Critical Conversations: A Christian Parents' Guide to Discussing Homosexuality with Teens by Tom Gilson
A Christian parents’ guide to beginning open and honest discussions about homosexuality
This is perhaps the most complicated and contentious issue Christians face in today’s culture. Most churches are poorly equipped to handle it; parents are even less prepared. The good news is that parents need not have pat answers ready before they dive into conversations with their teens and preteens on this difficult topic. Gilson helps parents by providing biblical answers to common questions.
Homosexuality is perhaps the most complicated and contentious issue Christians encounter in today's culture. Christian teens routinely hear assertions such as:
"It's about time gay people were allowed to get married."
"If you think homosexuality is wrong, you're a bigot."
"The Bible's ideas about homosexuality are outdated and irrelevant."
How can parents help young people deal with beliefs and perspectives that are mostly hostile to a biblical worldview? As both a parent and a campuss apoloigst, author Tom Gilson has wrestled with the isues and now shows parents how to confidently talk with teens. Critical Conversations will equip you to:

Parents don't have to feel overwhelmed and unprepared. Chritical Conversations will give you the confidence to make a critical difference in the lives of teens.
