Stanton L. Jones presents an overview of the Christian understanding of sexuality in general and then skillfully tackles the revisionists of Scripture who are challenging the traditional Christian position of homosexuality. He then calls for Christians to act with compassion and yet continue to speak the truth without fear. This booklet will no doubt spark further inquiry into this timely topic for all who read it.

. . . perhaps the most useful thing to come out on the issue of homosexuality in a very long time. . . . a very useful tool to use in trying to improve dialogue and provide better understanding of both sides of the issue.
