Morgan James’s new release, Uncommon Love: God’s Heart for Christian Parents of Gay Kids by Mary Comm, is a Bible study for every Christian parent who wants to show unconditional love to their LGB child (minor or adult) without compromising their own Christian identity, faith, and values.
Uncommon Love is a landmark Bible study, and the first of its kind. In a culture where gay rights, gay marriage, and a surplus of gender issues have recently exploded in the media, more and more kids are coming out. Many of these children are from Christian homes with Christian parents who don’t know what to do, how to respond, where to draw boundaries or if they even should. Scripture, which is the foundational basis for how to live the Christian life, has even been brought into question, further confusing the hearts and minds of Christian parents. Mary Comm presents a comprehensive navigational map for Christian parents whose kids (whether minor or adult) have Same-Sex Attraction (SSA) or are living the LGB lifestyle. Uncommon Love’s primary purpose is to help parents maintain a loving, mutually respectful relationship with their LGB children.
Mary Comm presents a thoroughly Biblical and theologically sound Bible study with a comprehensive appeal within the evangelical Christian community. Uncommon Love is useful for all levels of church leaders, parachurch organizations, and evangelical Christian communities. It instructs and supports parents who want to show unconditional love to their LGB child while revealing God’s heart for everyone affected by this complex and difficult situation. It strikes the delicate balance between compassionate love and understanding for the person with SSA without condoning sinful behavior. Mary Comm empowers parents to set healthy boundaries that help to preserve an authentic relationship with their LGB children, while also honoring God, their faith, and the LGB person.
“It’s time we, in the Church, begin a new conversation about homosexuality,” says Comm. “It’s a conversation that is saturated with Jesus’ love for everyone (us included) no matter what the sin, while still maintaining the truth of God’s Word and His ultimate desire that we live our lives in a manner that is pleasing to Him. It goes beyond ‘hating the sin and loving the sinner.’ Instead, it’s embracing and walking alongside the hurting individual and pointing them to Jesus for healing, hope, and the opportunity for a life free from the bondage of sin. Each of us is wounded. Each of us, when we act out of our woundedness makes a mess of our lives. Jesus offers a better way.”
Inspiring and encouraging, Uncommon Love provides practical tools for parents in their grief, loss, fear, hopes, and relationships with their LGB children and other affected relationships. Also, Mary Comm provides the ultimate win-win scenario that helps establish mutual respect, trust, and hope in a painful and seemingly hopeless situation.
