Living in a Gray World A Christian Teen's Guide to Understanding Homosexuality by Preston SprinkleIn today's world, the topic of homosexuality seems to be part of everyday conversation in the media, in politics, and even inside churches, with pressure to accept one view or the other. And if you're a Christian teen, there seems to be few easy answers to the issues you regularly encounter, such as: Can you be friends with someone who is gay? What if your sister is a lesbian, or you sometimes wonder if you might be as well? Does the Bible really say homosexuality is wrong? What does God want us to do and say? Preston Sprinkle has encountered these same questions, and as a theologian and a college professor he has dealt with these issues firsthand. Through honest conversation, real-life examples, and biblical research, Sprinkle unpacks what we can know to be true, and how Scripture's overall message to us today allows us to move forward and find answers that align with God's intent.
! Living in a Gray World approaches the issue of homosexuality biblically and yet with tremendous compassion and care. I wish every teen would read it. Sean McDowell professor at Biola University and the author of fifteen books, including Ethix: Being Bold in a Whatever World This book is hands-down the best resource I've seen on this subject for Christian young people---biblical, grace-soaked, and incredibly practical. So many Christian teens (and their parents!) are confused about, scared of, and yet immersed in a culture where formerly black-and-white lines about sexuality have blurred gray. But rather than fear, judge, or ignore this shift, Preston guides us through Scripture to not only help us see God's best plan for sexuality but, perhaps even more importantly, remind us that we're talking about individual people with unique stories---not just discussing an 'issue.
! Jessie Minassian Resident big sis at LifeLoveandGod.com, and author of Crushed, Unashamed, and Backwards Beauty Preston Sprinkle has given teenagers a light for the dark path of knowing how to think about homosexuality. He lovingly and winsomely explains what the Bible says about the LGTBQ community. This conversational style book is a needed and helpful resource for the church.
