Gay Conversations with God Book Review:

Representing a first in gay and Christian publishing, this provocative book presents a complete reversal of thought and action, contending that God loves homosexuals without attempting to refute scripture references. The study confronts its subject with a quirky sense of humor in the spirit of the “bedtime story,” providing a rare evangelical Christian volume addressed directly to the gay community. Unorthodox in its presentation, this guide speaks the language of those who may feel abandoned, condemned, and damned while avoiding reinterpretations of scriptural passages, making the gospel accessible to a younger, free-spirited generation. Spearheading a volatile topic with candor and grace, this consideration reframes the never-ending question, Is homosexuality a sin? and instead asks the gay community for a cease-fire—to forgive, love, and help put a stop to a cultural war being waged in the world.

Marriage and Sexuality by Design Book Review:

Marriage and Sexuality by Design is a powerful teaching tool aimed at equipping every believer with solid biblical truth while exposing and correcting the erroneous teachings of LGBT advocates. The Christian community must possess a sound irrefutable working knowledge of the Scriptures or face being misled into error. It is not enough to say "I believe same-sex marriages are wrong," we must clearly understand exactly what the Bible teaches and be capable of sharing the light of God's word with our children, friends, family, and others. We must not allow the unenlightened advocates of same-sex relationships to tell our children "your parents are homophobic ignorant religious freaks." We must lovingly teach God's design for marriage and sexuality. All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)Same-sex proponents argue the Bible has always supported homosexuality and same-sex relationships. They insist that King David and Saul's son Jonathan were homosexual lovers, and the book of Ruth illustrates a lesbian relationship between Naomi and her daughter-in-law Ruth. They falsely claim that Jesus taught some people are born homosexuals. In fact, the LGBT affirming church movement openly teaches, practices and condones all same-sex marriages as approved of God. The LGBT agenda to normalize homosexuality is finding acceptance among several denominations as Godly behavior. Believers and pastors must not continue down the path of silence. We must know God's mind on this subject and loving and courageously teach the truth. Marriage and Sexuality by Design offers powerful biblical expositions and detailed analysis of God's immutable and absolute design for marriage and sexuality. You can view a sample reading of the book's contents here or click on the book pic above. During the writing of this book, the debate over God's design for marriage vs. same-sex marriage was trending across America. The LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transsexual) community was gaining sympathy, support, and acceptance for same-sex marriages. The inevitability of the Supreme Court taking up the matter and redefining marriage to include same-sex couples was imminent. On June 26, 2015, the Court's ruling was published in favor of same-sex marriages by a narrow margin of 5-4. Same-sex marriages became legal in all fifty states. The Court's ruling was celebrated by same-sex advocates as a victory, but there is nothing victorious about a man-made law that diametrically opposes God's exclusive design for marriage. The Court's ruling is a departure from the historical evidence and judicial precedent that defines marriage as being exclusively between a man and a woman. The ruling is an ignominious failure, void of wisdom and morality. The toxicity of such a ruling flows from the forbidden behavior it sanctions. The historical teaching of the Holy Scriptures and thousands of years of moral understanding testify against this disgraceful decision. Throughout this book, I will contrast God's design for marriage and sexuality against a growing body of misleading information, corrupted scriptural interpretations, and phantom doctrines based on fabricated stories. The LGBT agenda to normalize same-sex relationships and same-sex unions as an equivalent alternative to heterosexual marriages is completely alien to all biblical and secular history. Moreover, the insistence of some same-sex proponents alleging homosexual relationships was always acceptable and approved by God is without foundation and blatantly wrong.

Over the Cliff Book Review:

"Over the Cliff" is a self-help book for husbands and wives living in straight/gay marriages. Over three million gay men in the United States and millions more around the world are living double lives in marriages to women due to societal pressures or a lack of understanding their homosexuality at the time of marriage. This book has over a dozen interviews with men who have lived through this experience and offer their insights to others. The book is co-authored by Bonnie Kaye, M.Ed., an internationally recognized counseling specialist for straight wives married to gay men and Doug Dittmer, a gay husband peer counselor who has worked with Kaye over the past five years helping numerous gay men in marriages come to terms with their homosexuality so they can move on to more fulfilling lives. About the Authors Bonnie Kaye is an internationally recognized Relationship Counselor/Author in the field of straight/gay marriages. She has provided relationship counseling for over 25 years with more than 70,000 women who have sexually dysfunctional husbands due to homosexuality, bisexuality, transgenderism or sexual addictions. She is considered an authority in this field by other professionals and the media. Kaye has published five books on straight/gay relationships, which have sold thousands of copies.

With over 30 years experience in business management, Talent Acquisition and Executive Recruitment, Doug Dittmer's career has depended on his ability to coach clients and employees in problem resolution. Eighteen years into his marriage, Doug faced his own crisis and announced that he was gay. In 1981 Doug put his skills to work to fight discrimination against lesbian, gay and bisexual people. Doug began as a Legislative Lobbyist for the Michigan Organization for Human Rights (MOHR), the State's premier gay rights organization. Within a short time he was elected as the group's Education Officer, charged with the responsibility of educating the general public about lesbian and gay issues. Doug went on to be elected President of the organization. Under his leadership, a task force of volunteer litigation attorneys was recruited to overturn Michigan's sodomy statutes. Two years later, in MOHR v. Kelly, MOHR achieved that objective when the Wayne County Circuit Court ruled the statute as unconstitutional. In November 1985, the Detroit City Council recognized his achievements and leadership in the area of human rights by awarding him the Spirit of Detroit Award. Over the years since, Doug has reached out to other gay men coming to terms with their sexuality in mid-life, acting as peer counselor and coach.

