Ever wonder how to handle the tough ethical issues we face?
The Only Way Is Ethics is an accessible, practical series of guides designed to equip both new and mature Christians to think through important and current ethical issues in the light of the Bible and theology. It offers help to Christians facing these issues themselves and for ministers as they provide guidance.
Each guide (also available separately in print or as an e-book) has a 'Go Deeper' section listing resources for further reference.
Sean Doherty has provided us with a remarkable resource. It is remarkable, first, because it is deeply rooted in his own experience and reflection as someone who has experienced same-sex attraction. But it is also remarkable for the way it is fully engaged in contemporary research and discussion. Sean manages to connect and integrate his own experience with the best thinking in this area. Finally, Sean offers an account that is remarkably accessible and which will be of help to a wide range of people. It is one of the best resources out there.

In Living Out My Story, Sean tells us his own story of same-sex attraction which he uses to illuminate his discussion of homosexuality, same-sex marriage and the church. He shows how churches can provide a loving welcome and acceptance of gay people whilst being faithful to Jesus's teaching about sex.
