"Don't turn your back on those who need you the most. You don't have to understand homosexuality in order to love someone."--Tom
How do I show understanding and true concern when I find out my friend is gay? What do I say? If I stay friends with him or her, won't other people suspect I'm gay? How should I act toward my gay friend?
What Do I Say to a Friend Who's Gay?will help you find real, practical answers to these questions. You will learn what the Bible says about being gay and how you can show real love for your friend the way Jesus would without judging or hating the person. Using real-life stories and solid biblical teaching, this book shows young adults how to stand firm in the truth of Scripture and reach out with compassion to a person who is gay.
Discussion questions at the end of each chapter stimulate individual or group study.
