Out: One Christian’s Experience of Leaving the Gay Community (Kregel, October 2016)
A profound personal journey
Bob Fife was raised in a dysfunctional home and, despite an early conversion to Christianity, had an uneasy young life. Nothing prepared Bob for being sexually molested by an older boy he trusted–or for what happened in his heart afterward. Out is the story of how Bob’s life changed when he decided to come out as gay and changed again when he chose a different path.
From the confusion of his teen years, to his marriage and fatherhood, to his discovery and embrace of the flamboyant Toronto gay scene, we follow Bob along his increasingly indulgent path. He even abandoned his young family to follow his new lifestyle around the world. But an unexpected visit from his college-aged son over a decade later caused Bob to confront the consequences of his excesses—and find his way back to a restored relationship with the God who loves him.
For those seeking to deal with their same-sex attractions, not celebrate them, Bob’s fascinating story points a way to grace and redemption.
