Description

Is it ok to be gay and Christian? Does the Bible really say that homosexuality is wrong? Is sexual orientation fundamental to identity?

Author and speaker Sam Allberry has expanded and restructured his best-selling book, which draws on his own experience as a believer who experiences same-sex attraction. As well as exploring Bible passages that talk directly about homosexuality, this new edition frames the whole discussion with Jesus’ general teaching on sex and marriage, as well as what Jesus teaches about finding ultimate satisfaction and happiness. It also challenges the current culture narrative, which inextricably ties sexuality to personal identity, and he shows that the gospel is good news for everyone, whatever their sexual orientation.

This sensitive exploration of the Bible’s teaching on sexuality has been written to help both Christians and non-Christians struggling with the Bible's teaching on this issue, whether they experience same-sex attraction themselves or not.

Includes answers to questions such as…

• Does Jesus ever mention same-sex relationships?
• Aren’t people just born this way?
• What should I do if a Christian comes out to me?
• Surely, isn't a same-sex partnership ok if it’s committed and faithful?
• Is it sinful to experience same-sex attraction?
• Isn’t the Christian view of sexuality harmful?
• Aren’t we just picking and choosing which Old Testament laws apply?
• Can’t Christians just agree to differ on this?
• Should Christians attend gay weddings?

Is God Anti-Gay is filled with biblical teaching and pastoral wisdom. Sam writes as a same-sex attracted Christian who does not experience his life as impoverished or sub-human. I am delighted to recommend this book.

President, Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, Southern Baptist Convention, Author, Tempted and Tried: Temptation and the Triumph of Christ

The gospel is good news, for homosexuals too. The gospel doesn't define us by our temptations but by the righteousness of Christ. This book sets forth the biblical case. The author captures perfectly the gospel's call to repentance and offer of mercy. Read this book and consider how God is calling you to love, in word and in deed, all of those around you.

Mark Dever

Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church

Empathetic & 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.

For and Against?

Philemon Tracker, Evangelicals Now

Sam's testimony is that biblical faith is a source of great comfort and joy. What comes across is a pastor’s heart for people. Sam offers practical pointers for Christians who are struggling with the issue. There is also some helpful guidance for churches that, perhaps more frequently than ever before, are being called upon to support such believers in their life journeys. All this wisdom is set squarely in the context of a succinct exposition of the relevant Bible texts.... continue reading

Is God anti-gay?

Dave McDonald, Macarisms, September 3rd 2014

It’s not shaped by politics, sensationalism, or right-wing ideologies. It’s not seeking to ride the trends of culture or church opinion. This book is an attempt to seek the mind of God honestly and sensitively from the Bible.... continue reading
