counselling with people who are SSA. So, I would recommend also reading a good resource written by a Christian battling SSA personally. I appreciated his humble perspective that all people are struggling in some areas of life. This book is a helpful addition to the resources for the church to respond to the responsibility of addressing SSA and homosexuality. I recommend it.
