Transforming Homosexuality: What the Bible Says about Sexual Orientation and Change
5 in stock
Faithful Christians today agree that the Bible forbids homosexual behaviour. But when it comes to underlying desires, the jury is out. Some Christians view homosexual desire as morally neutral, while others believe it calls for repentance and gospel renewal.
Is same-sex attraction sinful, even if it is not acted on? How we answer this urgent question determines how we counsel brothers and sisters who wrestle with same-sex desires. Denny Burk and Heath Lambert challenge misconceptions on all sides as they unpack the concepts of same-sex orientation, temptation and desire. They show that ultimately a biblical view gives hope for profound personal change, with patterns remoulded and rethought in faithfulness to Christ.
"Denny Burk and Heath Lambert have written a clear, compassionate, and thought-provoking book on how the gospel brings transformation to those struggling with homosexuality. Our hope is not the heterosexuality-or-bust shtick of reparative therapy, but the wondrous prospect of growing in holiness and Christlikeness that comes through repentance and faith."?
