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.

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.
This book is a collection of pro-life blogs by Joseph Parker, AFA director of intercession and outreach, which were originally posted on The Stand. In it, he challenges the church, especially its leaders, to demonstrate conviction and courage, to take a public stand to protect the lives of the unborn.
