Beyond the Shades of Gray – a book review


Book Description

Beyond the Shades of Gray is based upon Christian fundamentals and beliefs. Scripture is used to confront various aspects of this very controversial subject head-on. The author makes no apologies for the portions of this book that may seem to be more graphic in nature than your average “Christian” book. If you are a person who has ever had doubts or questions about your sexual orientation or behavior, then what the author has written here is for you. This work includes information for women, but is otherwise a book written for men, by a man, regarding his own perspective on his unwanted homosexual behaviors.

My Review

More than a few chapters in and I’ve decided I’ve bitten off more than I can chew. While I appreciate Dean Bailey’s testimony and research on the subject, this might not have been the best book for me.  I don’t and haven’t ever dealt with homosexual temptations, I decided to read this book for review out a pure curiosity considering I have friends who are homosexual. 

I don’t know that I’d recommend this book. 

So what is it that turned me off?  Hard to really put a finger on it, sorry.  Maybe that it was written by a man for men who’ve dealt with the subject matter?  Maybe I really couldn’t relate?  Maybe most of the arguments he brought up I’ve already heard?  I don’t want to discount Dean’s personal experiences in any way though, I’m sure God really did work in his life.

This book takes a very black and white stand on a subject that’s grey for me, and didn’t really sway my opinion.  Sorry I can’t give a better review than this.

I want to be as open as possible, safely anyway. If I've been set free in something, maybe I can encourage someone else to seek God and they can be free too!
