What God Has Joined Together: The Christian Case for Gay Marriage Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Gay marriage has become the most important domestic social issue facing twenty-first-century Americans — particularly Americans of faith. Most Christians are pro-marriage and hold traditional family values, but should they endorse extending marriage rights to gays and lesbians? If Jesus enjoined us to love our neighbors as ourselves, and the homosexual is our neighbor, does that mean we should accept and bless gay marriages? These and other, related questions are tearing many faith-based communities apart.

Across the country, states have voted, courts have debated, and churches have divided over the legitimacy of same-sex marriage. Amid the uproar one perspective is decidedly missing: that of thoughtful, pro-marriage Christians who, informed by their faith, are struggling to make sense of this issue. What God Has Joined Together? is an effort to bridge the divide between marriage-supporting and gay-supporting people of faith by showing why both sides have important things to say and showing how both sides can coexist. Drawing on scientific research as well as on the Bible, the authors explain that marriage is emotionally, physically, financially, and spiritually beneficial for everyone, not just heterosexuals.

They debunk myths about sexual orientation, assess claims of sexual reorientation, and explore what the Bible does and does not say about same-sex relationships. The book ends with a persuasive case for gay marriage and outlines how this can be a win-win solution for all.

Synopsis:

Named one of the "Detroit Free Press" 2005 Top Ten Books with Spiritual <P>Themes Nominated for the American Library Association's 2006 Stonewall Book Award

Synopsis:

A conservative argument for gay marriage by leading Evangelical Christian social psychologists.

Same sex marriage continues to be a hotandndash;button issue, especially for people of faith. Now in paperback, this concise book examines in an accessible way the social scientific and biblical dimensions of this issue that continues to capture headlines and ignite people's passions on both sides. By affirming marriageandndash;for allandndash;What God Has Joined Together concurs with conservatives's call for marriage renewal and a more marriageandndash;supporting culture. And it concurs with liberal's affirmation of everyone's right, regardless of sexual orientation, to seal love with commitment and to full participation in the life of the church.

A reading group guide was already included in the hardcover. This new paperback will additionally include an interview with both authors on why they wrote the book, the controversy it has caused, and an update on the political landscape for gay marriage since the hardcover was released.
