Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Dr A. Nyland is an ancient language scholar and lexicographer who served as faculty at the University of New England, Australia. Dr Nyland is the author/translator of the world's first Gay Study Bible, "Study New Testament For Lesbians, Gays, Bi, And Transgender With Extensive Notes On Greek Word Meaning And Context." There are many books for gay and lesbian Christians which attempt to explain away the anti-gay passages of the Bible. However, there are no anti-gay passages in the Bible! The facts are that the Bible in the original languages does not speak against gay or lesbian people at all. It is only in English mistranslation that this appears to be the case. These books, as otherwise useful as they are, base their theories on English translations of the Bible. This book is an essential guide for gay and lesbian Christians as it sets out what the Bible actually says in the original languages.

This slim volume states its basic thesis in its title and then takes approximately seventy-five pages to lay out its arguments. It's concise, cleanly written, and easy-to-read; for those embarking on a study of this issue for the first time this book makes an excellent place to start, along with Fr Daniel Helminiak's WHAT THE BIBLE REALLY SAYS ABOUT HOMOSEXUALITY. The two together are likely to whet the appetite of amateur scholars for more in-depth writings on this subject.

My only complaint, and it's one I seem to be making a lot lately, is the sloppy editing. Ann Nyland is an Australian, and a self-described "grammar pedant," but one could be forgiven for thinking that English was not her first language. This is surely not the fault of the author, but publishing houses really need to tell their editorial staffs to actually PROOFREAD what they work on instead of relying on Spell Check.

the other review for this book exemplifes the exact reason a book like this is useful. your reccomendation to see a translated text of the bible is the ignorance this book is trying to complicate. maybe you should learn to think for yourself before spewing the hatred you have been taught. read this for an interesting critique on language, translation, and religion

The reasoning in this book gets absurd quickly. I noticed frequently that the main logical point doesn't ever really get made in each section. Her logic is unclear and unfinished, constantly. In fact, it's so undeveloped that, while enough Bible is used, often I would think the reasonable reader must be left to think, in each of the instances, that the Bible is anti-"Gay", anti-homosexuality. The author is quite brief is every section with her comments or explanations. And maybe there is some code language used that deceptively already makes the homosexual reader feel good in some prior false logic system.... who knows... it's just weird.

The author is said to know Classical Greek. But though it is similar and close to Koine Greek, Koine Greek (New Testament Greek) are very different for some words. And the word for homosexual is certainly one of them. Greek was a language in transition in the time of the New Testament. The author should know this. This leads me to conclude she is actively deceiving.

The author drastically misquotes Leviticus 20:13 in one or more sections. She says "ritually unclean". Astounding difference to the lengthy omission of the second half of the verse.
Lev.20:13 in the NASB:
"If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltiness is upon them."

And even though the author has a massive misunderstanding of the Law and Jesus' fulfilling work between the Old and New Covenants, she equates the punishment of being put to death in verse 13 with other amoral transgressions having no punishment. The gall. ...She must be either too ignorant to write anything about the Bible, or she is a deceiver, a false teacher.
