Overview


Some Christians have had it with homosexuality in the church, particularly among leadership in the African-American church. In his new book Straight Up, author Michael Stevens takes a no-nonsense, hard-hitting approach to exposing the double lifestyle and its ramifications. He then offers redeeming hope to those who want out.

Tired of the homosexual agenda trying to “soothe our conscience and level of tolerance,” Stevens fires back with a hard-hitting, in-depth look at the emotional, spiritual, and psychological damage this “nurtured” disease is having on the very core of the black family—the male seed. He adamantly pushes forward on this controversial subject because “we must deal with a disease that is invisible with no symptoms of potential threat or current characteristics of existence.”

Stevens also points out that “for every deception and myth, there is hope and healing.” He offers a four-step process that begins with acceptance, followed by repentance, avoidance, and confidence. The detailed plan, he is sure, will help men walk out of the double lifestyle into a new life full of straight living.
