Item Description...
Overview
Help and hope for men . . . undermined by silent fathers harassed by pornography and sexual temptation afraid of failing those they love most angered by past relationships with women Help and hope for women . . . lost in their relationships with others betrayed by fathers, husbands or male leaders wounded by sexual assault paralyzed by self-hatred Andrew Comiskey sees our weakness as "a threshold for holy power"--the point at which God can meet us for healing and equip us for service. He has seen it happen again and again. During many years of ministry, Comiskey, his wife, Annette, and their fellow "strugglers" have accompanied hundreds of wounded men and women to transformation at the cross of Christ. Telling real-life stories of despair, hope and lasting change, Comiskey lays out the foundations for healing from relational and sexual sin. With chapters focusing on particular areas of vulnerability for men and women, on the battle over homosexuality in church and culture, and on the essential role of the church in ongoing healing, Strength in Weakness makes clear the way to the cross--God's sufficient answer to our deepest needs.

Comiskey started a support group for ex-gays at the Vineyard Santa Monica; with the encouragement of the pastor, Comiskey started his own ex-gay organization called Desert Stream Ministries. In 1981, Comiskey became a pastor in the Vineyard Christian Fellowship. Later, Comiskey and Desert Stream would move and become part of Vineyard Anaheim.[5] In the following years, Comiskey continued his work as a pastor and leader of Desert Stream Ministries. Comiskey cites Leanne Payne as a major influence. Comiskey gives seminars on avoiding homosexual relationships and behaviors and has written four books on the subject; Comiskey's Pursuing Sexual Wholeness became one of the most popular books on the topic.[6] Comiskey and his wife now have four children.[7]

In 2005, Comiskey left Southern California and moved to Kansas City where he continues to lead Desert Stream Ministries.

Really Useful  Mar 24, 2006
I found this book really useful in coming to grips with my own sexual brokenness. Not just for same-sex attractions, this gets at the root of why some people act as they do -- in often despairing, dissapointing ways, and this book helps provide insight to move beyond the guilt.
 
A solid read on an important topic  Nov 3, 2005
This is a solid book for those seeking to recover from relational brokenness and sexual wounding. I was impressed with Comiskey's understanding of the human condition, and specifically how imbalances in intimate relationships cause tremendous and long-lasting harm. He is a sharp thinker and has many useful ideas for people to work through their struggles.

I was also impressed that he didn't sensationalize the aspects of sexual sin (much of which I find disappointing in other books on this topic). He is frank and honest, but much more realistic and sincere about the underlying problems of relational and sexual sin than the wealth of authors who find tantilizing stories to needlessly illustrate what could easily be stated and understood in simpler forms. Some think that they need gross excesses in detail to build a relationship with readers who are struggling. You won't find that here. What you find is a friend who you can trust; someone who struggles but is more concerned with finding hope in that struggle and glorifying God.

That said, I didn't give it five stars because I think it needs a little editing. Some parts are a little wordy, others have references/quotes from people who aren't not entirely connected to the material. I'm not sure what his fascination is with John Paul II or Karl Barth, but they have an unusually large proportion of the supporting material.

All in all though, a good book, well worth reading and discussing.
