Throughout, the twin themes emerge-one of God's demand of righteousness and another of his prior, enabling grace. Discipleship to Jesus stands in relation to its Old Testament precedents, preserving continuity in the grace/demand interplay. Jesus' ministry to Israel is the fulfillment of the interactions between God and his people, assuming the roles of righteous King and gracious Servant. Faithful discipleship to Jesus...read more

Author Bill Campbell believes that Christians can have a significant positive influence on how the larger culture frames the issue of same-sex attraction.
