In this book, Chad Thompson, a formerly gay man, calls Christians to disarm the gay community by "loving first". Drawing from the life and words of Jesus, Thompson teaches readers how to love and befriend homosexuals before they change - and even if they never change - their sexual orientation. He addresses in detail many common questions surrounding homosexuality: Is being gay a choice, or is it genetically determined?; Can homosexuals change their orientation?; If so, how does it happen? This book includes an appendix of additional resources as well as a useful list of endnotes for the benefit of therapists or any Christian struggling with the controversy over homosexuality.

Date:May 26, 2009
Compassionate and insightfully written. Most Christians will find this book educational and useful. It would be especially appropriate in a small group ministry for book discussion.

Review 2 for Loving Homosexuals as Jesus Would: A Fresh Christian Approach
Date:January 17, 2006
This book is a must read for Christians to gain insight and compassion for those who struggle with homosexuality. It also is a call for the Christian community to rise up to embrace and encourage the person and to see each one as an individual who needs to find acceptance and unconditional love. The end of the book also has a great list of resources not only for homosexuals but also for friends and family.
