Reading List

Listed is literature for Christians looking for more information on same-sex attraction and chastity. These readings are highly recommended (and some even written) by Courage leaders. This can be an excellent starting point for those seeking a greater understanding of the root causes of homosexuality and how we, as Christians, are called to live chaste lives in Jesus Christ.
