This book provides Pentecostals with the necessary equipment
and motivation to contribute to one of Africa’s important
ethical challenges, LGBTIQ+ people and Africa’s homophobic
reaction to them. The study is aimed at Christian believers
and pastors, to empower them with relevant information about
the issue. The issue is discussed in terms of existing
biological, psychological, anthropological, sociological,
philosophical and queer theory knowledge, along with a study
of the biblical texts, in order to answer the question, what
should a responsible African Pentecostal response be towards
the LGBTIQ+ issue, and what should Pentecostals‘ attitude be
towards such people?

Marius Nel holds the chair „Ecumene:
Pentecostalism and Neo-Pentecostalism“ at North-West
University in Potchefstroom, South Africa.
