Christian Post: Tim Wilkins, a former homosexual, says that homosexuality is an temptation, not an orientation. However, it is "unbiblical" to demand that someone must be attracted to the opposite sex or to think that they will never have another thought about the opposite sex. "For me to say that I could never be attracted to men again, or that I couldn't be tempted would mean that I'm not human, and that's just not the case."
Napa Valley Register (CA): Another review of Eva Etzioni-Halevy's new novel, Garden of Ruth. “I didn’t deviate from the biblical stories,” Etzioni-Halevy tells the Register. “The stories are brief. I built from them in my imagination but I was careful to be true to the Bible.”
