God and the Gay Christian?: A New Book by Albert Mohler and SBTS

Today, Dr. R. Albert Mohler, Jr. has edited a book with chapters from some of his colleagues from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and its undergraduate school, Boyce College, called God and the Gay Christian?: A Response to Matthew Vines (click the link to download a free pdf of the book). As the subtitle suggests, the 96 page book is in direct response to a book simultaneously published today by Matthew Vines entitled God and the Gay Christian: The Biblical Case in Support of Same-Sex Relationships.

In light of this books release, a number of great commentaries, links, and articles have been produced by Southern Seminary and its faculty (most of whom are contributors to the book). I have not read either Matthew Vines's book or the response from SBTS but do consider this an important conversation that I want to pass along a number of links related to it.
