It's why I've been missing in action for over a year. Every spare moment has been spent researching and writing my first book. I felt very called to do this. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B016WUQM4O I've seen too many young adults wrestling with the issue of homosexuality and mostly being dismissed by leaders when they ask valid questions. For example, why would God create someone with same-sex attraction only to condemn them for it? Most books on the topic start with a premise - condemn or support it - and then cherry-pick Bible verses and interpretations to fit the claim. Few seem to consider the matter objectively or address the more difficult questions. So, as an evangelical Christian who believes in the inerrancy of scripture, that's what I've attempted to do. I don't give my own opinions: Instead, I encourage readers to study in depth and draw their own. In addition to being a Bible study (with focus on the original Hebrew and Greek words), the book considers the plight of gay Christians, how gays are persecuted, the science of same-sex attraction, and addresses some of the social issues we face. The struggle has been to make what is, in effect, a scholarly book (with about 750 references) also a readable one. The style is conversational, but I decided to include three fictional short stories to get some of the points across. It will be interesting to hear whether or not this works. The book is available (in Kindle format) at the Amazon website. In response to my wife's request, I chose to use a pseudonym. This is an attempt to avoid the hate mail that, sadly, too often accompanies any discussion of this difficult topic. I do hope this book will help some as they struggle with how to address this issue of our time.
