Grace. We want to domesticate it, calm it down, and stuff it into a blue blazer and a pair of khakis. But biblical grace—or charis—doesn't like to settle down. Grace is a dangerous topic because the Bible is a dangerous book. Take a journey into Charis—where harlots are hugged, enemies are enjoyed, and really bad people receive really good things from a Creator who stubbornly delights in undelightful people ... like us.
While Christian debates about homosexuality are most often dominated by biblical exegesis, this book seeks to give much-needed attention to the rich history of received Christian tradition, bringing the Bible into conversation with historical and systematic theology. To that end, both theologians and biblical scholars—well accomplished in their fields and conversant in issues of sexuality and gender—articulate and defend each of the two views.
A biblical and practical guide through the LGBT conversation, written for teens but not exclusively for teens. Living in the Gray World discusses what the Bible says about sexuality and gender, and helps younger Christians navigate the LGBTQ conversation with clarity and grace.
Named by Outreach Magazine as the culture resource of the year, People to Be Loved explores what the Bible says about homosexuality in a thorough yet down to earth way. It also addresses many of the practical and pastoral questions about the church and LGBTQ people.
Laurie was a Christian from an amazing Christian family. She was also in a same-sex relationship. Laurie didn't fit her own stereotypes of a "homosexual lifestyle." Although she knew the theology of God's design for marriage (and even believed it!), she didn't think she could live it out without hating herself. Laurie finally reached a point where she was going to either kill herself or come out as a lesbian atheist, but then someone came alongside her. This someone, Carolyn, walked alongside Laurie not with Leviticus 18, 1 Corinthians 6, or Romans 1, but heart-to-heart. What was that discipleship journey? How can you walk it out as yourself, alongside a loved one, or in a group? Grab the Journey Well Study and accompanying videos here.
