Embrace the Bible’s Hope for Profound Personal Change
Is same-sex attraction sinful, even if it’s not acted on? Bible-believing Christians have personal and pastoral reasons to answer this question well, since our answer will shape how we counsel and encourage our brothers and sisters.
What does it mean for homosexuality to be transformed? Denny Burk and Heath Lambert challenge misconceptions on all sides as they present biblical answers on sexual orientation and change. Ultimately, hope rests not in heterosexuality, human effort, or willpower, but in Christ.
“A clear, compassionate, and thought-provoking book. . . . Essential reading for every pastor and for any seeking to bless and minister to those with same-sex attraction in our churches.”
—Sam Allberry, Author, Is God Anti-Gay?
“[Many] have adopted the position that homosexual desire may in some sense be ‘normal.’ . . . Denny Burk and Heath Lambert address that idea with biblical clarity and godly wisdom. This is an important book about an issue that has overwhelmed our culture.”
—John MacArthur, Pastor and Teacher, Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, California
“A bold and provocative book. . . . But predominantly a loving book that seeks to help people with unwanted homosexual desires be transformed by the full knowledge that God’s grace for us in Christ is sufficient for all our various struggles.”
—Rosaria Butterfield, Author, The Secret Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert
