Compassion without Compromise by Adam T. Barr and Ron Citlau

Compassion without Compromise is a surprisingly easy read on a very hot topic that is often confronting us as Christians. It’s Compassion without Compromise book cover“easy” as in straightforward, practical, and written for the everyday believer. The authors’, Adam T. Barr and Ron Citlau, heart for both God’s truth and those who struggle in sin is apparent from the front of the book… “How the gospel frees us to love our gay friends without losing the truth” to the back… “” and all the way throughout.

I love the last part of the back summary… “Truth does not preclude kindness—and a good dose of humility is necessary to love our neighbors. With sensitivity and winsomeness, this book will offer an honest but inviting message to readers: We are all in need of the healing that can only come from the truth of the gospel.”

Barr and Citlau are both pastors who have seen how the issue of homosexuality is tearing apart families, friendships and churches. Ron Citlau also has the personal experience of living with same-sex attraction and yet now walking in God’s healing. They talk Biblically and practically with grace and love. Don’t miss the Further Learning and Note section at the back of the book. I found them very helpful and resourceful. There is also more resources including a study guide available at

I received this book for free from Bethany House in exchange for my honest, unbiased opinion.
