Christian Faith and Same-Sex Attraction: Eastern Orthodox Reflections (Paperback)
Father Thomas Hopko draws on the wisdom of the Orthodox Christian Church and the Holy Scriptures to help us understand same-sex attraction, with both compassion and clarity. Combining theological and pastoral insights, this small gem will aid pastors, those who experience same-sex desires, and anyone seeking a deeper understanding of the nature of our identity and our sexuality. This book is in reality a primer on how to overcome the passions through the traditional Christian ascetic struggle, which of course applies to everyone.
This 2015 edition has a redesigned cover, as well as the addition of a new foreword and a few other minor changes throughout the text.
