Editorial Reviews

Review

“I have been working in the homosexual community for the past twenty years. The Complete Christian Guide to Understanding Homosexuality is an outstanding resource for the local church. It is a well-written and documented book for those who want to understand homosexuality as well as reach out with compassion to those who have same sex attraction. I will use this book often.”
―Dr. Jeff Winter, pastor, FaithMV Church of Martha's Vineyard



“The book that should be on every pastor's desk, every Christian worker and anyone at all who recognizes the need to be better informed about the most crucial cultural challenge facing the church today is The Complete Christian Guide to Understanding Homosexuality.”
―Bob Stith, National Strategist for Gender Issues, Southern Baptist Convention



“Joe Dallas has provided an incredible resource for the Body of Christ and for the culture at large by producing The Complete Christian Guide to Understanding Homosexuality. He brings together a thoroughly biblical understanding with a pastor’s heart. The accuracy and thoroughness of the work is significant, but Joe’s compassion for those who are struggling with same sex attraction is a powerful witness to the truth and grace of Christ.”
―Rick Schatz, President and CEO, pureHOPE

Format: Paperback
As a mother whose family has been affected by homosexuality, I've been looking forward to reading this book. It took me a little while to finish, not only because it's lengthy, but because it covers so many subjects. All in all I'd say Dallas, Heche and the other authors have provided the first one-stop "WalMart" for people wanting comprehensive information about homosexuality, especially from a Christian perspective. And it really is written that way. It stresses a high regard for scripture from cover to cover, and every theory or idea it promoted was backed Biblically.

You'll get a lot out of this book if you're someone who wants to better understand homosexuality, or if you're someone who wants to be in better shape to talk about this subject. All the bases are covered, and I mean all. It has chapters on gay marriage, witnessing to homosexuals, counseling homosexual men and women, gays in the military, gay school programs, dealing with homosexual sons or daughters, AIDS, hate crimes, gay theology and more. Joe Dallas and Nancy Heche wrote most of the chapters, but there are some good contributions from other writers as well.

For me, the most helpful chapters were the ones that teach the reader how to dialogue. There's one on Terms and Definitions, for example, and one on Refuting Pro Gay Theology, that are extremely useful if you want to talk or even argue with someone who holds a pro-gay viewpoint.(See Dallas' book The Gay Gospel?: How Pro-Gay Advocates Misread the Bible There are also more technical chapters written from either a psychological or philosophical perspective.

I especially liked the way the book is formatted.

Format: Paperback
Countless people are struggling in the church pews today. Our world is full of addictions, fears and psychological disorders. Divorce is rampant as is sexual infidelity. From all corners we are hounded by the siren call of worldly desires and sensual pleasures. What was deviant and beyond consideration three decades ago is considered standard fare today, and today's deviance would make previous generations shudder.

Enter homosexuality. While thirty years ago this sin was still a mystery for most, today it is trumpeted from the billboards all over the place. And slowly and steadily, the problem of homosexuality is being realized inside our churches today. It is becoming increasingly common for young people in Christian homes to struggle with same-sex desires. And many a pastor, bible teacher or other church leader is confronted with a respected church member admitting to a problem in this area and seeking help. With all the controversy and debate that surrounds the issue today, and with the assumed distance the Church enjoys from this issue, it should not be surprising that many feel unprepared to help those struggling with this contemporary problem.

"The Complete Christian Guide to Understanding Homosexuality: A Biblical and Compassionate Repsonse to Same-Sex Attraction" (Harvest House, 2010) looks to be an accessible and comprehensive resource that will equip church leaders to handle this all important issue. Editors Joe Dallas and Nancy Heche have personal experience dealing with this problem. Joe is a former homosexual who found a new life in Christ. He is a past president of Exodus International, a network of Christian ministries dedicated to equipping Churches to minister to homosexuals.

Dallas does it again in providing the conservative Christian church with a valid resource. Let me suggest you ignore the negative reviews on this book. They are written by folks who believe that folks are born gay so naturally they would have a negative reaction to this book.

Again, this book is an excellent resource and is exactly what it's title states, a complete christian guide to understanding homosexuality and it is about helping a loving church see how to biblically and compassionately respond to those who struggle with unwanted same gender attraction and those who self identify as a gay or lesbian person.

As a former lesbian and as one who now speaks to churches to help them in this subject matter I highly recommend this book. When a pastor or lay leader calls me up asking for help, this is the first book I recommend they purchase. It is powerful! Definitely God-inspired! Take care now and I hope this review helped.

When a book title says "the complete anything...." I am immediately both intrigued and skeptical. As a Christian Healthcare Professional having studied this topic for many years I bought this book with less then high hopes that the clear light of Biblical doctrine would shine brightly. After finishing with a sigh of relief I can honestly say, "Well done!" Let the Light of Scripture shine on as the love of Christ burns forever! Thank you for clearly and compassionately representing the Absolute Truth of God's Word to a world lost in a confused World of Relativism. Great is the Hope that rests in God's Grace for sinners such as us. Amen!
