View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

This book examines the question of whether homosexuality as a trait is a nonmoral good as opposed to the question whether homosexual acts are morally good or right. The analysis incorporates insights from the biological and social sciences and is based upon assumptions about sexuality consistent with a Christian theological point of view. It closes with a recommendation for a Biblical and compassionate approach to the church's ministry of gays and lesbians.
