Few changes in popular culture are causing more discomfort and raising more questions in the church than how the LGBTQ+ lifestyle is going mainstream in North America. It's not just outside the church. Over the last 20 years, Christians who accept and even approve at least parts of the LGBTQ+ lifestyle increased from next to none to almost one in three today. For this reason, prominent biblical scholar and congregational leader Dr. Rubel Shelly wrote his latest book, 'Male & Female God Created Them: A Biblical Review of LGBTQ+ Claims.' In this episode, Dr. Shelly answers questions about his new book and the scholarship and thinking that went into its conclusions.
