Dwelling in the Land
f you struggle with same-sex attraction, or know someone who does, then this book is for you. Some Christians who think of themselves as “gay” have sought healing and sexual re-orientation. Some have chosen a freer interpretation of the biblical texts. Others don’t know where they belong, or what they should believe. Still others remain gay-identified yet choose to live as celibates. All have found that their sexual orientation strongly influences, even defines, who they perceive themselves to be. But Jeanette believes that to identify herself as “gay” does not do justice to what God has been doing in her life. As a Christian you belong to Christ. “I have been born from on high and have a completely new DNA, God’s DNA, residing in me and flowing through me,” says Jeanette. “I am no longer a sinner but a saint. I am a daughter of the King.” With intelligence, compassion and fellow-feeling Jeanette explains what it means, as a Christian who has wrestled for the whole of her adult life with same-sex attraction, to live honestly and consistently as a Bible-believing Christian.
