    Description

    Christians who are confused by the homosexuality debate raging in the US are looking for resources that are based solidly on a deep study of what Scripture says about the issue. In People to Be Loved, Preston Sprinkle challenges those on all sides of the debate to consider what the Bible says and how we should approach the topic of homosexuality in light of it.

    In a manner that appeals to a scholarly and lay-audience alike, Preston takes on difficult questions such as how should the church treat people struggling with same-sex attraction? Is same-sex attraction a product of biological or societal factors or both? How should the church think about larger cultural issues, such as gay marriage and gay pride? How (or if) Christians should do business with LGBT persons and supportive companies?

    Simply saying that the Bible condemns homosexuality is not accurate, nor is it enough to end the debate. Those holding a traditional view still struggle to reconcile the Bible's prohibition of same-sex attraction with the message of radical, unconditional grace. This book meets that need.

    Humble & Thorough

    Solid job methodically walking through relevant Scripture passages in order to unpack his view. He also takes the time to thoughtfully & respectfully engage with well-known scholars with whom he disagrees. Yet he does all this with a posture of humility unlike what I have seen elsewhere. The title sums up Preston’s approach pretty well.

    Shallow Empathy

    Very not okay with this book. I came to it looking for hope as a gay Christian, but it looks like there simply is no hope for me and my desire for a loving, monogamous, covenantial relationship with my partner. It looked like he might be sympathetic when he opened with a statement about challenging the conservative interpretation, chapter by chapter he dismisses every argument as either unfounded or misdirected, while giving no alternatives to those who live with this identity.

    I do not recommend this book to anyone looking for hope in the gay Christian lifestyle.

    My mind was exercised!:)

    This is for someone who has an open heart and loves God. It was amazingly written and well researched.
