A Message of Hope and Grace

Sometimes in our big-picture discussions about homosexuality and same-sex marriage, we lose sight of the person in the middle of the struggle. Whether that struggler is you or someone you care about, there are two fundamental questions that need to be answered: How can someone with same-sex attraction be faithful to Jesus? And how can everyone else support and encourage them in this pursuit?

With clarity and grace, author and pastor Ron Citlau will help you think through every option the Bible offers--and what it does not. Having personally dealt with same-sex attraction, walked with others still struggling, and pastored those with gay loved ones, he encourages readers to think deeply and biblically about heterosexual marriage, singleness, celibacy, and more.

Discover the remarkable gifts God provides to the same-sex-attracted Christian who desires to faithfully follow Jesus. And learn how others can come alongside them with love, encouragement, and grace.

This week the Cross Focused Reviewers share their thoughts on Hope for the Same-Sex Attracted by Ron Citlau.

“I recommend it to people with same-sex attraction and to the people who minister to them.”
Reviewer: Robert Morton
Rating: 5 Stars

“The discussion of Citlau’s view on sexual identity compared to those of other orthodox Christians was very insightful. In fact an entire book could be devoted to it, and I would read it as well.”
Reviewer: Jonathan Roberts
Rating: 5 Stars

“The points on Why Gay Marriage Cannot Cause Human Flourishing were really good… I personally will now be more compassionate with everyone no matter what their sexual preference because God loves them and I should too!”
Reviewer: Pauline Burnes
Rating: 3 Stars

Hope for the Same-Sex Attracted is just that – a word of hope. With so much focus in the Church today upon the nature of the sin, Ron’s book is a powerful correction and reminder that the Gospel is about transformation, not condemnation. Ron has written a book that will be helpful going forward both for the same-sex struggler and the church called to welcome them in truth and love. I highly recommend it.”
Reviewer: Scott Nichols
Rating: 5 Stars

“Ron not only includes his own testimony but the testimony of several others who live out their Christian faith in spite of their same-sex attraction. He demonstrates that there is hope. He clearly articulates the gospel and the necessity of involvement in the local church. There is much worthwhile in this book, for those struggling with homosexuality and their friends, family and church leaders.”
