9781937756697: The Uncomfortable Church: Can Gays Be Reconciled to the Body of Christ

How is a Christian to view same-gender partners? And what is God's plan for love, sex, marriage, and ordination in the 21st century? Is it possible for Bible-believing Christians and gays and lesbians to reconcile and move toward a place of understanding? Dr. Brice, veteran pastor, television host, and author (Confident Faith, In a World That Wants to Believe, Deep River Books) says, Yes. It's not only possible, but it's long overdue! In this important book, Dr. Brice faithfully interprets scripture and, with honesty, defines traditional marriage. At the same time, he opens the doors for compassion and mission to a hurting and marginalized minority. Without shying away from the difficult questions posed by the revisionist's re-interpretation of scripture, or the heartfelt appeal of today's homosexuals for inclusion and value in our contemporary world, Dr. Brice offers hope, acceptance, and support for gays and lesbians who seek to live a godly, righteous life with the support of the church. In a scholarly, yet easily accessible way, Dr. Brice seeks to: clarify why conservative Christians can not and should not change their stance on the policy of God's plan for sexuality; help believers accept a persecuted and hurting minority-so as never to offend or push anyone away, destroying their potential to know Jesus Christ and live a godly life; and aid in the denominational-wide policy discussions on homosexuality. The Uncomfortable Church should be read by every minister and church member in denominations debating gay ordination and marriage and everyone committed to walking in the footsteps of Jesus. It's timely. It's challenging. It's uncomfortable. And it may just change your mind about how to reconcile gays and lesbians with the body of Christ.
