I just finished reading “God vs. Gay” by Jay Michaelson and I can’t recommend it highly enough. Jay lays out the book brilliantly by looking at the arguments for and against homosexual and lesbian references in the bible. Unlike so many standing on the pulpit preaching the sins of homosexuality, Jay looks at the context for the verses in question as well as faults in the original translations from Hebrew in a very practical manner. The material is welcoming in its approach and the information is laid out very clearly.
Please do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of this book if this topic is something that has caused you spiritual pain in the past.
