Within the pages of his new book, Gay...or Not? One Christian Man’s Journey, ($14.99, paperback, 9781498436243; $7.99, e-book, 9781498436250) seventy-year-old Jerry tells his life story-how he struggled against unwanted same-sex attraction through college, Army, seminary, and early marriage. With the help of God and of his ever-forgiving wife, Rosie, he eventually found sexual freedom and fulfillment in his marriage and in his career as a chaplain. Not only has Jerry been freed from homosexuality, but he’s also been freed to experience an ever-deepening intimacy with the God who rescued him.
“The way to freedom from unwanted same-sex attraction is by pursuing a deepening intimacy with Jesus Christ, resulting in gradual and significant transformation of one’s whole life,” states the author. “Among the many LGBT-themed books available, this one is the rare first-person story of a man who successfully overcame unwanted same-sex attraction and enjoys a growing and fulfilling forty-year marriage.”
