Chances are you know someone who is gay--a coworker, family member, or friend. And chances are, as a Christian, you're not exactly sure how to relate to this person. While the church has been pretty good at "hating the sin," it hasn't really known how to "love the sinner" without fear of condoning a homosexual lifestyle.

Chad Thompson, a man who has struggled with homosexual feelings, argues that "homosexuality needs to be solved through relationships." Drawing from the life and words of Jesus, Thompson gives readers permission to love and befriend homosexuals before they change--and radically, even if they never change--their sexual orientation.

This candid book includes an appendix of additional resources. It will be a valuable tool for pastors, teachers, counselors, and any Christian who knows someone who is gay.

About the Author:

Chad Thompson is a writer and speaker living in Des Moines, Iowa. He is the founder of Inqueery, an organization that addresses homosexuality on high school and college campuses, and is the former media specialist for the Iowa Family Policy Center. Thompson is also the author of The Homophobia Stops Here, a high school resource. Visit his website at www.LovingHomosexuals.com

From Booklist:

Gays who claim to have changed their sexual orientation get no respect, according to Thompson, who makes this point only at the conclusion of this excellent book of counsel and personal testimony, and then only to urge that they come out about their wish to change just as they came out about being gay. Before then, he parcels out his own story of turning away from homosexuality as he urges Christians to love gays by fighting antigay discrimination, bigotry, and violence, and, most important, by opening the church and their arms to them. He means the latter literally, for he is convinced that lack of nonerotic same-sex physical affection is a major factor in developing homosexuality, and that practice with it--hugging--is crucial to short-circuit and prevent homoeroticism. As the book proceeds, Thompson tells ever more of his own story, and with it much about psychologist Joseph Nicolosi's controversial reparative therapy for homosexuality. Doing so, he clarifies and strengthens his overall message of love without strings even as he defends reparative therapy. Ray Olson
