Published by iUniverseBooks
Sexual orientation has become a heated issue in our society. The call for gay rights and the confusion surrounding the church’s role in this struggle emulates much of the bewilderment experienced by homosexuals themselves. No one understands this better than Brother Timothy, a man who struggled with his sexual identity and endured social anxiety and addiction for years.Now a Franciscan Friar with the Ecumenical Franciscan Order, Brother Timothy chronicles his extraordinary journey in dealing with his sexual orientation from a difficult childhood, through sexual addiction as an adult, and finally, to the complete surrender of his life to the Lord. Written in four parts, A Child by Mercy reveals Timothy’s personal experiences from childhood through adulthood and then digs deeper into the mechanisms, psychology, and spiritual aspects of sexual identity. In addition, Timothy exposes how evangelicals and gay activists have misused key Bible texts to further their agenda, and addresses the politically charged issue of same-sex orientation and the viewpoints of the traditional church and gay rights activists. But above all, he presents foundational principles from God that can help anyone overcome addiction if they will expose their complete heart to the Lord. A moving declaration of hope and healing, A Child by Mercy will draw your heart and soul closer to a radical love for all of God’s children through its message of reconciliation.
