About-

The collaborative work of a biblical scholar and a biology professor, Science, Scripture, and Homosexuality addresses scripture passages relating to homosexuality and explains the foundation of genetics and the growing evidence suggesting an organic basis for sexual orientation. The authors argue that "the role of the homosexual, as well as the heterosexual, within the Church should be based upon common criteria for all." Written in a highly accessible manner, the book is ideal for congregational discussion.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"A crisp and lucid account of recent developments in the science of sexual orientation and the understanding of the biblical texts. . . . The book makes clear why an increasing number of people for whom the Bible remains the standard of truth no longer find in it grounds for excluding gays and lesbians from total acceptance in the church."
--Robert B. Coote, San Francisco Theological Seminary and the Graduate Theological Union
 
"Hufford and Ogden Bellis have made a unique contribution to ongoing debates surrounding tensions between the conclusions of science and the interpretation of Christian scriptures, as well as to the conversations about human sexuality within a Christian biblical framework."
--Johanna W.H. van Wijk-Bos, Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary
 
"A fascinating story, well-told, never dull. The perspective is a fresh and important contribution to a debate too often locked in narrow straits."
--Robin Scroggs, Union Theological Seminary, New York
