Hearts and Minds

Main, Darren. Hearts and Minds: Talking to Christians about Homosexuality.  Scotland: Findhorn Press, 2008.

If you are a Christian and want to see how others understand your viewpoint, or if you are gay and want to know how to talk about homosexuality with the Christians in your life, this book would be an excellent resource.  A lot of the information in this book was not new to me, as the author truly chooses to "put the cookies on the bottom shelf," as it were.  He explains the evangelical Christian's stand on homosexuality and offers suggestions for open, calm, honest discussions between those who disagree on this particular issue.  James Waygood calls this book "a brilliantly executed and sound approach to what can be a dangerously impassioned topic" (his review can be accessed here).
