The Holy Union of David and Jonathan is a provocative biblical story of passion and political intrigue. LGBT readers will discover a story that will help them find self-acceptance and constructively challenge the prejudice of religious homophobes. David and Jonathan formed a magnificent and beautiful partnership that they apparently intended to last for a lifetime. Theirs was a loving and committed relationship. The failure of our culture to recognize the intrinsic divinity of homosexuality and the sanctity of our relationships is the central dilemma challenging lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered people. Our society's civil morality is informed by the religious mores of our culture. A redefined cultural and societal understanding of same-sex love derived from and supported by the Bible-a widespread knowledge of the holy union of David and Jonathan-will have a profound impact on the long-term success of our justice movement.

Were David and Jonathan 'gay' lovers? This very modern question lies behind the recent explosion of studies of the David and Jonathan narrative. Interpreters differ in their assessment of whether 1 and 2 Samuel offer a positive portrayal of a homosexual relationship. Beneath the conflict of interpretations lies an ambiguous biblical text which has drawn generations of readers - from the redactors of the Hebrew text and the early translators to modern biblical scholars - to the task of resolving its possible meanings. What has not yet been fully explored is the place of David and Jonathan in the evolution of modern, Western understandings of same-sex relationships, in particular how the story of their relationship was read alongside classical narratives, such as those of Achilles and Patroclus, or Orestes and Pylades. The Love of David and Jonathan explores this context in detail to argue that the story of David and Jonathan was part of the process by which the modern idea of homosexuality itself emerged.

Written by an L. A. County homicide detective and former atheist, Cold-Case Christianity examines the claims of the New Testament using the skills and strategies of a hard-to-convince criminal investigator. Christianity could be defined as a “cold case”: it makes a claim about an event from the distant past for which there is little forensic evidence. In Cold-Case Christianity, J. Warner Wallace uses his nationally recognized skills as a homicide detective to look at the evidence and eyewitnesses behind Christian beliefs. Including gripping stories from his career and the visual techniques he developed in the courtroom, Wallace uses illustration to examine the powerful evidence that validates the claims of Christianity. A unique apologetic that speaks to readers’ intense interest in detective stories, Cold-Case Christianity inspires readers to have confidence in Christ as it prepares them to articulate the case for Christianity.
