Additional Information

In this updated edition of A Strong Delusion, author and counselor Joe Dallas helps readers understand what pro-gay theology is and how to confront it. In a biblical manner, Dallas examines believers' personal responses and the need for bold love and commitment as they

  • become familiar with the movement's background and beliefs
  • study a clear, scriptural response to each belief
  • extend Christ's love to those living the homosexual lifestyle

This resource is an important one for those who have been unsure how to respond to the growing acceptance of homosexuality in the evangelical community. It offers the balance between conviction and compassion and a practical guide to communicating with those who have embraced the pro-gay Christian movement.

I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to understand this subject better.

As someone who has friends and relatives who are gay, I was concerned about what "Christians" say about homosexuality. So I read the Bible through, cover to cover. To me it was very clear, and repeated often, that the Bible considers homosexual activity a sin. This only increased my concern for my loved ones' life choices.

Next, I discussed this with my pro-gay minister, and asked him to show me in the Bible where homosexuality is not condemned. He gave me four books to read on the subject. The authors were impressive (but biased) and the theology and writing creative. The writers claimed that the Bible was repeatedly misinterpreted, or just plain wrong.

I wasn't convinced so I ordered The Gay Gospel and it helped me understand homosexuals better, and confirmed my own research that according to the Bible homosexuality is a sin -- no worse or better than others we... Read more
Joe Dallas is a good spokesperson for this topic as a former member of the gay Christian movement and staff member of a gay church. He systematically builds his case against the notion of pro-gay theology, but he does it with gentleness and love, and he encourages his readers to use the same tact.

While readily admitting that too many so-called Christians bash homosexuals, he does not give homosexuals a free pass just because they have been victims. He continually walks a fine line of balancing truth in love, and his civil tone allows him to present a good conclusion.

Dallas lists all the pro-gay lines he used to use, but uses Scripture, science, and other resources to refute them.
Joe Dallas is to be commended for writing a fine book on such a thorny issue as homosexuality in the church. He does not lower himself to the level of name-calling, stereotyping, or denigrating homosexuals or the proponents of their theology. Having come from the Gay Christian community himself, he is thoroughly knowledgeable in their arguments, rationale, and the mistreatement they have endured. He evaluates their reasoning from a sympathetic and balanced tone, yet argues firmly and without apology against them. Much of the book is set forth in an argument and response format, with brief dialogues following each chapter to present how a hypothetical discussion might go.

The most important thing about the book and Dallas' approach is that he holds unswervingly to the Bible as the divine standard by which all our actions are to be held to account. He describes his own inner struggles as he attempted to reconcile his homosexual desires with his Christian faith, and how he... Read more
