In the article “Prop 8, California's Same-Sex Marriage Ban, Declared Unconstitutional,” The Huffington Post reported on recent legislation on gay marriage laws. It is into this debate that author Dean Bailey adds his new book “Beyond the Shades of Gray: Because Homosexuality is a Symptom, Not a Solution” (published by WestBow Press).

"Beyond the Shades of Gray" is based on Bailey’s own experiences with homosexual feelings.

“As a man who grew up having come through this inward struggle myself, I can especially identify with you younger men out there, who are now at the point of trying to either deny or to accept those inward passions we've felt, that long so deeply for the love and acceptance of another male, human being. I know that sometimes they can drive you to the point that you feel like a worthless person, while at other times you feel alone and incomplete until you've satisfied them somehow. I also know what it feels like to seem to have no choice or control at all over these passions and emotions—and what it is like to keep them all bottled up inside, as they are fighting to get out. Even in a large crowd of friends, these feelings can often make us feel as though we are all alone… What we long for is a deep and heartfelt sense of brotherhood.” – Dean Bailey

What differentiates “Beyond the Shades of Gray” from other books is its genesis. “I experienced homosexual desires and longings and found a real and genuine restoration of my sexuality through the Christian faith, and through genuine Christian companionship,” says Bailey. “This is not some ‘pray and be free’ approach.”
