Synopses & Reviews
Homosexuals and their friends, family, and supporters wishing to engage in meaningful and heartfelt discussions with conservative Christians will appreciate this resource of facts and inspirational essays, as will Christians striving to be compassionate and tolerant. By confronting one of this generation's most volatile social issues with civility and respect, the book shifts the emphasis away from political arguments toward gently changing religious attitudes, utilizing methods such as daily spiritual practices and figurative Bible study. Fully supported by biblical references and rounded out by recommendations for further reading and helpful websites, the extensively researched discussions on display make for the perfect tool to promote profound healing and reconciliation between two communities who often misunderstand one another.
