Homosexuality continues to become more conspicuous in our society as gay liberators carry on their campaign of public persuasion.

Editor-at-large Carl F. H. Henry takes a hard look at a book scheduled for publication this week: The Young Evangelicals by Richard A. Quebedeaux (Harper & Row). Henry examines the views of the young evangelicals, tells where he agrees and disagrees with them, and offers some seasoned advice.
