BOOK REVIEW: “God and the Gay Christian”



I am blessed by the respectful and scholarly tone of this book, a sincere effort to resolve the agony felt by uncounted gay Christians honestly wanting to be in an obedient relationship with Jesus. Matthew Vines does a credible job of wrestling with the Bible’s difficult passages, and brings a laudable amount of context and history to the struggle. I concede I’m not yet familiar with all of the counterarguments undoubtedly out there already, plus new ones that will continue to flow into this debate. But any pastor or believer who wants to more deeply comprehend both the emotional struggles surrounding this topic as well as the Scriptural foundations to be evaluated will want to read “God and the Gay Christian.”
