I received a copy of HOPE FOR THE SAME-SEX ATTRACTED: BIBLICAL DIRECTION FOR FRIENDS, FAMILY MEMBERS, AND THOSE STRUGGLING WITH HOMOSEXUALITY by Ron Citlau from Bethany House in exchange for an honest review.
Many of my friends are homosexual. I have seen them struggle personally. I have seen their families struggle to accept them. I have seen the cruelty shown to them on a daily basis. It is disheartening.
I am religious. I find solace in religion, and while many of my homosexual friends were religious growing up, some of them have turned away because they don’t feel accepted, or worse – have been told to turn away. I found this book refreshing in that it isn’t just preaching. It reflects on the author’s personal experiences. It is written in a conversational way that keeps the chapters fast-paced.
Don’t expect an answer. Don’t expect hate. Instead, this book teaches thought, reflection, and love.I recommend this book to those who wish to think more about the topic of homosexuality.
