How prevalent is homosexuality What causes it Is it a psychopathology Can it be changed Questions like these often accompany discussions of homosexual behavior For answers we naturally look to scientific studies But what does the scientific research actually show More important what place should this research have in shaping the church s response Stanton Jones and Mark Yarhouse help us face these issues squarely and honestly In four central chapters they examine how scientific research has been used within church debates in particular within Methodist Presbyterian and Episcopal contexts They then survey the most recent and best scientific research and sort out what it actually shows Next they help us to interpret the research s relevance to the moral debate within the church In a concluding chapter they make a strong case for a traditional Christian sexual ethic Church groups considering these complex issues will find helpful discussion questions at the end of each chapter This book is essential reading for anyone involved in the church s debate over homosexual behavior
