The landmark book exploring what the Bible actually says–and doesn’t say–about same-sex relationships.
As a young Christian man, Matthew Vines harbored the same basic hopes of most young people: to some-day share his life with someone, to build a family of his own, to give and receive love. But when he realized he was gay, those hopes were called into question. The Bible, he’d been taught, condemned gay relationships.
– How should we apply the teachings of Jesus to the gay debate?
– Can celibacy be a calling when it is mandated, not chosen?
– What did Paul have in mind when he warned against same-sex relations? Unique in its affirmation of both an orthodox faith and sexual diversity, God and the Gay Christian has sparked heated debate, sincere soul search-ing, and widespread cultural change on the issue of what it means to be a faithful gay Christian.
