An empathetic understanding of homosexual attraction

Washed and Waiting by Wesley Hill

Washed and Waiting: Reflections on Christian Faithfulness and Homosexuality

I’ve been reading various blogs today about Andy Stanley’s recent sermon illustration that included a homosexual couple (see part 5, beginning around 24:25) and Al Mohler’s response to that illustration.

All of this has got me thinking about Wesley Hill’s book Washed and Waiting: Reflections on Christian Faithfulness and Homosexuality. (Hill has blogged for us before, and we also ran a blog tour for his book.) One of the unique benefits that comes with working in publishing is that publishers are constantly blessed with the opportunity to hear new ideas from thought leaders. Throughout the process of marketing Hill’s book I was blessed and challenged to consider what it might be like to struggle with same-sex attraction, yet want to remain celibate and honor God. It helped me gain what Hill calls an “empathetic understanding.” Watch the video below to learn more.
