This has very good biblical references, and answers probably most, if noy all, of d questions you may have about witnessing to friends and family who are homosexual. Please remember when you read it that this book is 10 years old at this point, and some research points may be a little out of date, but many of them still remain true, and the Bible refernces will never change. This has helped me know how to respond appropriately toward my friend who is openly out, and my sister who came out this year. I have been able to stay true to my beliefs without hurting them with the help of this book (and prayer, and Godly counsel, too, please make sure you have a Godly person to talk to!) I took off one star because it is a little older, but I would buy this book again, Ina heartbeat.

The author does seem to be sincere in his advice. However, he's misguided in a couple of things. First, he seems to believe that homosexuality is a psychological disorder. He even quotes older editions of the DSM. But everyone knows that the APA made the decision in the 1970s to no longer list homosexuality as a psychological disorder.

Also, I was really confused at the beginning of this book because he uses "gender identity" as a synonym for "sexual orientation". Furthermore, he believes that homosexuals suffer from GID (Gender Identity Disorder). Gender identity is 101% different from sexual orientation; not all homosexuals have GID, and not everyone with GID is homosexual.

The research that Mr. Haley offers is, for the most part, outdated. I saw where some of his sources where from as early as the 1950s. Was there nothing more recent to back his claims?

Some of his advice was just plain silly. Like when he was giving advice about how to prevent homosexuality in your sons, he basically says that little boys should shower with their dad! Umm, do I need to say anything further? However, he does not say that little girls should shower with their mothers. We call that a double standard.

I also didn't like how he presented homosexuality. He made it look like the worst thing in the world. He also seems to think that all male homosexuals are feminine and all lesbians are butch. And he makes it sound like "the horrible gays are out to get us!"

So, overall, I'm sorry I waisted my money on this book (I did read the sample first, but I was still curious). Although some parts were amusing. I gave this book 2 stars only because some parts amused me and Mr. Haley does seem sincere.

The author is more generous than I would be to the APA and the phychological dilemma that is homosexuality. He examines questions that since the 1970's should have been in the purview of the APA, an organization that has relinquished its responsibility in this matter to the detriment of all involved and society as a whole. Unfortunately the gay agenda has filled the vacuum with political answers to questions that should have been thoroughly studied and resolved by scientists, real scientists. Still, the author's thoughts on the subject are worthy of consideration and would contribute to understanding of the subject...unless your mind has been closed by the convenient answers supplied by those who are telling you what you want to hear.

It was a good book, but rather narrow and introductory in its approach. A good place for those beginning to search for information from a Christian perspective.

Format: Paperback
"101 Frequently Asked Questions About Homosexuality" is a primer I think most casual readers will pull down from the shelf most often to review, to consult and to share with others. It is not a politically correct book and the author does not advocate moral relativism. And I have to admit - Haley's direct counsel and firm stance on Biblical principles even startled me in a couple of places. But he is sensitive, sincere and consistent throughout.

The author made a wise decision to begin by reiterating the danger and folly of labeling (stereotyping) people and making snap judgments. No matter which "side of the issue" we are on, we shouldn't let our assumptions, biases, subjective experiences, lack of understanding or intolerance negate or blindly lead us to ignore, dismiss, attack or diminish another person just because he has sincere (but different) beliefs, values or opinions. We should speak to the other person's humanity. Genuinely make the effort to understand and relate to him or her as an individual.

Here's a breakdown of the content . . .

Answers for Families (19 questions)

Mike Haley's answers to these four questions in particular impressed me the most:
(1) To what extent should a gay father (living with another man) be involved in the lives of his children?
