This book is presented as a fusion of two books by Dr Botha: The Bible and Homosex – Sexual truths for a modern society and The Empty Testament – Four Arguments Against Gay Theology. Every effort was made to eliminate repetitions and some parts were exchanged between the two books in order to present a flowing order with some revision where it was deemed necessary. The first eight chapters explore the Bible hermeneutically and exegetically for its views on homosexuality, while the later chapters are mainly concerned with the four arguments against gay theology. The two appendices are written by André Bekker.

Dr Botha’s video presentations on the material covered in this book, can be viewed online under the following topics:
