Weaving together reflections from his own life and the lives of other Christians, such as Henri Nouwen and Gerard Manley Hopkins, Hill offers a fresh perspective on these questions. He advocates neither unqualified "healing" for those who struggle, nor their accommodation to temptation, but rather faithfulness in the midst of brokenness. "I hope this book may encourage other homosexual Christians to take the risky step of opening up their lives to others in the body of Christ," Hill writes. "In so doing, they may find, as I have, by grace, that being known is spiritually healthier than remaining behind closed doors, that the light is better than the darkness."
I HIGHLY recommend this book to all, but especially "gay Christians".
In his book, Wesley Hill, a celibate gay Christian, shares his struggle with sin and how the Bible gives hope, not condemnation for people who share his struggle.
As does Wesley Hill, and I hope you will take the time to listen to his story.
