"This brand new book is one of the best yet for Christians who are struggling to find a pro-gay understanding of Scripture.
Short, clear, and amazingly easy to read, this book does much more than offering loopholes or excuses with regards to the Bible.
Instead, the authors combine careful research with . . . humor, personal stories, and numerous Biblical examples to make their case.
A must-read for anyone wanting to understand the Bible better!"

"Many books have argued that the Bible does not condemn same-sex relationships. In the vast
majority of cases, however, the arguments sound like loopholes and excuses, not a sincere reading of Holy Scripture. (Sadly, this includes even the ever-popular [title].)
This book is remarkably different! The authors don't make excuses or water down the text; instead, they take the Bible seriously and treat it respectfully,
allowing the Bible itself to provide the best evidence for their case. Meanwhile, this book is so short, simple, and easy to read that anyone can benefit from it.
The Children Are Free is chock full of anecdotes and examples, making it a delight to read,
even for people who don't normally read about the Bible. Those of us more familiar with the subject will appreciate the clarity of the authors' argument.
Other, similar books made me think, "Yeah, I guess I can see that," but this one left me wondering, "How could you come to any other conclusion?"

"I am pleased to be able to recommend The Children are Free to MCC pastoral leaders. This is a
complete, affirming, easy-to-read book which is grounded in Scripture and contains the latest scholarship. This book will be an excellent resource for all MCC Churches.
The accompanying Study Guide
makes this book an excellent choice for study group programs on the Bible and homosexuality."

"The children are free . . . now I can personalise it and say: "I am free".
I took a day off from work to devote special attention to reading the book and I finished it in
one day's time . . . 'tis so clear, liberating and Holy Ghost inspired. Now I'm free, thank Jesus Christ, yes, free at last."
— a reader from South Africa
". . . I read The Children Are Free over the last two days and was overjoyed by what I found.
This is the first book that I have come across that lays it all out in a succinct fashion that neither leaves out important information, nor makes vague statements of conjecture . . .
I am sending . . . a copy of this book to my pastor. I belong to a non-affirming church . . . Your book will be a good resource for our discussions."

"If you're confused by all the misinformation about homosexuality and the Bible, read The Children Are Free. The authors have created a wonderful, timely,
easy to read summary of the evidence that will inform and inspire your search. Let the Spirit of Truth set you free."
