Overview

Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer, pastor of the Moody Church in Chicago and esteemed theologian, responds to the attacks that marriage has sustained over the past several years. In this revised and updated version of his bestselling book, Dr. Lutzer clearly and accurately depicts the truth about what is at stake here. He addresses the questions that we're all asking:

-How did we get to this point?
-Why is marriage, as God intended it, better-and healthier?
-How can I talk to my kids about this?
-How do I responsibly read, watch, and filter the news?
-Is there still hope?

We don't need to choose between loving homosexuals and opposing same-sex marriages. Biblically, love is defined not as license to legitimatize sinful behavior of any kind, but love helps us see that there is a better way. We must be concerned enough to speak out about any action, heterosexual or homosexual, that violates God's intended plan for marriage and the family.

Read an Excerpt

What would we say to the gay community if we were actually granted a hearing? Let's admit that there are many radicals who will not listen; their ears are closed, their hearts are hardened so nothing we say will make a difference. They have dismantled any bridges of communication with those who disagree with them, except to call them names. But there are others-perhaps a majority-who are in the homosexual lifestyle and would leave it if they thought they could. Their consciences are awakened to the wrongness of what they do, and yet they feel trapped. I believe that we as evangelicals have failed these people, many of whom populate our churches. As a pastor I've listened to their stories of brokenness and heartache. I've heard stories of molestation, of the emptiness of sex without commitment, without love, without caring. No matter what we see on television, the gay community is hurting, compulsively acting out behavior to cover their pain. These are the people for whom we must have compassion, understanding and care. It's a hurting world out there, and all of the wells are dry.
