Faithful Christians today agree that the Bible forbids homosexual behavior. But when it comes to underlying desires, the jury is out. Some Christians view homosexual desire as morally neutral, while others believe it calls for repentance and gospel renewal.

Is same-sex attraction sinful, even if it is not acted on? How we answer this urgent question determines how we counsel brothers and sisters who wrestle with same-sex desires. Denny Burk and Heath Lambert challenge misconceptions on all sides as they unpack the concepts of same-sex orientation, temptation, and desire. They show that ultimately a biblical view gives hope for profound personal change, with patterns remolded and rethought in faithfulness to Christ.


“A clear, compassionate, and thought-provoking book. . . . Essential reading for every pastor and for any seeking to bless and minister to those with same-sex attraction in our churches.”

Sam Allberry, Author, Is God Anti-Gay?

“[Many] have adopted the position that homosexual desire may in some? sense be ‘normal.’ . . . 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.”

John MacArthur, Pastor and Teacher, Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, California

“A bold and provocative book. . . . But 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 our various struggles.”

Rosaria Butterfield, Author, The Secret Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert
