Honest and truthful
5 stars By Rory, Nov 18 2017
This is quite a personal book that shares the journeys of several Christians who have struggled or are currently struggling with same sex attraction. While our culture says that 'you are your sexuality', the Bible says that we can have a new identity in Christ that is bigger than your sexual preference. The thing I took out of this book is that as Christians we are all called to take up our cross and deny self, putting all kinds of sin to death, and we need to share in one anothers burdens even as we don't quite understand exactly what we each are going through.
