RELATED TITLES UNIQUE SELLING POINTS A Christian parents guide to beginning open and honest discussions about homosexuality Christian parents need to be prepared to answer the myriad challenges teens might hear in todays increasingly pro- homosexual culture. Why shouldnt gays get married Who says gay sex is wrong Does the Bible actually say theres anything wrong with homosexuality Dont you care that kids are being bullied just for being themselves To start the discussion Gilson provides a brief history of the issues beginning with the sexual revolution of the 1960s. He explains how and why cultural attitudes have reversed on this subject in such a short timespan leaving Christians scrambling for answers. This is perhaps the most complicated and contentious issue Christians face in todays culture. Most churches are poorly equipped to handle it parents are even less prepared. The good news is that parents need not have pat answers ready before they dive into conversations with their teens and preteens on this dif- ficult topic. Learning togetherparents struggling through these issues alongside their kids and leading them to biblical answers has relational benefits. Answers are important though so manageable nontechnical answers to common questions surrounding this issue are pro- vided as well as a guide to further resources. Tom Gilson is the national field director for Ratio Christi Student Apologetics Alliance. Monthly Worldview and You columnist at BreakPoint he has also written articles for Discipleship Journal Touchstone Magazine and Salvo and he blogs at both Thinking Christian and The Point. He lives in Lebanon Ohio with wife Sarah and their two college-aged children and he enjoys canoe- ing sailing and long walks in the woods. 15 THOUGHTFUL BOOKS Critical Conversations A Christian Parents Guide to Discussing Homosexuality with Teens Tom Gilson 978-0-8254-4396-1 15.99 Paperback 5.5 x 8.5 224 pages Christian Life Family Kregel Publications Rights World February 27 2016 ISBN 978-0-8254-4396-1 9 7 8 0 8 2 5 4 4 3 9 6 1 Helps parents think through the big questions alongside their kids Biblically informed thoughtful conservative guidance Written by an apologetics expertHomosexuality 978-0-8254-2492-2 23.99 Hot Buttons Sexuality Edition 978-0-8254-4242-1 11.99
