A biblical view of homosexuality

DeYoung offers wise and readable apologetics here, providing his readers with both motive and model for how to think and talk about homosexuality and the Christian faith in a way that honors Christ and gives hope to a watching world. Against the sexual revolution and its high priests, DeYoung presents an alternative vision, the ancient wisdom of a Christian sexual ethic. This is the best book on this subject that I have read. Every Christian confronted with these issues, which means every Christian, should read this book.
What do you recommend? The first step in delegitimizing what the Bible says about homosexuality is to suggest that the Bible hardly says anything about homosexuality. As I mentioned in the introduction, in one sense this is true. The Bible is a big book, and the rightness or wrongness of homosexual practice is not at the center of it. We looked at most of them in part 1 of this book.

See a Problem?
Some suggest that Christians talk too much about something the Bible hardly addresses. But the Scriptures are clear and consistent on this issue.
The Bible defines marriage in Genesis as a union between one man and one woman. Jesus Christ upholds this definition of marriage in Matthew , as does the Apostle Paul in Ephesians Further to this, same-sex practice is specifically highlighted as sinful a number of times in Scripture. Further references are made in the New Testament. For example, in Romans , amid echoes to the Genesis creation account, both male and female same-sex practice are treated as sinful.
