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

  • study a clear, scriptural response to each belief
  • extend Christ's love to those living the homosexual lifestyle

It offers the balance between conviction and compassion and a practical guide to communicating with those who have embraced the pro-gay Christian movement.
