From back cover: Can Christians believe in straight behavior without being narrow-minded? Too often, Thomas Schmidt writes, the charged battle over homosexuality and lesbianism generates slogans and accusations. These obscure the struggling persons at the center of the argument-it causes those who oppose homosexual behavior to "lose sight of individual struggles, pain and faces." Writing with both an evangelical Christian perspective and profound empathy, Schmidt addresses all the main points of the current debate: What the bible really says (and means) about homosexuality, The health effects of homosexual behavior, Whether or not people are born with homosexual orientations, The cogency of recent progay reconstructions of history, including John Boswell's. With arguments thoroughly researched and up to date, Straight & Narrow? takes its its place as the most comprehensive, persuasive and readable Christian book now available on the subject.
