Paperback: 184 pages
Publisher: Brazos Press (November 1, 2004)
Chances are you know someone who is gay a coworker, family member, or friend. And chances are, as a Christian, you’re not exactly sure how to relate to this person. While the church has been pretty good at “hating the sin,” it hasn’t really known how to “love the sinner” without fear of condoning a homosexual lifestyle. Chad Thompson, a man who has struggled with homosexual feelings, argues that “homosexuality needs to be solved through relationships.” Drawing from the life and words of Jesus, Thompson gives readers permission to love and befriend homosexuals before they change and radically, even if they never change their sexual orientation. This candid book includes an appendix of additional resources. It will be a valuable tool for pastors, teachers, counselors, and any Christian who knows someone who is gay.
