SNEAK PEEK: HOLY SEXUALITY AND THE GOSPEL by Christopher Yuan

Read the first chapter of Holy Sexuality and the Gospel.

From the author of Out of a Far Country, which details his dramatic conversion from an agnostic gay man who put his identity in his sexuality to a Bible professor who now puts his identity in Christ alone, comes a gospel-centered discussion of sex, desire, and relationships.

About Rise and Shine

When you rise from your bed, how many minutes does it take before you truly shine?
