Publisher's Description

Christians, the church and the Bible seem to be out of step with modern attitudes towards homosexuality. Does the Bible prohibit gay marriage? How can we oppose people who are in love, and just expressing how they were made? Can God really be anti-gay?

This short, readable book offers a positive and liberating way forward. It explains clearly and simply what we can say with certainty from the Bible about marriage, sexuality and same-sex attraction.

“Sam Allberry’s book Is God Anti-Gay? is truly marvelous...Sam writes from the perspective of a pastor who himself struggles with same sex attraction. This makes the book more compassionate and compelling. Sam’s humanity shines through every page; his understanding of weakness undergirds the whole; his compassion for those facing that which he himself faces each day is deeply moving. Those unconvinced by the simplistic pieties of reparative therapy and who are looking for something more biblical will find much helpful material here. This book would make an excellent resource for pastors and elders to keep on hand, given that this is an issue which is set to become more, not less, significant and contentious.” (Reformation21 blog)
- Carl R. Trueman, Paul Woolley Professor of Church History, Westminster Theological Seminary

“Empathetic and wise, learned and clear, hopeful and kind—this book by Sam Allberry is on a topic that can be very challenging. It would be helpful for just about anyone to read.”
– Mark Dever, Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church

“The gospel is good news, for homosexuals too. The gospel doesn't define us by our temptations but by the righteousness of Christ. This book sets forth the biblical case. The author captures perfectly the gospel's call to repentance and offer of mercy. Read this book and consider how God is calling you to love, in word and in deed, all of those around you.”
- Russell D. Moore, President, Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, Southern Baptist Convention; author, Tempted and Tried: Temptation and the Triumph of Christ

“This is an excellent book. It is real and sensitive, bold and biblical. It pulls no punches but is never strident or angular. Sam is clearly writing from the heart, and with a heart for Christ, his people and the world.”
- Steve Timmis, Director, Acts 29 Europe

“Excellent. Short, clear, kind, understanding... this needs to be widely distributed.”
- Jonathan Leeman, Editorial Director, 9Marks; blogger and author

“This short book is outstanding. Sam Allberry handles people carefully, texts wisely and issues sensitively, and the result is a supremely helpful book on perhaps the most challenging issue western Christians face today. I highly recommend it.”
- Andrew Wilson, pastor and blogger at

“Sam writes with genuine pastoral warmth out of his own personal experience. He argues convincingly that, far from being anti-gay, God loves those who experience same-sex attraction and that the gospel is good news for us too.”
- Jonathan Berry, Director, True Freedom Trust

“Every minister should read this book and we should endeavor to get it into the hands of as many of our congregation as possible.”
- Paul Levy, Reformation 21 blog
