Written in a moderate tone, this book offers insights into sexuality and sexual identity and how these can be understood in the context of sanctification and redemption. At a practical level, readers will learn ways to track patterns of same-sex attraction, manage their environment, exchange old scripts that have shaped their sexual identity for new, and consolidate gains they have made in their sexual identity and behavior. The focus of this book is on helping people live in a way that is consistent with their beliefs and values regarding homosexual behavior. It is a practical resource for people who live in what Christians think of as the 'time between the times,' when a person knows their victory is secure but anticipates the day then their victory is complete.
