Item description for Straight Up: The Church's Offcial Response to the Epidemic of Downlow Living by Michael Stevens...
Overview Some Christians have had it with homosexuality in the church, particularly among leadership in the African-American church. In his new book Straight Up, author Michael Stevens takes a no-nonsense, hard-hitting approach to exposing the double lifestyle and its ramifications. He then offers redeeming hope to those who want out.
Tired of the homosexual agenda trying to ?soothe our conscience and level of tolerance,? Stevens fires back with a hard-hitting, in-depth look at the emotional, spiritual, and psychological damage this ?nurtured? disease is having on the very core of the black family?the male seed. He adamantly pushes forward on this controversial subject because ?we must deal with a disease that is invisible with no symptoms of potential threat or current characteristics of existence.?
Stevens also points out that ?for every deception and myth, there is hope and healing.? He offers a four-step process that begins with acceptance, followed by repentance, avoidance, and confidence. The detailed plan, he is sure, will help men walk out of the double lifestyle into a new life full of straight living.

Reviews - What do customers think about Straight Up?
...thank you... May 23, 2010
i really didn't know what to expect when i bought this book for my kindle but i was pleased with what i read.i think this is the black church's official response to this 'DL' problem.
he basically addresses what needs to be done by individuals caught in and affected by this situation. all i want to say is the book is vital, was a bit short but he managed to get the message through very thoroughly but compassionately.i highly recommend it for those open to the truth.
