Homosexuality and the Authority of Scripture

I began writing this book as an email to my sister when she expressed concern over our new support for same-sex marriage. She asked how we could continue to respect Scripture with this position.

Today I'm nearing the end of transferring that "email" into a 50k word book. You can read most of it online at, and I'll add the rest when complete.

There are many books out there about the Christian response to LGBT folks. This one is a careful attempt to show that a conservative evangelical-style Bible study approach can resolve the apparent conflict.
