Plausibility Problem, The: The Church and Same-Sex Attraction
11 in stock
It's all very well to say that the Bible is clear when it talks about homosexuality. But is it realistic? Isn't it unrealistic and unfair to those who struggle with this issue? Doesn't it condemn them to loneliness, a lack of fulfilment and the loss of basic human satisfactions like sex and marriage?
Ed Shaw experiences same-sex attraction, and yet he is committed to what the Bible says and what the church has always taught about marriage and sex. In this honest book, he shares his pain in dealing with these issues - but, at the same time, shows us that obedience to Jesus is ultimately the only way to experience life to the full.
"Ed Shaw writes with the insight of a pastor, the boldness of a prophet, the integrity of a true disciple, and the warmth of a friend. This is a hugely important book with a vital message for the whole church."?
