CT Review of Homosexuality & The Christian

Christianity Today Book Reviews offers the following summary of Homosexuality and the Christian: A Guide for Parents, Pastors, and Friends:

As debates about homosexuality rage in political and religious circles, Christians struggling with same-sex attraction often suffer silently. The gay community hands those with same-sex attraction a “script” that collapses sexual attraction, behavior, and identity into one label. Yarhouse challenges the church to provide an alternative script, one that makes identity in Christ central, and therefore carefully distinguishes between temptation, behavior, and the center of one’s identity. By taking into consideration those with same-sex attraction who nevertheless reject the gay identity, Yarhouse shifts the conversation from the causes of homosexuality to the choices one makes regarding the will of God. —Trevin Wax
