Arthur Goldberg about this book: This book uniquely integrates what the truth of science with the Trust of the Ages concerning unwanted homosexuality and how modern psychology supports the principles set forth in our religious texts. It also explains the influence of the politically correct culture and how it has influenced the secular and religious debate on sexuality subjects. It explores many contemporary issues such as same-sex marriage, same-sex parenting, sexual reassignment surgery, incest, bestiality, and a host of other similar issues. An in-depth study as to the meanings of various biblical verses concerning sexuality are provided.The spiritual concept of "repentance" (teshuvah in Hebrew) and how it applies to healing is looked at in-depth. The book likewise looks at the conflict between one's internal values and the prevalent views of western society. The primary readers for the book are members of the general public, regardless of religion, and those who struggle with any form of sexuality issues. The hardest part of writing the book was scaling down the vast amount of material on the subject in order to put it into readable and easily accessible form. What I learned from writing the book is how cultural propaganda has influenced the thoughts of western society.
