    New Book’s Christian View of Homosexuality is Surprising and Truly Christian When I first saw the title for this book, I did not know what to expect. Who was Juliet Jacky Hodge, and by asking Is Being Gay a Sin? what would the answer she provided be? At first, I expected some conservative, Bible-thumping, anti-gay author, but I also realized it could be some liberal and most likely gay person who was writing this book and seeking acceptance. In either case, the author would have an agenda and rigid viewpoint—or so I expected. Instead, I was surprised and enticed by who the author really is. Juliet Jacky Hodge is a Christian from a fairly conservative religious background (she studied theology at Oral Roberts University). A native of Trinidad, she did not grow up in a gay-friendly atmosphere or even one where homosexuality was discussed or an issue. In fact, she did not give homosexuality much thought other than simply to accept the teachings of the churches she attended. Then one day... More > she met some gay people, felt troubled, and prayed about the situation and heard God speak to her. I won’t reveal what God said to her. It would be unfair to summarize the story here. But I will say that I was a bit skeptical still at a statement that God spoke to her and somewhat surprised by His words. But as I continued to read and Hodge continually calmly and logically argued her points, I felt convinced that she was telling the truth and that no other answer could be possible to the question of Is Being Gay a Sin? Of course, not everyone will agree with Hodge’s conclusions, and some will question or perhaps even mock her claims that she has received these answers from God, but I think anyone who takes the time to read this book will be surprised and deeply moved by what is to be found in these pages. I ask that readers, before they become judgmental, take the time to this book with open hearts and minds, to let Hodge’s words seep into their hearts. Is Being Gay a Sin? is a book that will definitely surprise you, and after that, it will heal your conflicting thoughts and your fears and bring peace to your soul. For me, what makes Is Being Gay a Sin? remarkable is it comes from within the largely conservative Christian community, not from within a liberal setting or the gay movement, yet it offers, coupled with biblical and rational support, one of the most Christian outpourings of love I have ever known.< Less
