While the first book centered on healing the rift between sexuality and spirit, the second will explore how our identities are chosen or formed by forces beyond our choice, and what makes them authentic.

The main character is Peter, the man whom Julian loves and tries to win in "Two Natures". (No spoilers—read it and see if he succeeds!) While working as a mentor in a transitional home for at-risk youth, Peter collaborates with a teenage bi-gendered artist on a gay superhero comic, whose themes start to parallel traumatic memories he's unearthing. Peter's controversial discoveries challenge Julian to confront beliefs he's internalized from his Southern Baptist upbringing, such as the "ex-gay therapy" myth that homosexuality is a curable disorder caused by abuse.(less)
