I don t normally review nonfiction but this book is too good to not talk about If you follow Christianity and are in or know someone in the LGBT community I highly recommend you read this book Brownson takes time to examine commonly used Biblical passages down to the original languages and provides the cultural content of those passages He also does his best to examine arguments on both sides of the debate acknowledging their best and worst logic He also provides a framework for Christian gay and lesbian relationships that are founded in scriptureMy biggest criticism is that Brownson mostly focuses on the L and G in the acronym I would have loved discussion about the spiritual framework for other sexual and gender minorities but I think the same principles can be applied there as well Brownson also writes like a scholar so don t expect a light beach read with this book Still I think it s worth a look if these issues are relevant to you or someone you care about

Bible, Gender, Sexuality Summary ½ 107 Download à eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ä James V. Brownson Read & Download Bible, Gender, Sexuality Grapples conscientiously with biblical texts at the heart of the church's debate over same sex relationships This thought provoking book by James Brownson develops a broad cross cultural sexual ethic from Scripture locates current debates over homosexuality in that wider context and explores why the Bible speaks the way it does about same sex relations. Persusing reviews for books like this can be frustrating Freuently those who are uncomfortable with Brownson s argument immediately lump it in the 1 star category while there are those on the other side who are eually simply looking for a smart argument that affirms their own desire to affirm same sex unions in the church and slap it with 5 stars or whatever the appropriate rating system allows What both seem to miss is interacting with the substance of the argument laid out in the work which it is important to admit in this case is extremely goodBrownson has in my estimation provided the most thoughtful sensitive and lucid explanation for an affirming perspective that is rooted in careful biblical exegesis One doesn t need to agree with his conclusions to notice and appreciate this and I think that those of us in ministry would do well to take notice and thoughtfully engage with his arguments here In particular his discussions of topics like gender complementarity patriarchy lust desire and kinship are all remarkably culturally aware and pastorally sensitive This is not a lightweight argument that ignores opposing viewpoints and we need to treat it with the respect that type of argument deservesWhile I found some of his afore mentioned discussions compelling there were also interesting missing pieces I wish he had interacted carefully with the image of marriage in Ephesians 5 and I found his dismissal of the considerations of sexual orientation as a concept in the ancient world to be a bit too uick So I may not be in alignment with his conclusions but the fact remains that I was enriched by the book and encourage anyone who is interacting with these discussions today to be familiar with it For a balanced response from the traditionalist perspective see Wesley Hill

This book is written not so much with an open mind but by a loving father who wants to make sense of his son s sexual orientation If what the bible seems to say conflicts with this preconceived idea the words of the bible are taken apart and fit together again so they fit in the box Maybe dr Brownson should write about this subject again in 20 years
