Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"More than ever, Christians are challenged to articulate and defend the Bible's position on homosexuality. In The Gay Gospel? Joe Dallas--one of Christianity's most able and articulate spokesman on human sexuality--codifies the arguments and arms us with clear, concise and convincing answers. This resource is both compelling and compassionate."
-Hank Hanegraaff, president of the Christian Research Institute and host of the Bible answer Man broadcast

"The Gay Gospel?" is must reading for all who sincerely seek the cleanest explanation yet for the Christian attitude toward homosexuality. I pray that this work will have the impact on all segments of our society that it deserves."
-D. James Kennedy, PhD , Coral Ridge Ministries

"To be caught in the trap of homosexuality is difficult enough, but to be held captive in a strong delusion of a false gospel requires the strong arm of truth. Writing the truth in love, Joe Dallas reveals how to set the captives free."
-Janet Parshall, Nationally syndicated radio host

More About the Author

I'm a Christian author, husband and father of two, married to my lovely wife Renee since 1987. We fellowship at Newport Mesa Church in Orange County, CA, and I run a ministry in Tustin, CA, called Genesis Counseling. Most of my writing has focused on sexual issues from a conservative Christian perspective, and since 1987, I've been honored to work with men who want to resolve conflicts between their sexual behavior and their relationship with Christ.

I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to understand this subject better.

As someone who has friends and relatives who are gay, I was concerned about what "Christians" say about homosexuality. So I read the Bible through, cover to cover. To me it was very clear, and repeated often, that the Bible considers homosexual activity a sin. This only increased my concern for my loved ones' life choices.

Next, I discussed this with my pro-gay minister, and asked him to show me in the Bible where homosexuality is not condemned. He gave me four books to read on the subject. The authors were impressive (but biased) and the theology and writing creative. The writers claimed that the Bible was repeatedly misinterpreted, or just plain wrong.

I wasn't convinced so I ordered The Gay Gospel and it helped me understand homosexuals better, and confirmed my own research that according to the Bible homosexuality is a sin -- no worse or better than others we struggle with -- and we need to help those struggling with this sin, or any other sin, as we are able.

Format: Paperback
Joe Dallas is to be commended for writing a fine book on such a thorny issue as homosexuality in the church. He does not lower himself to the level of name-calling, stereotyping, or denigrating homosexuals or the proponents of their theology. Having come from the Gay Christian community himself, he is thoroughly knowledgeable in their arguments, rationale, and the mistreatement they have endured. He evaluates their reasoning from a sympathetic and balanced tone, yet argues firmly and without apology against them. Much of the book is set forth in an argument and response format, with brief dialogues following each chapter to present how a hypothetical discussion might go.

The most important thing about the book and Dallas' approach is that he holds unswervingly to the Bible as the divine standard by which all our actions are to be held to account. He describes his own inner struggles as he attempted to reconcile his homosexual desires with his Christian faith, and how he ultimately came to the conclusion that he was living in contradiction to God's desires for him.

An important point that is brought up in the book is whether a person is believing what they believe because it is what makes them comfortable, or do they believe it because it's the truth (which often makes us uncomfortable). He steers the reader away from emotionally based and subjective argumentation, and locates the debate on the sure foundation of Scripture, our objective standard. He shows how pro-gay theologians have misread the Scriptures, and does an excellent job of dismantling their arguments. Yet he does so without any rancor or ill-will, and treats their contentions fairly. I found very little to quibble with in terms of his handling of Scripture and responding to the pro-gay arguments.

Format: Paperback
Joe Dallas is a good spokesperson for this topic as a former member of the gay Christian movement and staff member of a gay church. He systematically builds his case against the notion of pro-gay theology, but he does it with gentleness and love, and he encourages his readers to use the same tact.

While readily admitting that too many so-called Christians bash homosexuals, he does not give homosexuals a free pass just because they have been victims. He continually walks a fine line of balancing truth in love, and his civil tone allows him to present a good conclusion.

Dallas lists all the pro-gay lines he used to use, but uses Scripture, science, and other resources to refute them.

Joe Dallas has nailed this topic on the head!
It is very well written, perfect for anyone to understand.
He himself comes out of the gay lifestyle and the gay church.
No one brainwashed him...the Holy Spirit guided him to holiness.
He expertly displays both sides of this issue with grace and truth.
I recommend this book for all pastors and church leaders as a tool to equipping themselves for the challenges of this day and age.

I purchased this book because I was interested in learning more about the theology used to support the gay rights movement in the church. I found this work to be both well written and informative showing not only the history of the movement in the church (as well as arguments being made there) but also it offered a peek inside of the history of gay rights in America in general. I'm glad I made the purchase. His discussions are calm and well documented allowing me to further my inquiry into the subject.

I bought the original version of this book some years ago. It was a good tool to deal with Gay Theology then & it's even better now. I also have deep respect for Joe Dallas not just because of his books, but because I had the opportunity to meet him at a "Love Won Out" conference some years ago.

Dallas does an excellent job explaining myths about homosexuality and why the lifestyle does not match up with the word of God.

Love reading this book. I'm half way through and it's full of very thorough ideas that are aware, articulate, and up to date with the times. So glad Joe Dallas took the time to teach us, even if in small measure, the knowledge of what he knows so well, from the inside out. Completely happy with this purchase!
