Our culture has rapidly changed its stance on homosexuality, not only accepting it, but celebrating it. This change has not stopped at the doors of the church however. More and more Christians are rejecting the Bible’s teaching on homosexuality by mis-interpreting what the Bible teaches and then giving more weight to the appeals the broader culture is making.
In this book DeYoung looks at the various passages in the Bible that deal with homosexuality. Very thoroughly and helpfully, he digs deep into the text to help us understand it properly. In the second half of the book, he interacts with the most common objections given to the historical, biblical understanding of sexual morality. These chapters “seek to demonstrate that there are no persuasive historical, cultural, pastoral, or hermeneutical reasons for setting aside the plain meaning of the Bible as it has been understood for nearly two millennia.”
