My aim in writing this book is to tell how I broke with a sexually active homosexual life, as well as the process of change I experienced after I left that life.
^^I wasn't seeking change; I wouldn't have thought change was possible until it began to happen in me. My experience has been that, as what I consider to be contributing factors of my homosexual condition were dealt with, a significant measure of change occurred in my sexuality. I am not saying this happens for all, but it has happened for me.
^^Over time many people have asked me how they can best help other Christians who struggle with unwatned same-sex attraction. So as well as my own story, I have included information about what one can do if they have a homosexual friend or relative.
^^My hope and prayer is that as you read this book you will cleary see the love, the gentleness, and the incredibly caring way in which God has worked in my life - a life that was very broken. I offer this book as a testimony to a love that is available to all, from a God who cares for all.
This compelling and thoughtfully written book describes one person's journey out of homosexuality. It is the author's own intimate story of personal transformation in the context of a loving relationship with God. Chris Keane writes with disarming honesty and compassion, as he acknowledges the damage done to the gay community by some sectors of the church, as well as the serious divisions within the Christian community over homosexuality. His book is a moving plea for greater understanding within both the church and the wider community. Choices will speak to anyone who is struggling with their sexual orientation, and is also essential reading for family, friends, and church communities who would like to better understand and love those with a homosexual orientation.
