A fresh perspective on same sex attraction, Timmerman provides a very readable and thought provoking book. His emphasis on same sex needs and the demise of devoted friendship in America, as well as the taboo of male non-sexual physical contact, are all important parts of the debate that are often never addressed. The Church can gain immensely from this alternative view to alternative lifestyles.
This is one of the best books, if not THE best book I have read on the issue of same-sex attractions. The author brought up new things I had never considered but made a lot of sense. His openness in discussing his own struggles and journey was very encouraging. The book is an interesting read, but it is also a helpful and encouraging book that has helped me a lot on my own journey.
