It is almost inevitable that a day will come when an invitation of this nature will drop on your doormat.

The two distinctive features we will analyse are firstly the broadness of queer theology and its unity of purpose and secondly, its aim of blurring boundaries in the areas of sex and gender.
This is a convincing and well-written book on why the orthodox reading of the Bible on sex and relationships is right. It's highly readable and is written with real clarity and grace - De Young doesn't come across as if he has an axe to grind – just a genuine desire for people to hold to the truth.
This book is aimed at helping same-sex attracted believers to hold on to a biblical, orthodox view of sexuality, and to walk that narrow way. The style of the book is easy, informal and conversational. It blends together relevant autobiography, popular culture references, good biblical exposition, accessible theological reflection, and wise, practical, pastoral counsel.
