Gregory A. Boyd
-- pastor, author of Letters from a Skeptic and Cross Vision
"At a time when debates about the viability of same-sex unions for Christians often generate more heat than light, this marvelous little book by Karen Keen is a true gift. . . . All readers will benefit from, and be blessed by, engaging with Keen's well-researched, well-written, heartfelt book."

Adam Hamilton
-- pastor, author of Unafraid: Living with Courage and Hope in Uncertain Times
"A very important contribution to the conversation about same-sex marriage taking place in the church today. Keen takes the Bible seriously and approaches the issues as one who knows and understands what is at stake for both sides of the debate. I highly recommend this book."

Elaine A. Heath
-- professor at Duke Divinity School, author of God Unbound: Wisdom from Galatians for the Anxious Church
"Karen Keen here provides a needed, integrative perspective that fruitfully brings together evangelical biblical interpretation, theological ethics, and pastoral wisdom to frame a loving, Christ-honoring discussion about same-sex relationships. This is a very helpful resource for seminary students, pastors, and congregations."

"Illuminating the history of biblical interpretation concerning sexuality and marriage, Keen contributes a work of great distinction to the literature of homosexuality and Christianity."