Gay Straight and the Reason why Book Review:

What causes a child to grow up gay or straight? In this book, neuroscientist Simon LeVay summarizes a wealth of scientific evidence that points to one inescapable conclusion: Sexual orientation results primarily from an interaction between genes, sex hormones, and the cells of the developingbody and brain.LeVay helped create this field in 1991 with a much-publicized study in Science, where he reported on a difference in the brain structure between gay and straight men. Since then, an entire scientific discipline has sprung up around the quest for a biological explanation of sexual orientation. Inthis book, LeVay provides a clear explanation of where the science stands today, taking the reader on a whirlwind tour of laboratories that specialize in genetics, endocrinology, neuroscience, cognitive psychology, evolutionary psychology, and family demographics. He describes, for instance, howresearchers have manipulated the sex hormone levels of animals during development, causing them to mate preferentially with animals of their own gender. LeVay also reports on the prevalence of homosexual behavior among wild animals, ranging from Graylag geese to the Bonobo chimpanzee.In this revised edition LeVay broadens his horizons. He adds a new chapter on bisexuality, reviews some uncommon forms of sexuality such as asexuality and pedophilia, and considers whether there could be a biological basis for subtypes of gay people such as "butch" and "femme" lesbians.Although many details remain unresolved, the general conclusion is quite clear: A person's sexual orientation arises in large part from biological processes that are already underway before birth.

Not Gay Book Review:

A straight white girl can kiss a girl, like it, and still call herself straight—her boyfriend may even encourage her. But can straight white guys experience the same easy sexual fluidity, or would kissing a guy just mean that they are really gay? Not Gay thrusts deep into a world where straight guy-on-guy action is not a myth but a reality: there’s fraternity and military hazing rituals, where new recruits are made to grab each other’s penises and stick fingers up their fellow members’ anuses; online personal ads, where straight men seek other straight men to masturbate with; and, last but not least, the long and clandestine history of straight men frequenting public restrooms for sexual encounters with other men. For Jane Ward, these sexual practices reveal a unique social space where straight white men can—and do—have sex with other straight white men; in fact, she argues, to do so reaffirms rather than challenges their gender and racial identity. Ward illustrates that sex between straight white men allows them to leverage whiteness and masculinity to authenticate their heterosexuality in the context of sex with men. By understanding their same-sex sexual practice as meaningless, accidental, or even necessary, straight white men can perform homosexual contact in heterosexual ways. These sex acts are not slippages into a queer way of being or expressions of a desired but unarticulated gay identity. Instead, Ward argues, they reveal the fluidity and complexity that characterizes all human sexual desire. In the end, Ward’s analysis offers a new way to think about heterosexuality—not as the opposite or absence of homosexuality, but as its own unique mode of engaging in homosexual sex, a mode characterized by pretense, dis-identification and racial and heterosexual privilege. Daring, insightful, and brimming with wit, Not Gay is a fascinating new take on the complexities of heterosexuality in the modern era.

The Invention of Heterosexuality Book Review:

“Heterosexuality,” assumed to denote a universal sexual and cultural norm, has been largely exempt from critical scrutiny. In this boldly original work, Jonathan Ned Katz challenges the common notion that the distinction between heterosexuality and homosexuality has been a timeless one. Building on the history of medical terminology, he reveals that as late as 1923, the term “heterosexuality” referred to a "morbid sexual passion," and that its current usage emerged to legitimate men and women having sex for pleasure. Drawing on the works of Sigmund Freud, James Baldwin, Betty Friedan, and Michel Foucault, The Invention of Heterosexuality considers the effects of heterosexuality’s recently forged primacy on both scientific literature and popular culture. “Lively and provocative.”—Carol Tavris, New York Times Book Review “A valuable primer . . . misses no significant twists in sexual politics.”—Gary Indiana, Village Voice Literary Supplement “One of the most important—if not outright subversive—works to emerge from gay and lesbian studies in years.”—Mark Thompson, The Advocate

Maybe He s Not Gay Second Edition Book Review:

"I'm gay." An ever greater number of young people are deciding this is their true "identity," while at the same time demanding society usher in a host of new "civil rights" to promote the ever-expanding expression and celebration of their "gayness." But is this even true, that being "gay" is really "who you are?" Does this identity bring liberation - or a whole new burden? Does it lift the veil of secrecy - or start a new kind of struggle? "Maybe He's Not Gay" is a straight-talk resource that addresses these questions and speaks directly to each adolescent heart with compassion and truth. And now the 2nd edition of this popular book brings readers a powerful new chapter: "Maybe He's Not ... a Girl," revealing the truth behind the explosion in gender confusion. Author Linda Harvey gives hope and answers to those confused by the turmoil of adolescence, which for some, may include same-sex attractions or gender confusion. The book explodes the lies of the homosexual agenda and explains to young people what their feelings really mean - and why a new identity as "gay" may not be the final answer.
