On this page you can see what others are saying about “Divine Eros: A Timeless Perspective on Homosexuality

“Every priest should have a copy of this book.”

Metropolitan Paul (Saliba) of Australia and New Zealand

“Joy Corey’s Divine Eros: A Timeless Perspective on Homosexuality shines with two virtues. First and foremost is the presentation of the heart of God, thirsting for the salvation of every human person, radiating from each chapter of the text. Second is the insistence to present the reader with the liberty-bestowing and unchanging truth of God (Jn. 8:32) without compromise, dilution, or alteration. What is fresh about this perspective is its fidelity to the unchanging wisdom of the Church in a time of radical cultural and religious iconoclasm. As such this text has the potential to change thinking and inspire hope. The many real-life and disposition-changing stories found here are not supposed to be possible according to the pro-homosexual propagandists of our time. Yet anyone who has knelt in the trenches like Joy has with persons suffering from same-sex erotic attraction knows that the compassion of the Lord and His saving energies reach into the depths of these very trenches in order to fill them with His life-giving waters…What is fresh about this perspective is its fidelity to the unchanging wisdom of the Church in a time of radical cultural and religious iconoclasm. As such this text has the potential to change thinking and inspire hope.”

“An excellent work for all who have lost their way and are trying to find their way back to their Creator God. Bless you for jumping the chasm of the fiery furnace creating a bridge for all trying to find their way back to the Kingdom!”

Fr. Bernard Kinnick,
St. Nicholas Orthodox Church, Spokane, WA

“Thank you so much for your very well written book. You really did your homework. You are to be commended for handling such a difficult and sensitive subject so well.”

Fr. Nicholas Neyman
St. John the Baptist Orthodox Church, ID

“The most biblical and compassionate treatment of the issue I have read to date. While not compromising the clear biblical evidence that same sex sexual activity is imcompatible with God’s designed purpose for human sexual activity it also affirms the person who is struggling with this sinful passion and proclivity and offers hope, forgiveness and transformation.”

The Rev. Timothy B. Cremeens

“Joy has put forth an answer to those asking for dialogue on the issue of Christianity and same-sex attraction. Her reasons for writing the book become apparent early on as she seeks to articulate, and testify to, the path of growing in divine love as an invitation to deep intimacy. Her contribution is a welcome perspective on these topics.”
