The Complete Christian Guide to Understanding Homosexuality: A Biblical and Compassionate Response to Same-Sex Attraction is the new 500-page tome from Joe Dallas and Nancy Heche, who happens to be the mother of former lesbian actress Anne Heche. “[T]here is some serious ugliness contained within these pages,” writes Patrick Fitzgerald. But why does Nancy have such a special interest in editing such a book?
“My interest in homosexuality can be traced to my 25-year marriage to a man who, unbeknownst to me, was living a secret second life as a homosexual,” she writes in an introductory note. “It was his AIDS diagnosis (and eventual death) that finally brought our the truth. Years later, I would be dealing with this issue again from a more public perspective as my daughter, actress Anne Heche, embarked on a well publicized lesbian affair [with Ellen Degeneres]. I have recounted these experiences more fully in my book The Truth Comes Out.”
I can’t wait to pick this one up!
