There is a way to feel the peace that God wants us to feel.
Chad Dymon
This book has induced so much self-shame, self-hate, and even pushed homosexuals to suicide.
One can get a good idea of the content of this book just by looking at the review curve.

There are a lot of good parts about this book (remember that he was a general authority, not an apostle, and not the prophet, when he wrote this), and some that aren't quite as good. I am just going to talk about one particular weak area of the book in this review. I note here that I am only responding to about a chapter and a half of this book.

I have known quite a few homosexuals in the church, and some of them have ended up committing suicide, some have left the church, and some have devoted themselves to living a life of chastity alone, like a monk.

The tone of the chapters that talk about homosexuality are just dripping with revulsion. He calls it, repeatedly, a 'crime against nature' and the 'sin next to murder'. In actuality, President Hinckley has made it clear that there is NOT a double standard, fornication is fornication, and adultery is adultery, whether it is hetero- or homo- sexual.

In this book, the author claims that homosexuality arises from obsession with masturbation, then mutual masturbation, etc. I have known gay celibate members of the church who do not masturbate at all.

He lambasts homosexuals who feel that it was not a choice they made, saying that we are created in the image of God, and that God is not gay, therefore it has to be a choice and they are thus evil liars (I was paraphrasing in saying 'evil liars' -- his word is 'pervert' (remember, he is describing people who are claiming that they did not choose to be gay here)). The logic here is very poor -- God is also not a paraplegic diabetic, but people can be through no choice of their own as well. I don't even understand why he bothers with that discussion.

Be Forewarned. This book is full of sex. Naughty sex too. If you liked Fifty Shades of Grey - check this book out. The author can't go more than two pages without mentioning sex - even when the chapter is about LYING. He's obsessed.

The whole premise of the book is that you are a terrible person. And I don't care who YOU are - it covers that. You, no matter who - are such a Colossal screwup - that it would be a literal MIRACLE if anyone ever forgave you.

Especially god.

You see. God. Hates. Sin. And YOU are a sinner. And while the book doesn't come right out and say that GOD HATES YOU. Well, he hates pretty much everything you've done and think about. So....

It might seem confusing, but I will walk you through it. God made you, in his image - but that image contains a disgusting, lazy, lying, gossiping, whore-mongering, faithless, useless sack of crap who loves Satan and "logic" more than you love Jesus Christ.

And your goal is to take out all that yucky that god created you with so that you can be exactly like god. Yes, the book talks extensively about attaining godhood. That's the ultimate goal for human beings - is to become like god.

"The natural man is an enemy of god," is a Mormon scripture that is quoted occasionally in the book. It is your job overcome that "naturalness" in order to become Super-Natural as god is. And unfortunately for us mortals, sex is the most natural thing we can do. Unless, of course, it's homosexual sex which is a "sin against nature." God, hates the natural man and the homosexual even though you'd think he'd appreciate the "unnaturalness" of it. But that would be you using your "crafty logic" you sinner. Trust me. Sex is exactly like Karate.

Format: Hardcover
It's entertaining to read the reviews for this book; they're incredibly varied. What you get out of this book will largely depend on where your heart is when you read it.

The title of this book is "The Miracle of Forgiveness". That alone should tell you some of the topics the book is to cover: sin, repentance, and finally, forgiveness through Christ and His Atonement.

Yes, this book spends a lot of time discussing sin and the various ways in which one may commit sin (although the discussion is by no means exhaustive). Much of it comes from the author's experience of many years as an ecclesiastical leader. Will this discussion make you feel guilty? Probably. It should. One of the aims of the book is to urge the reader to improve him or herself. Keep in mind, guilt isn't a bad thing. If you don't feel guilty about something you're not likely to change it. Will this discussion offend you? Possibly. If you're the sort that doesn't like to hear that what you're doing is wrong, then yes, you'll find parts of the book to be a hard read.

The author of the book is LDS. As such, there is an LDS focus to the writing, but honest-hearted, non-LDS believers in Christ will also find the book to be of value. While there is extensive quoting of LDS scripture in addition to the Bible, and LDS-related experiences, the bottom line is universal to believers in Christ: sin (any sin) makes us unworthy to return to Heaven, and it is the miracle of Christ's Atonement that enables us to become clean and return.

Read this book with a humble heart, and a desire to learn and improve yourself, and you'll discover many ways in which you need to improve yourself. You'll also have a better understanding of and appreciation for the Lord Jesus and what He has done for you.
