He provides PLENTY of evidence to support most of his claims. A few were a stretch; but the overall effort of the book, and various points it firmly establishes make this an excellent and almost absolutely necessary addition to your library. It's definitely worth the time and money.
It seems to me it would be pretty hard to be a serious Biblical scholar and NOT come to the conclusions the author did. Being Missouri Synod Lutheran and a lesbian, my religious education has included a lot of scripture sutdy, so I appreciate the research that went into this book. Thank you for the time, energy and inspiration that went into the most complete and affirming book on this topic I've ever read!
I knew the methods and formula to study the Bible from a theological point of view, because of my many years of formal Bible education.But like many Christians, I just assumed that what I had been taught about homosexuality was true. I never questioned or researched the issue in the Bible. I wasn't even sure where the supposed verses of prohibitions were located in the Bible, because in the years of my Bible education, homosexuality was not a hot political issue. Christians just automatically assumed it was a sin, and that was that.
As I began to read GAYCHRISTIAN101, I was overwhelmed by the scholarly approach to the subject. Rick had so well researched and documented his book, that it read like a legal brief for a Supreme Court case. The book reads like a detailed manual of Homosexuality and the Bible.
After reading through the book the first time; I was not only impressed by the information, but I was astounded by the fact that the Bible, in fact, did not condemn homosexuality. I immediately called 3 of my friends and informed them of my new discovery. The 3 of us began to read and study the book together.
Currently; I've read the book 6 times. It is so loaded with information, that reading it several times is a must. I now use it a a desk reference in debating with ex gay proponents and anti gay religious people. To date; I've never lost a debate, thanks to GAYCHRISTIAN101. I now happily live my life as a believer in Jesus, comfortable and content knowing God loves me as the gay man he created. Thanks Rick!
