Many arguments are made for and against same-sex marriage that end with divisiveness and confusion instead of thoughtful conversation. New York Times–bestselling author Dr. Preston Sprinkle provides a resource that will encourage respectful and thoughtful conversations around the question “Does the Bible support same-sex marriage?”
Equipped with thorough research, history, and biblical context, this book will enable you to wade into some of the main arguments against the historically Christian view of marriage:
  • The biblical writers didn’t know about sexual orientation.
  • Jesus never mentions homosexuality.
  • Biblical teachings about women, slavery, and same-sex are on the same trajectory.
  • Since some people are born gay, then being gay must be okay.
  • The Bible has been mistranslated.
Preston carefully answers 21 of the strongest cases for same-sex marriage and offers a humanizing and thoughtful response to each one.

Praise For…

“Another splendid book from Preston Sprinkle, who manages to address some of the toughest contemporary issues with a light but vital touch. There is a wealth of important material here in short and accessible form.”

— Rt. Rev. Prof. N. T. Wright, prof emeritus of NT at University of St Andrews

“For any conversation to go anywhere, what we need is not only compassion but clarity. Preston displays both in his ministry and especially in this resource. His lived experience with the LBGTQ community along with the theological depth he holds makes this book a necessity.”

— Jackie Hill Perry, Bible teacher and author of Gay Girl, Good God

“This is a very useful and informative resource for anyone wanting to understand the arguments supporting an affirmative view of gay marriage. Preston does a masterful job of combining biblical scholarship, historical evidence, current trends, and personal compassion in his responses.”

— Juli Slattery, PsyD, president and cofounder of Authentic Intimacy
