From the backcover of ARE GAYS REALLY "GAY"? A Sociological, Scientific, and Theological Analysis.:



"The title on the front conveys a double meaning by asking the question: Are gays really 'gay'? Are gays really 'gay' as in 'happy'? Are gays really 'gay' as in genetics? The subject of male homosexuality is discussed from three viewpoints: sociological, scientific, and theological.

The sociological section deals with the issue of minority status for gays. ... same civil rights protection as African Americans? ... racism in the gay community? ...homosexuality allowed in the military?

The second section examines the scientific implications ... born that way? ... genetic predisposition or .... learned behavior?

The final section ... explores what the Bible says ... lesbianism ...

As a device to capture and keep the interest of the reader, the book uses, to some extent, the point-counterpoint approach in its theological section. ...

Every instance of homosexuality in the Bible is carefully analyzed. ...

Read this book and judge for yourself whether gays are really 'gay'."

 
In addition to the book listed here at auction, Dr. Carr has authored several other books about "Jehovah's Witnesses" and other Bible related topics. Carr's books have received much acclaim from scholars, and one is even used as a college textbook.
