In the midst of a raging culture war, Christians are increasingly being forced to defend what the Bible says about homosexuality. The arguments in favor of homosexuality are becoming more and more diverse and sophisticated, leaving Christians no choice but to study the issue further.
There have been some good books recently published that thoroughly address various issues surrounding homosexuality. Yet there is still a need for a concise booklet – ready for anyone who needs an introductory lesson on the issue. Homosexuality: A Biblical Discussion, by Wesley Walker, fills this void very well in my opinion.
I was pleasantly surprised by how much information Wesley was able to fit in this relatively small tract. In less than 23 small pages of text, the following questions are addressed:
- What does creation teach?
- What was the sin of Sodom?
- What about the “abomination” passages?
- What does Romans 1:24-27 teach?
- What does 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 teach?
- Did Jesus ever address homosexuality?
- Do strong urges make it okay?
- What does love require?
- Where do we go from here?
My only critique of this pamphlet is a nitpicky one. I noticed two or three quotes or allusions to scripture that did not have a specific passage reference. But this was probably intended, so that the text would be more smooth and conversational (as it is).
I recommend this to every church looking for a tract on the subject. Also, individual Christians would do well to consider picking up one or two of these. It can teach how to better respond to the various questions often asked about homosexuality. It can also be kept around for anyone who is legitimately seeking truth on about subject.
The booklet retails for $1.25. Wesley writes, “If a congregation is interested in ordering in bulk it drops down to $1. It is available on Amazon, but the best (cheapest) way for someone to order is directly through me (firstname.lastname@example.org).”
