Publisher's Summary

This is a book written primarily for gay Christians and those who love them.

Part memoir, part pastoral-theological reflection, this book wrestles with three main areas of struggle that many gay Christians face:
(1) What is God's will for sexuality?
(2) If the historic Christian tradition is right and same-sex behavior is ruled out, how should gay Christians deal with their resulting loneliness?
(3) How can gay Christians come to an experience of grace that rescues them from crippling feelings of shame and guilt? Author Wesley Hill is not advocating that it is possible for every gay Christian to become straight, nor is he saying that God affirms homosexuality. Instead, Hill comes alongside gay Christians and says, "You are not alone. Here is my experience; it's like yours. And God is with us. We can share in God's grace."
While some authors profess a deep faith in Christ and claim a powerful experience of the Holy Spirit precisely in and through their homosexual practice, Hill's own story, by contrast, is a story of feeling spiritually hindered, rather than helped, by his homosexuality.
His story testifies that homosexuality was not God's original creative intention for humanity—that it is, on the contrary, a tragic sign of human nature and relationships being fractured by sin—and therefore that homosexual practice goes against God's express will for all human beings, especially those who trust in Christ.

Redemptive and applicable to all who struggle with sin

Wesley comforts others with the comfort he’s been given! His story is a remarkable story of personal sacrifice for the sake of Christ. All Who claim the name of Christ can be encouraged by Wesley’s story and can find words of encouragement and guidance as we strive to walk alongside our brothers and sisters who struggle with same-sex attraction.

Amazing book

This book was so eye opening and encouraging in so many ways. As a pastor wanting to understand the struggle many people go though this was a great book. It's not just a book to understand homosexuality but it is a great book to understand and see the struggle of any temptation.
