Description

Jesus often chose compassion over the law, by healing on the Sabbath, by eating with the unwashed, by not stoning the adulteress. I understand that this is meant to be an introductory text but, like most introductory texts I have read, it left me wanting more space to actually wrestle with the issue and arrive at a deeply Biblical and beautiful conclusion.

Likewise, sound doctrinal foundations with a sound, biblical sexual ethic are fundamental to an accurate understanding of the challenge of homosexuality.

The passages he talks about are Genesis 19; Leviticus 18, 20; Romans 1:18-32; 1 Corinthians 6:9-10; and 1 Timothy 1:9-10). This short book is helpful to form a basic framework for a gospel-centered approach to confronting homosexuality and same sex attraction.

In the end, Allberry gives us a coherent account of SSA that resonates both with the clear teaching of Scripture and also with our collective experience as members of a fallen humanity. Allberry clearly prefers the ESV translation, which includes narrow translations of the Greek where the NIV differs substantially. It is a posture of our hearts to match God’s loving heart is what is required and Sam brings that across so very well. Little of this material is new; Alberry’s virtue is his ability to explain it winsomely in short space, backed up by his personal testimony and experience. I thought this was going to be a pro gay book and I found within more arguments backed up my scripture proving how sexual immorality is wrong in any context.A good marriage is one of the life factors most strongly and consistently associated with happiness, says psychologist Jonathan Haidt in ‎The Happiness Hypothesis. However, I would recommend that you don’t do that, but that instead you take the time to go through it. While I would not express things exactly as Allberry does in this book, I found it to be soundly biblical, warm, kind, and pastoral- a book worth recommending to any member of my church or anyone struggling with the Bible's clear teaching on homosexuality. Sam’s excellent book has already profoundly helped tens of thousands in its first edition—I’m sure this updated version will wonderfully increase its positive impact long-term.

Instead, they’re rooted in two key things: the goodness of God’s word, and the author’s own experience of same-sex attraction.However, alongside this caveat, Sam affirms that what the Bible does have to say about homosexuality is clear and important. And as Jesus himself said that he only came for the sick and just as the sick know they need the doctor, those that are in sin know we need a savior. isn’t an exhaustive, comprehensive guide to every question anyone might ever have on Christianity and homosexuality. With sensitivity and clarity, courage and wisdom, Sam Allberry walks us through a host of challenging questions and provides compelling and gracious answers. Regardless of Allberry’s commitment to a pastoral tone throughout his book, he consistently describes the expression and existence of queer persons and “those who struggle with same-sex attraction,” as flaws resulting from the sin of humankind.

Author and speaker Sam Allberry has expanded and restructured his best-selling book, which draws on his own experience as a believer who experiences same-sex attraction. Allberry’s argument is that homosexual relationships are not in line with God’s design for humanity, and therefore are not compatible with life in Christ. This short pamphlet is extremely helpful in cultivating a biblical view of homosexuality and in determining how to deal with same sex attraction as a believer, as a church in relation to other believers, and as a church in relation to the world. Here at last is a concise book written with sensitivity and insight by a Christian who is himself gay.

whilst the subtitle; ‘And other questions about homosexuality, the Bible and same-sex attraction’ is a helpful hint that this book is going to be more than a one word answer. There is no one righteous, not even one; there is no one who understands; there is no one who seeks God.
