Former Gay Activist Paves the Way to Peaceful Conversation Homosexuality and gay marriage stand among perhaps the greatest defining cultural battles of our age. There's no escaping the inevitable conversations--so how does a Christian respond with love and biblical truth without adding fuel to the fire? Drawing on nearly thirty years of counseling people struggling with homosexuality, former gay activist Joe Dallas takes readers through virtually every argument they are likely to hear in favor of normalizing homosexuality. He helps readers understand the views of LGBT people they may know and respond with clarity, confidence, and compassion. He shows the most effective ways to engage the subject on social media and in everyday encounters with guidelines for talking points, dialogue, approach, and tone, and even provides sample dialogue. Anyone who has been searching for ways to have productive, loving conversations surrounding this critical topic will find this incredible resource a must-have. "At one time or another every twenty-first-century Christian is likely to be confronted about his or her views on homosexuality. But how can we approach this challenging issue in a way that faithfully reflects Jesus's heart and mind? Joe Dallas answers that question in this clear and compelling guide for engaging others with both gentleness and biblical truth."--Jim Daly, president, Focus on the Family "I've often said no one understands the subject of same-sex sexuality better than my friend Joe Dallas. This book, his best yet, only confirms my conviction. I'm not speaking merely of Joe's formidable knowledge of truth, but also the wisdom of its application through crystal-clear and concise communication. In the wake of the June 2015 US Supreme Court's redefinition of marriage, Speaking of Homosexuality will equip you to engage a topic that is foundational to human civilization."--Hank Hanegraaff, president, the Christian Research Institute; host of the Bible Answer Man broadcast "Speaking of Homosexuality is one of the most clear and informative books on the subject. Dallas responds to the most common Revisionist arguments with clarity, but also genuine kindness. If you want one book to offer biblical and historical truth about homosexuality, but also how to lovingly put that truth into action, then you won't find a better book."--Sean McDowell, PhD, professor of Christian apologetics, Biola University; author, Same-Sex Marriage and Apologetics for a New Generation "In answer to the urgency of our world's current situation, Joe Dallas has now crafted a resourceful tool filled with biblical truth and insightful strategies. Speaking of Homosexuality is essential for every person in need of answers for themselves, a family member, or a friend struggling with same-sex attraction."--Joni Lamb, cofounder, Daystar Television Network "There is no question that one of the most difficult issues facing the church today is the subject of homosexuality. But God didn't leave us in the dark on the topic of human sexuality. He gave us clear directives for this part of our lives so that we might experience the abundant life He promises. But speaking those guidelines to a confused church and a hardening culture isn't easy. No one does it better than Joe Dallas. Like no other voice I hear, Joe both lives and ministers with that continual balance of truth and love on this most contentious topic. In a day where Christians are growing more silent, we need a book like this to teach us how to winsomely engage while never retreating from God's protective Truth. This is a must-read for the church today!"--Janet Parshall, nationally syndicated talk show host

If homosexuality or transgenderism has touched your family, you’re on a painful and challenging journey. But you’re not alone.

He endured so much, yet he obeyed God and fulfilled God’s purposes for his life. This Bible study, by one who has lived through this journey, will help you make the best of your circumstances as you reclaim and rebuild your relationships with sexually broken family members or friends.

Anyone who has been affected by a loved one's sexual brokenness and desires a healing pathway will greatly benefit from this invaluable book. --James E. Phelan, LCSW, Psy.D, psychotherapist and author of The Addictions Recovery Workbook: 101 Practical Exercises for Individuals and Groups When Christian families hear the announcement "I'm gay" from a loved one, they need immediate direction, reassurance, comfort, and godly wisdom. Nobody is more qualified to provide all four than Carol Wagstaff, who's been serving such families for decades now. --Joe Dallas, speaker; author of When Homosexuality Hits Home, The Gay Gospel: How Pro-Gay Advocates Misread the Bible, Speaking of Homosexuality: Discussing the Issues with Kindness and Clarity, and four other books on sexual brokenness; co-editor of The Complete Christian Guide to Homosexuality In this interactive book, Carol helps readers walk alongside [Nehemiah] in order to see ways to cope with--and even conquer--some of life's most heartbreaking trials, particularly the trials family members and friends face with a homosexual or transgender loved one. --Denise Shick, executive director, Living Stones Ministries and Help 4 Families; author of My Daddy's Secret and Understanding Gender Confusion: A Faith-Based Perspective If sexual brokenness--homosexuality or transgenderism--has touched your family, you're on a painful and challenging journey. But you're not alone. Although Nehemiah lived more than two thousand years ago, he would have understood what you're going through. He dealt with brokenness, weakness, and powerlessness in the face of his circumstances. His heart was broken over unfulfilled dreams. He is a role model for the challenges you face because he endured so much, yet he obeyed God and fulfilled God's purposes for his life. His life reminds us that we often do not choose the circumstances God allows in our lives, but we can learn to make the best of them. As you study portions of Nehemiah and the armor of God, you'll learn to apply principles from these passages to help you reclaim and rebuild your relationship with a sexually broken family member or friend.

Londons größter lebender Chronist über die »gay history« seiner Stadt Das römische Londinium war übersät mit »Wolfshöhlen«, Bordellen und heißen Bädern, in denen es hoch herging. Homosexualität galt als bewundernswert. Bis Kaiser Konstantin die Macht übernahm und mit seinen Mönchen und Missionaren für Ordnung sorgte. Zeiten der Toleranz wechselten mit Zeiten der Ächtung und Verfolgung. Heute gehört »queer London« zur britischen Hauptstadt wie Tower und Big Ben. Londons homosexuelle Szene ist die größte in Europa und eine der größten weltweit. Peter Ackroyd zeigt uns, wie seine Stadt sich diesen Platz erkämpft hat. Er zelebriert die Vielfältigkeit und Energie der Community, zeigt aber auch die Gefährdungen, denen sie zu allen Zeiten ausgesetzt war. »Ein absolut einzigartiges Leseerlebnis.« The Independent

"Ein wenig Leben" handelt von der lebenslangen Freundschaft zwischen vier Männern in New York, die sich am College kennengelernt haben. Jude St. Francis, brillant und enigmatisch, ist die charismatische Figur im Zentrum der Gruppe – ein aufopfernd liebender und zugleich innerlich zerbrochener Mensch. Immer tiefer werden die Freunde in Judes dunkle, schmerzhafte Welt hineingesogen, deren Ungeheuer nach und nach hervortreten. "Ein wenig Leben" ist ein rauschhaftes, mit kaum fasslicher Dringlichkeit erzähltes Epos über Trauma, menschliche Güte und Freundschaft als wahre Liebe. Es begibt sich an die dunkelsten Orte, an die Literatur sich wagen kann, und bricht dabei immer wieder zum hellen Licht durch.
