Bringing Same-Sex Attraction Under the Lordship of Christ
Some Christians who think of themselves as "gay" have sought healing and sexual reorientation. 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 celibacy. All have found that their sexual orientation strongly influences, even defines, who they perceive themselves to be.
Jeanette believes that to identify herself as "gay" does not do justice to what God has been doing in her life. Christians 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.
"Jeanette Howard has labored in ministry dealing with sexuality for decades, and is well qualified to speak to the current issues and ministry challenges involved. To read Dwelling in the Land is to soak in reasoned, clear, biblically based principles, lessons learned from a woman who's been there, done that, and is doing it well." —Joe Dallas, founder of Genesis Counseling in Tustin, California
