Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Representing a first in gay and Christian publishing, this provocative book presents a complete reversal of thought and action, contending that God loves homosexuals without attempting to refute scripture references. The study confronts its subject with a quirky sense of humor in the spirit of the “bedtime story,” providing a rare evangelical Christian volume addressed directly to the gay community. Unorthodox in its presentation, this guide speaks the language of those who may feel abandoned, condemned, and damned while avoiding reinterpretations of scriptural passages, making the gospel accessible to a younger, free-spirited generation. Spearheading a volatile topic with candor and grace, this consideration reframes the never-ending question, Is homosexuality a sin? and instead asks the gay community for a cease-fire—to forgive, love, and help put a stop to a cultural war being waged in the world.

This is not a politically correct book, but often the raw truth isn’t easy to hear. James Alexander Langteaux is a television producer who worked for Christian broadcasting networks alongside several notable evangelists, including Pat Robertson. But while spreading the good news, Langteaux was leading a double life: he is a gay man who loves God. A Bible passage about Peter led Langteaux to a personal revelation: God breaks the rules to welcome outsiders in. In his own irreverently funny yet heartbreakingly honest way, Langteaux points out the rejection of the gay community in specific by the Christian fundamentalist establishment and in general by society. The emotional toll of being told that he is an abomination in the eyes of God almost broke Langteaux, but from his despair arose his own gospel of hope: God is madly and passionately in love with all of his kids ��" gay, straight or somewhere in between. Boldly and without apology, Gay Conversations with God welcomes all people of faith into the fold, right where they belong.
