Is it ok to be gay and Christian? Does the Bible really say that homosexuality is wrong? Is sexual orientation fundamental to identity?

Author and speaker Sam Allberry has updated his best-selling book to acknowledge the cultural changes in the past decade and has made it more accessible to people who do not follow Jesus. It has also been expanded so that it looks, first and foremost, at the extraordinary claims and promises of Jesus, before examining his teaching on sexuality and the costs and rewards of following him.

As a believer who experiences same-sex attraction, Sam Allberry has written sensitively on this topic. He challenges the current culture narrative and shows that the gospel is good news for everyone, whatever their sexual orientation. In the introduction, he says, "Above all I want people to how good Jesus is, in this area of life and in every area of life."

This book is designed to help both Christians and non-Christians struggling with the Bible's teaching on this issue, whether they experience same-sex attraction themselves or not.

Includes a foreword by Tim Keller and answers to questions such as...

- does Jesus ever mention same-sex relationships?
- aren't people just born this way?
- what should I do if a Christian comes out to me?
- surely, isn't a same-sex partnership ok if it's committed and faithful?
- is it sinful to experience same-sex attraction?
- isn't the Christian view of sexuality harmful?
- aren't we just picking and choosing which Old Testament laws apply?
- can't Christians just agree to differ on this?
- should Christians attend gay weddings?
