M/M Faith-based romance. Mild sexual content. For readers ages 16 and up.
“His fears took him away. His heart brought him back.”
What if homosexuality wasn’t a sin? What if the “clobber” passages in the Bible had been grossly misinterpreted? What if it really was “okay to be gay”? What if God “didn’t” hate homosexuals?
These are questions youth pastor Dean Mitchell has addressed, and come to learn the damage he has caused the young people of his former church while heading up the Purity program—a conversion therapy course for Christian youth experiencing same-sex attraction.
When Dean returns to his home church after being away for two years, no one is prepared for what he has to say. His heart is torn when he comes face to face with Nicholas Blake, the young man he had fallen in love with while attempting to help him overcome his homosexuality. Nicholas Blake—who is now engaged to a woman and, to all intents and appearances, “healed” of his homosexuality.
Now, Dean must deal with his own wounded heart as he struggles to come to terms with his feelings about the young man and his newfound happiness with a woman, and his possible expulsion from the church he loves so dearly.
BIOGRAPHY *I write M/M book under two names: A.M. Snead and CJ Bishop.
I began writing gay romance in late September 2012 and have been in love with the "boys" ever since. My books touch on difficult subjects that I strive to handle with grace and compassion. My books aren't for everyone as they are deeply emotional and often reach into the darkest corners of the human psyche. But I always guarantee a "Happy Ending" - my reward to the reader for pushing through the pain.
I am a Christian and I believe that God's love covers all, and that He created all love to be beautiful. Too often, LGBT people are told that God hates them and they're going to hell. I'm here to debunk that vicious lie. God LOVES you - dearly! He made you exactly as He wanted you to be, and you are precious in His sight. That is the main message I want my books to convey, even when that isn't the central theme of the story.
