Westminster John Knox Press Welcoming But Not Affirming: An Evangelical Response to Homosexuality

In this carefully reasoned and thoroughly researched analysis, Grenz asks: Are same-sex relationships a viable, God-given way of giving expression to our sexuality? He reviews scientific research, the history of Christian teaching on homosexuality, the issue of biblical authority today, and the practical issues the church now faces, such as the blessing of same-sex unions, the ordination of homosexuals, and the church's public stance on gay right issues. Ultimately he proposes that it is possible for Christian communities to welcome homosexuals without affirming same-sex unions.

So far it is too deep. I think it is more for people in authority in the Church verses the masses.

In a time where more and more churches are coming to a crossroads in terms of this issue, Grenz takes a studied, yet compassionate approach. This was a must read for our deacon board to address the issue fairly and still maintain a biblical perspective. Excellent!
