The Kindle Edition has no links in its Table of Contents, and no index.

This is worth using to study those major commands that Jesus gave us. (for those that want to worry about homosexuality, then skip those few verses.

I was actually looking for the Episcopal Bible, when I stumbled upon this Bible study guide for GLBTQQIA and their allies.

The study bible whilst not perfect (no translation is) is a very credible attempt at a secular translation and has some extremely valuable viewpoints to it. The study notes are written not based on traditional assumptions but on the latest secular knowledge. As our available texts have grown from new testament times, so have our understanding of expressions etc. (For example the laws pertaining to divorce can be understood in a better context now).Unfortunately some will focus on homosexuality but if they choose to focus on minor themes that are barely mentioned thats their choice. However, Jesus gives us many commands including love your neighbour, turn the other cheek, look after the poor and the sick, do not lie and of course do not judge and these can be studied across this and other translations because, as they are repeated time and time again...these ARE the important themes in gods word to us. This is worth using to study those major commands that Jesus gave us. (for those that want to worry about homosexuality, then skip those few verses. Jesus doesnt mention it anyway so this is a very useful study tool. Jesus does say of course whatever you do to the sick, the poor etc, you do to him... and this is a great tool for understanding the cultural co text of what he said). highly recommended and remember..anything you dont like, you can check for yourself (the mark of a good study guide rather than dogma)

The good news is that this book gives us insight into how we have been socialized to embrace biblical translations which have fallen out of lockstep with contemporary sensibilities. Many of the claims which Christians make against certain groups have no biblical basis.

I shouldn't have been surprised, but it was eye opening to learn about how certain groups influence biblical content. They shape the Bible that we see, and, by extension, the messages that we get from it. That is why gay people have so much trouble in church. That would have been good as a separate book.

The Kindle Edition has no links in its Table of Contents, and no index. It makes navigating difficult. The books of the New Testament are cluttered together, and lack introdutions. Some passages are so heavily laden with contemporary text that they are hard to recognize.

This book could have stopped at chapter two.

Contains a lot of helpful information on word meanings especially the LGBT "clobber" passages however the layout and general presentation leaves a lot to be desired.

It's twisting the truth into a lie. It's really that simple. Sexual Immorality comes in many forms. One of those forms is homosexuality. It's called sin. They love the darkness more than the light. They call what is good bad and what is bad good. The changing of the Holy word of God is simply wrong. This will offend those who choose to remain in the darkness and refuse to respond to the gospel message of repentance. It's disgusting and an abomination in the sight of God. Creation shows us the facts that only a man and a woman can reproduce. The Paul states ....the husband of one wife. God created Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve. Sin is sin. You know it! I know it! And most importantly, God knows it!

Format: Paperback
I am intimately familiar with the TNIV version and its many strengths and flaws, but I must say this perspective receives no support from the text. The TNIV, although easier to understand and more poetic, is an inferior translation to the NASB as proven by intense scholarship and comparisons between the earliest preserved records of the textus receptus and the Talmud. Against the Dead Sea scrolls, the NASB stands as the most accurate text.

That said, the TNIV is still highly reliable on most scriptural cases, although the final authority would go the the NASB. The TNIV would never support a homosexual-friendly reading of the Bible. It is only severe contextualization on the part of the authors that makes it somewhat palatable. To put it bluntly, they're painting over the brick of scripturally incoherent theology with a sugary posthumous shellacking of icing and begging you to take a bite.

Expect stories of how David and Jonathan were lovers (A testably false claim as the Bible goes to great length to describe their relationship as foster-brothers rather than lovers. It's only a healthy dose of implications and inferences coming from the 21st century applied to this story that could ever turn it into a gay-friendly tale.

Also, expect the argument that explicit verses condemning homosexuality such as Leviticus 18:22 as simply dealing with neighboring nations who used underage boys as sexual oracles in temples. Expect the same for Paul's upholding of this law in his letter to Corinth.

Failing to promote this understanding, the authors may attempt to circumvent by claiming this law is one of the many discarded when God declares all of the unclean clean, however this is wrong. God forbode homosexuality to all humans, not just the Isralites.
