Can You Be Gay and Christian?: Responding With Love and Truth to Questions About Homosexuality
The question of how the church deals with homosexuality has become the great moral and spiritual issue of this generation.
How do we respond to gay people who tell us how much they love the Lord and experience God’s power? How do we answer them when they say that the greatest law is the law of love, and that love requires us to embrace them as they are? What do we do with the argument that the Old Testament laws (such as the prohibition against homosexuality and the dietary laws) no longer apply?
Can You Be Gay and Christian? will provide solid biblical answers, clearly written and based on sound scholarship, in a compassionate way that causes the reader to wrestle with the issues and discover the biblical truth. The book also provides practical guidelines for ministry and shows readers how they can resist the gay agenda while reaching out to their gay friends and family.
In this timely book, award-winning author Kevin DeYoung challenges each of us—the skeptic and the seeker, the certain and the confused—to take a humble look at God’s Word regarding the issue of homosexuality.
After examining key biblical passages in both the Old and New Testaments and the Bible’s overarching teaching regarding sexuality, DeYoung responds to popular objections raised by Christians and non-Christians alike, making this an indispensable resource for thinking through one of the most pressing issues of our day.

A Transgender’s Faith tells the remarkable true story of Walt Heyer, a man plagued since childhood with thoughts and feelings that he should have been a girl. The torment intensifies as he grows up, marries and starts a family, and builds an amazing career. Desperate, he secretly seeks out a radical treatment that promises relief, but also could risk the destruction of all he holds dear.
With the same resolute determination that propelled him to success in his career, he relentlessly pursues healing and wholeness, not giving up until he knows without a doubt he is safe in the arms of Jesus.
A Transgender’s Faith courageously challenges political correctness and the gender change activists who say “Transgenders are born that way” by daring to share the powerful testimony of one man’s faith and restoration to his birth gender.
Transgender to Transformed: A Story of Transition That Will Truly Set You Free
Today's culture is drowning in the lies of the "born that way" ideology that claims desires and feelings cannot change or be overridden. Transgender to Transformed chronicles the story of Laura Perry, a former transgender, who believed those same lies and was determined to never return to being female no matter what it cost her. And cost her, it did.
Like many who feel trapped in the wrong body, Laura "transitioned" to the opposite sex through irreversible surgeries, hormone injections, and a legal name change. Yet, despite her initial elation at living as a male, her new identity failed to bring her the peace and fulfillment she longed for. Realizing that she was living a lie, what was promised to be freedom had instead become a prison cell.
Filled with raw, honest emotion, Laura's story sheds light on the common deceptions about the transgender lifestyle, and exposes the frustration and hopelessness of living with a self-created identity that is in opposition to who God created. It bravely leads the way out of the darkness and into the light of freedom that transgenders may desperately be seeking.
