Homosexuality, gay identity, and same-sex attraction are increasingly important counseling issues for evangelicals who desire to engage the cultural conversation of our day. If someone didn't choose to be attracted to the same sex, can they choose not to be same-sex attracted? Does counseling work? Is it disordered, or just different, or sinful? What influence might an absent or distant father have upon sexual attraction and sexual identity? What influence might sexually abuse or premature sexualization have?
Sam Williams addresses these questions and many more with grace, truth, and the insight of an experienced counselor in his faculty lecture at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, NC, delivered October 20, 2011.
