Human Sexuality

The Bible and Homosexual Practice

Robert A.J. Gagnon

Robert Gagnon, a professor of New Testament at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary, offers a thorough analysis to date of the biblical texts relating to homosexuality. He demonstrates why attempts to classify the Bible’s rejection of same-sex intercourse as irrelevant for our contemporary context fail to do justice to the biblical texts and to current scientific data. Gagnon’s book powerfully challenges attempts to identify love and inclusivity with affirmation of homosexual practice.
