Editorial Reviews

Review

"Dr. Brown has written the most important book on what I have come to believe is the top social issue and among the most important spiritual issues of our time."  Eric Holmberg, The Apologetics Group


"A Queer Thing happened to America is a very, very important book. It is no exaggeration to say it should be required reading for everyone who cares about the future of their family and of our civilization." 
J Davies, Anglican Mainstream

"All in all, this book is a devastating rebuttal of the homosexualist agenda. . . . It is one long volume allowing the other side to speak for itself, condemning itself in the process."  Bill Muehlenberg, Culture Watch

"I have read Dr. Michael Brown's book and find it both persuasive and alarming.  It is crucial to wake up before our liberty is lost. Dr. Brown's book is a clarion call." Daniel Juster, Th. D., Director, Tikkun International

From the Inside Flap

A Queer Thing Happened to America chronicles the dramatic cultural changes that have taken place in our country in relation to homosexuality and pointedly asks the question: Are we heading in the right direction? Written in a lively and compelling style and at the same time backed with massive research, this forthright and yet compassionate study evaluates the extraordinary impact gay activism has had on our society, from elementary schools to college campuses, from the press to the courts, and from the world of business to the world of religion.

Forty years ago, most Americans said they didn't know anyone who was gay or lesbian and claimed to know little or nothing about homosexuality. Today, there's hardly a sitcom without a prominent gay character, gay-themed movies have won Oscars, the media celebrates the marriages of same-sex celebrities, elementary school textbooks indoctrinate children with gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender ideology, many churches and synagogues now ordain gay clergy - and one of our elected officials is a man with cleavage who often wears a dress and high heels to work. In the courts, religious rights are consistently losing the battle to gay rights, while university students have been expelled from their programs for refusing to endorse homosexual practice.

We have come to a point in our history in which it is common for the mainstream media to portray someone as intolerant and bigoted if they fail to affirm (or even celebrate) homosexuality and transgenderism, and we now find ourselves with little opportunity for constructive, honest dialogue or even the right to put forth a differing opinion. That's why the publishing world was afraid to touch this book, and that's why A Queer Thing Happened to America could be the most controversial book of the decade.

More About the Author

I'm a Jewish believer in Jesus (I came to faith in 1971 as a heroin-shooting, LSD-using, hippie rock drummer) with a Ph.D. in Near Eastern Languages and Literatures from NYU. I've written 25 books, ranging from wake-up calls to the Church of America to detailed scholarly monographs on biblical subjects, along with numerous volumes on answering Jewish objections to Jesus. I've had the joy of speaking throughout America and in more than 25 countries worldwide, and I host the nationally syndicated, daily talk radio show The Line of Fire. I'm founder and president of FIRE School of Ministry in Concord, NC and also serve as a visiting or adjunct professor at a number of different seminaries. My wife, Nancy, and I have been married for 38 years and have two wonderful daughters and four incredible grandchildren. My heart beats to see a gospel-based moral and cultural revolution -- in my lifetime -- and I'm praying that you will be part of this Jesus Revolution too.

This book will open eyes .
not a spell chick
It is quite obvious that Dr. Brown has done his homework on the subject, the topics covered are very well researched and there are extensive footnotes.
Jacob
I am grateful to Dr. Brown for this book, and his genuine heart to reach the homosexual community with the love of God.

I've known Dr. Brown personally for over a decade, and I can say that when he began to receive inspiration to begin this book, I knew what manner of a work it would be.

I can say that there is no hatred or bigotry in his heart towards the gay community, only that true love and tender concern that God Himself has for them. Accusations that seek to demonize or attack his character along these lines are simply unfounded. Anyone who knows the man himself will testify to that reality, including the leaders in the gay rights movement who have met personally with him.

Accusations against his scholarship and the quality of his preparatory research are equally ridiculous. He has sought for many years (just as he always has in writing), to cover every possible base, prayerfully, biblically, and in all manners of research relevant to his writing.

This book is not like his other books in style, for it addresses a wider audience than usual. But it is a much needed, rare prophetic cry, undergirded by intensive research (just have a look at the end notes!), and I am thankful beyond words for the man and his message.

If you are a believer, read the book, be informed and awakened, and give yourself to tearful prayers on behalf of the homosexual community, and the Church that has mostly failed to be a true voice to them in this late hour.

If you are gay, I encourage you to get a hold of this very unique book. You will not find bitter rants, republican jargon, or hateful speech (though some will call it that). Instead you will find, if you read it with a real hunger for truth, a well-written, loving, delivery of the truth regarding homosexuality and it's affect upon the human race, along with a greater understanding of the God of the gospel, who so longs to deliver us from the grip of sin and to bring us into His glorious Light.

What an incredible book and resource! I would encourage ANYONE, no matter where one's beliefs fall, to read this book. Dr. Brown has definately done extensive research. There are over 80 pages of endnotes and the reader is encouraged to go to the website for a more extensive index and full bibliography! Each chapter has numerous examples, that are factual, real life examples and stories. He never speaks one word of hate for anyone or group. In fact, as I read the book, I felt an urgency to stand for truth and righteousness, but to stand in complete love. Dr. Brown has such a gift for speaking and standing for what is right, but having such compassion for each individual. This book is a testament to that for sure. My interpretation of the book is threefold...a comprehensive guide(whether through the numerous examples, first hand stories, or other publications), a call to become proactive and stand for truth(in our life, our children's lives, and our community), and to do ALL things in love and compassion. I am so thankful Dr. Brown wrote this book. And I will be passing it around to my friends and family!

I have quickly read the first few pages of each chapter and scanned the references to get the flavour of the book. Without doubt it was written by someone with a compassionate heart and who puts truth ahead of political correctness. The references to sources and activities beyond the borders of the U.S.A. attest to its relevance and scholarly attributes. I am looking forward to what a high school math teacher used to tell us to do: Read, mark, learn and inwardly digest. I know it will be a great read and educational exercise.

As a former homosexual who was a "gay" activists for a decade in the 80's and early '90's I know that what Dr Michael Brown is saying is correct & well researched. In fact I could add more evidence to substantiate the TRUTH that Brown has reported.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Michael Brown does a great job pulling out God's heart on the matter of homosexuality. It is done in a non-judgmental, factual way, that brings to light what the Bible actually says. This book does NOT condemn homosexual individuals, rather it address the issue of sin and how God desires people to be free from sin (what ever it may be).

This book is NOT a "Hate Speech" about how terrible gay people are. But simply points out what the Bible says in a non-discriminatory way. Many people just don't know what the Bible really says about sex. He uses the whole Bible in it's context to relay the message in the Bible.

Format: Hardcover
Very informative, detailed analysis on the subject matter. No bigotry, just an honest account of gay history and the consequences of buying into a subversive mindset. The author used verifiable sources and shows genuine compassion without waivering from the unvarnished truth. Extreme gays and heterophobes may have a problem with it; however, anyone else with an ability to think and reason about the ramifications for society should a gay-centric agenda come to fruition will identify with what's said in this book. Articulate, factual and fascinating.

Don't let people deceive you, this is not an anti homosexual hate filled book. This is a well researched, well written book that compassionately analyzes the problems that our culture is facing due to the rise of the homosexual agenda. Whether you agree or not, this book is a must read for every American. Don't let people deceive you about the content of this book...read it for yourself!
