A Place to Begin,
This review is from: Homosexuality and the Bible: Two Views (Paperback)
In the heated rhetoric of denominational debates over the Bible, ordination and homosexuality, this book helpfully provides a basic yet adequate introduction to the primary interpretative conclusions on the main biblical texts with two major alternative viewpoints where the authors present their arguments and then interact with each other's position. Robert Gagnon has written a much more thorough study of pertinent Biblical and historical materials elsewhere, but this book provides a simple summary of his conclusions for those beginning to study these somewhat complex arguments. Via helpfully summarizes some of the arguments and conclusions of those seeking change in the way in which Christians have traditionally interpreted and applied the biblical texts.
