A new book by Dr. Mark Yarhouse has just been published. The book is titled Homosexuality and the Christian: A Guide for Parents, Pastors, and Friends. It is a book for the general Christian audience and, in particular, those interested in the topic of homosexuality but perhaps not as familiar with the issues. In Homosexuality and the Christian, Dr. Yarhouse shifts the focus away from orientation toward identity, and then he uses that focus to inform how the church might respond to the challenges facing sexual minorities within the Christian community. He also provides chapters for parents and spouses who are responding to family members who experience same-sex attraction.
Here are a couple of endorsements:
“This is a must-read book for anyone who wants sound guidance and trustworthy information about homosexuality, including its relevance to Christians and the church.”
–Gary R. Collins, Distinguished Professor of Coaching and Leadership, Richmont Graduate University
“Homosexuality and the Christian is the best book I have seen for evangelicals who want an accessible book that provides accurate, research-based information.”
