jane5 Stars Out Of 5Dwelling in the LandJune 27, 2016janeQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book is insightful and articulate into the battle to understand same sex attraction, homosexuality, and wholeness without watering down the Gospel message. We are called to Christ-likeness, and this book gives depth to the call to take up our cross and follow Christ. The author is clear that homosexuality is a sin. This author is also clear that turning from homosexuality and SSA is a challenging progression toward wholeness in Jesus Christ, not the end goal of heterosexual marriage.
bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: Over 65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Bringing desires under the Lordship of ChristApril 3, 2016bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: Over 65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Howard was in a same sex physical relationship when she became a Christian. She was soon convinced that God's design for sex is within heterosexual marriage and all other sexual activity is outside of God's plan for mankind. While she ended the same sex relationship, she has continued to struggle with same sex attraction. This book is her account of choosing God's ways over her own desires.
She tells her story of trying to do away with her feelings for fifteen years. She concluded that God was not going to change those feelings. She began to concentrate on trusting God and putting her own desires under His Lordship and has been doing that for the last fifteen years. She says these thirty years of following Christ have been costly but ultimately worth it. She is convinced that every believer's identity is in Christ alone and one can enjoy a full and content life in Him.
This is a very honest and encouraging book. Howard gives hope to the man or woman who chooses to be a faithful follower of Christ, who started out gay and has not reached the point of being ex-gay. She prefers the term post-gay as describing one who has stopped the sexual involvement but still has the desires. She is clear in pointing out that same sex attraction is something one experiences but does not define who they are. She has included a number of stories of people who have successfully found their way through the process of bringing their same sex attraction under the Lordship of Christ.
I recommend this book to Christians struggling with same sex attraction, wondering if God will ever change them. Howard encourages you to trust God to know what is best for you, to ...take courage as you learn to dwell in the land you have been given. (27) She has found her contentment in allowing God to have His rightful place in every area of her life, including same sex attraction. This book is full of hope for those who desire to bring every aspect of their life under the Lordship of Christ.
I received a complimentary copy of this book through Kregel for the purpose of an independent and honest review.
