Read full description of the books: Torn: rescuing the gospel from the gays-vs.-christians debate

No matter what your theological convictions on gay relationships, you need to read this book. If you think "gay Christian" is an oxymoron, you need to read this book. If you know someone who's gay, you need to read this book. If you don't know anyone who's gay, you need to read this book. If you think gays have an "agenda," you need to read this book. If you think the church knows how to show grace to gay individuals, YOU NEED TO READ THIS BOOK. If you are aware that the church is failing in this area, you need to read this book.Basically: You need to read it.It's not a book defending the morality of gay relationships. Less than one chapter is spent describing Justin's perspective on the passages in the Bible dealing with homosexuality. Rather, this book is his story, and his thoughts on how the church has failed to show grace to gays, and how Christians of all theological persuasions can change this. Don't read this as a theological treatise. Read it as a story, because that's what it is.I cried when reading how people in the church have failed to show grace to gay individuals, and how they have even told celibate gay Christians they're going to hell for their "sin". This is not showing grace to gay people.We (Christians) need to be aware of what gay individuals are going through, we need to be educated on the issues, we need to stop looking at this issue with a "Christians vs. gays" mentality, when there are many people who are both Christian and struggle with same-sex attraction. And this book is a most excellent starting point.Though I don't agree with Justin's theological conclusions, I still recommend this book wholeheartedly.
