Dr. Fortson's new book on homosexuality

Unchanging Witness

The consistent Christian teaching on homosexuality in scripture and tradition

by Dr. S. Donald Fortson III and Rollin G. Grams

The Body of Christ is going through a time of severe fracture.  Schism is taking place on a scale not seen since the 16th century, and the reasons for this come into clear focus on the issue of homosexuality. The gay Christian movement and revisionist theologians and exegetes have set up an array of arguments, often mutually exclusive, in favor of homosexual practice.  This book addresses these arguments on a single point: Can they withstand the evidence of the primary sources?
In Unchanging Witness, Donald Fortson and Rollin Grams articulate the consistent orthodox view—historically held everywhere, always, and by all—by presenting primary sources throughout Christian history and by interpreting the biblical texts in their cultural contexts. 

Throughout, the authors survey the conflicting and changing arguments of revisionist readings and contend that, in light of the overwhelming evidence of the relevant texts, the real issue is not one of interpretation but of biblical authority and Christian orthodoxy.
