Product Description

Is same-sex attraction sinful, even if it's not acted on?

Some faithful Christians view homosexual desire as morally neutral, while others believe it calls for repentance and gospel renewal. Our answer determines how we counsel Christians who wrestle with these desires.

In Transforming Homosexuality, authors Denny Burk and Heath Lambert challenge misconceptions on all sides as they show how a biblical view of same-sex orientation gives hope for profound personal change.

Editorial Reviews

In Principles of Conduct, John Murray reminds us that “the line of demarcation between virtue and vice is not a chasm but a razor's edge.” In Transforming Homosexuality, Denny Burk and Heath Lambert shine scholarly and pastoral light on that razor’s edge, helping Christians discern the difference between sexual temptation and sexual lust as it bears on same sex attraction. This is a bold and provocative book. It will also likely be a controversial book. But it is predominantly a loving book that seeks to help people with unwanted homosexual desires be transformed by the full knowledge that God’s grace for us in Christ is sufficient for all of our various struggles and sins.
Under pressure from worldly trend-setters, many in the church (including several key evangelical leaders) have adopted the position that homosexual desire may in some sense be "normal." Homosexual acts are sinful, they say, but a homosexual orientation is not inherently unrighteous. In Transforming Homosexuality, Denny Burk and Heath Lambert address that idea with biblical clarity and godly wisdom. This is an important book about an issue that has overwhelmed our culture.
"Denny Burk and Heath Lambert have written a clear, compassionate and thought-provoking book on how the gospel brings transformation to those struggling with homosexuality. Our hope is not the heterosexuality-or-bust schtick of reparative therapy, but the wondrous prospect of growing in holiness and Christlikeness that comes through repentance and faith. This is essential reading for every pastor and for any seeking to bless and minister to those with same-sex attraction in our churches."
