Mark Yarhouse gives honest and accurate answers to parents and pastors who have questions about homosexuality. Throughout the book, the author uses a new framework for understanding the issue, carefully separating the concept of "same sex attraction" from a "gay identity." In a clear and compassionate style, he explains the research regarding what causes same-sex attraction and whether or not it can be overcome. He also discusses what Christians can do when someone they know opens up to them about their homosexual attractions.
This is a new resource on homosexuality for the Christian. The book looks at various questions that have been asked by people sorting out the complicated questions surrounding the topic of homosexuality, including a Christian perspective on it; what causes sexual orientation; whether sexual orientation can change; why sexual identity is a more constructive approach than focusing on sexual orientation; and so on.
