Product Description

Terms like same-sex marriage, sexual orientation, gender identity, and gay Christian are part of daily discourse; yet enormous controversy surrounds them. They are the stuff of news headlines and vitriolic social media posts. But they also reflect stirrings of the heart in real people with real questions and concerns.

Rosaria Champagne Butterfield, once a leftist professor in a committed lesbian relationship and now a confessional Christian, but always the thoughtful and compassionate professor, has written a follow up to The Secret Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert.This book answers many of the questions people pose when she speaks at universities and churches, questions not only about her unlikely conversion to Christ but about personal struggles that the questioners only dare to ask someone else who has traveled a long and painful journey.

Dr. Butterfield not only goes to great lengths to clarify some of today's key controversies, she also traces their history and defines the terms that have become second nature today--even going back to God's original design for marriage and sexuality as found in the Bible. She cuts to the heart of the problems and points the way to the solution, which includes a challenge to the church to be all that God intended it to be, and for each person to find the true freedom that is found in Christ.

  • Conversion: the Spark of a New Identity
  • Identity: the Flame of Our Union in Christ
  • Repentance: the Threshold to God and the Answer to Shame, Temptation, and Sin
  • Sexual Orientation: Freud's 19th Century Category Mistake

    "This book deals with some of the most difficult and incendiary questions with wit, joy, maturity, and, above all, radiating love. If you're struggling with sexual sin, this book will help you. If you are gripped with guilt from your past, this book will strengthen you. If you don't know how to love or bear witness to your neighbors, this book will equip you. Like Jael of old, Rosaria wields the tent peg of the gospel against deception and accusation. And, with this book, she nails it." --Russell Moore, president Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission

    "Who is Rosaria Butterfield? A wife? A mother? A former tenured English professor? A former lesbian? Yes, all of these. But, fundamentally, and most importantly, she is a child of God, who belongs to Jesus Christ. That is her chief identity; and that identity makes all the difference in the world as she approaches the sensitive and difficult topic of sexual sin.... Openness Unhindered is a courageous book, warmly written, theologically rich, and precisely what the church needs right now." --Mark Jones, minister and author of A Christian's Pocket Guide to Jesus Christ
