9780836194302: Reasoning Together: A Conversation on Homosexuality, Foreword by Tony and Peggy Campolo

This book emerges from a series of public conversations on homosexuality by two Mennonite theology professors with clearly different perspectives on the issue. Reasoning Together expands on these conversations. The first section sets the context for the conversation, identifying the key issues and describing the differences among Christians on these issues. The second section contains the main constructive presentations from each writer along with each responding to the other. Here we have extensive theological and biblical reflection. In the third section, each writer asks the other two questions, triggering extensive give and take. The book concludes with a short chapter sketching areas of agreement amidst the disagreements that have been the focus of the earlier chapters and two annotated bibliographies.

Review:

The authors make their respective cases with in-depth examinations of what the Scriptures teach about homosexuality and what the empirical evidence tells us about God's homosexual children. They also provide insights and information that will enlighten future discussions about homosexual people.
--Tony and Peggy Campolo, from the foreword

A courageous exercise in hope. All readers, regardless of strength of position or state of confusion, will find much in this book to destablize certainties that need to be rattled, much to shore up inadequately grounded convictions, and much to help understand those who think differently. This is no small gift.
--Thomas R. Yoder Neufeld, author of Ephesians, Believers Church Bible Commentary

Ted and Mark are bold in their own declarations and gut-wrenchingly forthright in their critique of each other. But their abiding mutual respect and Christian charity shines through.
--Phil Kniss, Park View Mennonite Church
