God And The Gay Christian
The Biblical Case In Support Of Same-sex Relationships
BY MATTHEW VINES
As a young Christian man, the author confronted the tension between his understanding of theBible and the reality of his same-sex orientation. Based on intensive research, he addresses such questions as: What does the story of Sodom and Gomorrah really say about human relationships? Do biblical teachings on the marriage covenant preclude same-sex marriage or not? Can celibacy be a calling when it is mandated, not chosen? Unique in its affirmation of both an orthodox faith and sexual diversity, this book is both an interpretation of key biblical texts and the story of a young man navigating relationships with family and church, discovering what it means to be a faithful gay Christian.
