Publisher's Summary

In just a few short years, massive shifts in public opinion have radically reshaped society's views on homosexuality. Feeling the pressure to forsake long-held beliefs about sex and marriage, some argue that Christians have historically misunderstood the Bible's teaching on this issue. But does this approach do justice to what the Bible really teaches about homosexuality?

In this timely audiobook, award-winning author Kevin DeYoung challenges each of us - the skeptic, the seeker, the certain, and the confused - to take a humble look at God's Word. Examining key biblical passages in both the Old and New Testaments and the Bible's overarching teaching regarding sexuality, DeYoung responds to popular objections raised by Christians and non-Christians alike - offering listeners an indispensable resource for thinking through one of the most pressing issues of our day.

Clear, Faithful Biblical Explanation

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. DeYoung does an excellent job of explaining the Biblical position clearly and faithfully, in a both gentle, but assertive manner. Although he is admittedly writing from a position of defending the traditional view of marriage, he fairly represents the opposing viewpoints, and is not unkind or ungracious in his responses. Would recommend to anyone seeking answers or struggling with their own perspective on this issue.

Great, accessible analysis

This book is for anyone who is seeking wisdom regarding an area of life that has great currency at this time. DeYoung's exegesis is thoughtful and thorough. Not everyone will like what he has to say--but everyone should concede that he does not leave any stones unturned. A must read for Christians!

Well researched and a strong debate

I'm a believer, and one leaning progressive, but long questioning the church on this subject. I've wondered and prayed about the subject of homosexuality and it's impact on many of my friends and family members.

Regardless of your stance, it's always better to be learned about a subject instead of ignorant. To that end, this is a very well researched, thorough exploration of the biblical perspective toward homosexuality. It may or may not impact your beliefs on the subject, but I guarantee it will give information you didn't have before.

Not just about homosexuality, but about sin

God loves us and Jesus has covered all of our sins if we accept that gift. Sin is sin no matter what label humans put on it.

One of the best on the topic

This is one of the most biblically based books you can read on the topic. Pastor Kevin presents his arguments in a concise and understandable manner. His stances are clearly backed by scripture, but his delivery is not demeaning or harsh as other articles or books on the topic. Pastor Kevin also presents the strongest arguments in favor of supporting the LGBT community as a Christian, but he shows that they aren't very strong arguments at all and not backed by scripture.

An articulation of the traditional view

This book assumes that scripture is inerrant and proceeds to show that revisionist interpretations that would understand homosexuality practice to be permissible are not valid exegesis. It does have good qualifications in places but I felt a bit more of a pastoral tone would be useful (admittedly much of this is in the appendices 2 and 3).
it would be better if audible could add the chapter names instead of just chp 1, 2... they should be:
1 Introduction: What Does the Bible Teach about Everything?
2 One Man, One Woman, One Flesh (Genesis 1– 2)
3 Those Infamous Cities (Genesis 19)
4 Taking a Strange Book Seriously (Leviticus 18, 20)
5 The Romans Road in the Wrong Direction (Romans 1)
6 A New Word from an Old Place (1 Corinthians 6; 1 Timothy 1
7 “The Bible Hardly Ever Mentions Homosexuality”
8 “Not That Kind of Homosexuality”
9 “What about Gluttony and Divorce?”
10 “The Church Is Supposed to Be a Place for Broken People”
11 “You’re on the Wrong Side of History”
12 “It’s Not Fair”
13 “The God I Worship Is a God of Love”
14 Conclusion: Walking with God and Walking with Each Other in Truth and Grace
15 Appendix 1: What about Same-Sex Marriage?
16 Appendix 2: Same-Sex Attraction: Three Building Blocks
17 Appendix 3: The Church and Homosexuality: Ten Commitments

Every christian should read this book

What excellent coverage of the issues re homosexuality facing us today in the 21st Century. A solid biblical basis is taken to address the issues. Even if the first part is a bit 'heavy' , the latter chapters, with their practical applications, are easy to read and understand. I did myself a favour by taking the time, in our crazy and busy world, to listen to this book. I will endeavour to listen to more of Kevin DeYoung.
