Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"A brave, engaging, and disarming book that page by page insults our sensibilities and peels away the reader’s safe, comfortable, and secure personal perceptions, attitudes, and limits…. It is an uncomfortable but spiritually rewarding journey with great and demanding insights. And trust me, you will laugh out loud."  —Lisa Darden, booking agent, producer, and director

"This book is the record of an epic search by the soul, told as a journey of discovery into the darkness of doubt and damnation. Through his words, Langteaux shows the reader that it is our faith that maintains us on this journey of shocks, doubts, questions, revelations, joy, and light. And it is this very light that leads the reader into Christ's freeing truth and the profound depth of his love for all his creation."  —Larry Peck, writer and activist

"James, I read your first two books, and as a gay man and an agnostic, I honestly thought you were . . . a hypocrite. After reading Gay Conversations with God, I can honestly say, for the first time in my life, that I now believe that there is a God—and perhaps, he may even love me."  —Paul Gentille, multimedia artist

"James, after reading Gay Conversations with God, I went out today with a smile and so much joy! I knew that God loves me and that made all the difference . . . . In my closet where I was hiding from myself was guilt and shame and the belief that I was unlovable . . . your story is one of sacred tenderness and acceptance . . . at times, as I was reading, I knew I was in truth, listening to the voice of God . . . how real and honest the words are . . . you have such a poetic gift as a writer . . . simple and deep and embracing and real!"  —Toni Gilyard, Poet
