Please leave a comment in the blog comment section below if you want to join the Spiritual Friendship by Wesley Hill book club. You are welcome to comment anonymously.
Spiritual Friendship explores gay celibate friendships or partnerships of Christians who are committed to a high view of Scripture and God’s design for sex and marriage to be for a man and a woman. The book club will be a place we can respectfully wrestle with, debate, and converse with Wesley’s thought-provoking and challenging ideas. It’s more than okay to disagree and give challenges as we sharpen each other in our understanding. Noah will be interviewing Wesley on the Flip Side Podcast in January and book club members will be welcomed to send in their questions for Wesley to answer.
