Can You Be Gay AND Christian? [Review]
Can you be gay and Christian? In days gone by, this would not have even been a question. But in these last days filled with so-called “wisdom,” fights for LGBQT rights, prominent gay politicians and other public figures, gay ministers, and gender neutral educational instruction, the question is here whether it should be or not. Some who are ultra-religious would perhaps scoff at or refuse to touch Can You Be Gay and Christian? by Dr. Michael L. Brown, perhaps until they read the subtitle: Responding with Love & Truth to Questions about Homosexuality. I can honestly say that I am so pleased I’ve read this book. It’s opened my mind and deepened my convictions both at the same time.
Dr. Brown brings his let’s-get-to-the-bottom-of-this-issue + no-nonsense style to this book and it reads like a textbook. But don’t let that scare you! It is a very necessary piece of literature for true Christians and especially, ministers, who want to truly understand what they are dealing with when they deal with the LGBQT community and the issues that come along with those who belong to and sympathize with the community. It’s also a great read for those who struggle with same-sex issues and are searching for how to reconcile their sexuality with God, Christianity, and the Bible.
