527371: The Gospel and Sexual Orientation The Gospel and Sexual Orientation
By Michael Lefebvre

In 2010, a committee was appointed by the Synod of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of North America to study "one of the most important cultural issues of our day." The Synod saw the need to provide guidance for congregations on the subject of homosexual orientation, not simply about the scriptural, scientific and moral issues, but also guidance for care and counsel to someone who believes their identity is homosexual. The result is a rare paper worthy of a book and worthy of a readership beyond a small church denomination and even beyond the realm of conservative presbyterianism. The work not only interacts with contemporary scholarship and holds the Scriptures in high esteem, but also presents a model of how to care for and walk alongside a person who is struggling with his or her sexual identity. In a demonstration of overwhelming acceptance for this compassionate scholarship, the paper was received and adopted unanimously in the RP Synod of 2011. We hope you will read this book, test it against what the Bible says, encourage discussion in your local church and share it with others.

By Robert A.J. Gagnon

4257763: Welcoming But Not Affirming: An Evangelical Response to Homosexuality Welcoming But Not Affirming: An Evangelical Response to Homosexuality
By Stanley Grenz

In this carefully reasoned and thoroughly researched analysis, Grenz asks: Are same-sex relationships a viable, God-given way of giving expression to our sexuality? He reviews scientific research, the history of Christian teaching on homosexuality, the issue of biblical authority today, and the practical issues the church now faces, such as the blessing of same-sex unions, the ordination of homosexuals, and the church's public stance on gay right issues. Ultimately he proposes that it is possible for Christian communities to welcome homosexuals without affirming same-sex unions.

427360: Messy Grace: How a Pastor with Gay Parents Learned to Love Others Without Sacrificing Conviction Messy Grace: How a Pastor with Gay Parents Learned to Love Others Without Sacrificing Conviction
By Caleb Kaltenbach

Raised by LGBT parents, Caleb Kaltenbach was very familiar with some Christians attitudes toward gays, based on the hatred and bitterness often directed toward his family. It's not surprising then that as he grew into a young man he wanted very little to do with those who claimed to follow Jesus. As a student, Caleb started attending a Bible study and youth group with the purpose of learning more about Christianity in order to attack it. However, the more he learned about Jesus, the more he wanted to know, which ultimately lead to his conversion. Ironically, Caleb was a Christian teen "coming out" to his gay parents.

In Messy Grace, Caleb chronicles his journey of showing love to his family and the LGBT community, while believing the truths proclaimed in the Bible. He also gives hard-earned advice to Christians seeking to understand the tension of real relationships lived in the balance of love and truth. Includes Reflection and Discussion Questions for individual or group study.
