In addition to Barry's post about the forthcoming The Gospel and Sexual Orientation and my post about Dan Savage, here are a few more related and helpful things that have come across my desk lately:

"Is the Megachurch the New Liberalism?" Al Mohler addresses both the general question of megachurches' theological pragmatis and a very disturbing sermon from North Point's Andy Stanley, which strongly intimated the legitimacy of homosexual lifestyles.

A Christian Psychology of and Response to Homsexuality--I listened to this address from Sam Williams to the Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary just before I heard Dan Savage's memoir. With a slightly different approach than I'm used to, I found it extremely helpful and plan on returning to it soon. He especially does a good job applying the gospel: "The gospel changes the most important things initially, and it changes everything eventually."

"Do you think homosexuality is disgusting?" Ed Welch's answer to this question may or may not surprise you, but it will challenge you. "I deeply desire to imitate Jesus in tone and content. I want to approximate his way of inviting others, especially his way of inviting those who couldn’t imagine being invited by the Lord. "
