At first I felt like this book was stretching what i knew as the truth of the Scripture, but as i started to open my mind and my heart i discovered what the purpose of the book was. it was to free gays and lesbians of the notion that the Bible and the church hates them. that there are other ways to intrepret the meaning behind the words. this was the first book pro-gay book i've read and it really did help me begin my journey of self discovery. i don't know if i am ready to step back into church as an openly gay christian, but one day i hope to. back by Scripture and by the love of God. the next book i hope to read is "Stranger at the Gate" by Mel White.

Format: Paperback
I find John McNeill's The Church and the homosexual a clear example of what I call "Brave Theology". Mc Neill does not write an unfounded claim, but establishes his arguments on grounds of a hard work of scholarship. To support his views, he appeals to bible theology, philosophy and human sciences. Thus, he forces moral theologist to take his book into account, whether they like it or not. I am firmly convinced that in the future John Mc Neill will be remembered as a pioneer who dared challenge The Church's unsuitable and unacceptable view on homosexuality.

Format: Paperback
The minister at my local southern baptist church told me about this book, when my husband of 20 years began having an identity crisis problem. I found the information in this book to be helpful in dealing with his feelings of homosexuality. We did infact split in the end but the split was much cleaner than it might have been had I not found this book. There is an arizona resource helpline that also assisted me and recommended this book, they can be reached at 1-480-987-3979 or 1-480-831-6200, at the later number ask for Vicki.

I am an ordained minsiter of the Gospel, who is gay. This book is superbly written and researched. It was a great help for my acceptance process. A must have for minsiters who work with the gay community. God Bless John J. McNeill.

This book is good for any bible studies on the subject. Seems to be historicaly correct on content. Explanations benefit all who are interested in being truthful and just.
