God made sexuality. It is a gift and stewardship from God. But his purpose for our sexuality has been distorted by sin. Gavin Peacock and Owen Strachan encourage us to look at what God says about homosexuality, but also at the glorious truth of Christ’s defeat of sin and redemption of our identities.
Gavin is associate pastor at Calvary Grace Church of Calgary, and the Director of International Outreach for CBMW. He played football professionally for Chelsea and Newcastle Utd.
Owen is Associate Professor of Christian Theology at MBTS in Kansas City, Missouri. He is the Director of the Center for Public Theology at MBTS and author of ‘Reenchanting Humanity: A Theology of Mankind’.
The terrible times of the last days are dominated by ‘feel good’ culture which has misled millions onto the destructive super–highway of illicit sex in its different forms. From Scripture, research and the experiences of individuals Peacock and Strachan expose the lies that tried and tested societal norms are bad and ‘follow your heart’ is good. This series is humble and hard–hitting – saying what needs to be said but which many Christian leaders have been afraid to say. However, this is no mere condemnatory diatribe pointing the finger. These pages are full of compassion. There is practical help for those struggling and a triumphant note that though sexual sin is overwhelming the power of the Lord Jesus Christ is greater. This is a very valuable piece of work.

Here is an extremely timely book for the cultural crisis in which we find ourselves. Addressing the issue of human sexuality head on, Owen Strachan and Gavin Peacock have delivered a brilliant analysis of the present day crisis over personal sexuality and gender issues. Not only do they make the right diagnosis, they also prescribe the one and only cure for this devastating problem. They offer the transforming power of the saving and sanctifying grace of God. You need to be conversant with the unchanging truths in this book.

Owen Strachan and Gavin Peacock are men full of biblical wisdom and conviction. And that’s precisely what the church needs in this hour. The authors bring their wisdom and conviction to bear in this work as they engage some of the most pressing issues confronting the church. I heartily recommend this work to every gospel minister—and the church members they serve.

Technology often only conspires with our wandering and warped passions to leave us in a state of enslavement and despair. However, this trilogy of books points to God’s word as our only hope through its holistic teaching on sexuality and through the gospel of God’s redeeming grace. I cannot too highly recommend a prayerful study of these books. They might prove a life–saver!
