God Did TOO Make Adam & Steve is short and concise yet filled with powerful and thought provoking content. Whether you are accepting of gay people and their families, opposed to the idea of gay relationships or somewhere in between, this book is designed to help readers replace blistering rhetoric with meaningful dialogue and deal with issues in a calm manner. Regardless of where you stand on the issue of equality for same sex couples, after reading this book you will approach the issue with deeper insight, increased understanding and the confidence to engage in meaningful conversation. Although marriage equality is a legal reality in America, a lot of controversy and misunderstanding still surrounds the issue. Many parents and families still struggle, some to the point of severely strained relationship. Wherever families are on their journey, God Did TOO Make Adam & Steve helps parents, siblings and friends of LGBT people to move towards love, support and acceptance. Religious differences still divide us and cause us to engage in heated and sometimes hurtful conversations. This book empowers people to engage in civil discourse in a non-threatening way. Writer Denny Smith brings a traditional background, a public school education, a social conscience, and a parent's love to the controversial issue of marriage equality. This book will lead you to consider... Is Sexual Orientation a "choice" or is it inherent? Is the love between two gay people any different than the love between a man and a woman? Is gay marriage really a threat to the institution of marriage? Is it possible for us to disagree without being disagreeable? Based on personal insight, scholarly reference, scriptural context, God Did TOO Make Adam & Steve confronts ideologues and bashers who would deny legal rights and human dignity to LGBT citizens. It drives a nail, although amicable, through the facade of political and religious extremism that denies that all men and women, regardless of sexuality, are children of a loving Creator. God Did TOO Make Adam & Steve is more than an academic text or social treatise, it is a saga of love and justice that supports the growing belief of mainstream America that marriage is a personal issue, constitutionally guaranteed.
