taking the words of Jesus seriously

Last week Steve Chalke, the “Billy Graham of the UK, ” and my close friend, came out in support of committed, faithful, same-sex relationships. I wrote about my reaction to Steve’s announcement as soon as the news broke and many others around the world have registered their opinions since.

During the past week the BBC reached out to Steve and I separately and each of us appeared on BBC radio. With the BBC’s permission below you will find Steve’s interview as it ran on the air and my interview in its entirety before it was edited down:
