Editorial Reviews

Review

"One can only wish that this book had been written decades ago to give practical scriptural guidance on how to come out of homosexuality. The book blends compassion and realism, warnings and hope. I will highly recommend this book to those who struggle with homosexuality and despair of finding their way out." (Erwin W. Lutzer, Moody Church)

"The book . . . has dozens of practical and realistic suggestions for helping people change." (Christian Counseling Today)

"Coming Out of Homosexuality offers the reader far more than a vague hope of healing. It takes the issue of homosexuality by the scruff of the neck and offers realistic expectations to those in the process of overcoming their sexual difficulty. The book presents honest and practical advice to those men and women who want to move from the plateau of being an "ex" anything onto the highway of embracing their full identity in Christ." (Jeanette Howard, Reconciliation Ministries)

"This book is reassuringly frank, asking (and answering) the hard questions. I think it will be enormously helpful to Christians struggling with homosexuality and to those who seek to understand and encourage them." (Tim Stafford, author)

"For the person who has been walking through the desert of homosexuality, this book is going to be like a refreshing drink of water. I recommend it." (Rich Buhler, author and host of the nationally syndicated radio program, Table Talk)

"Coming Out of Homosexuality has much to say to both those who think leaving homosexuality is something that can be easily done and those who reject the possibility of it altogether. Through research and testimony, Davies and Rentzel convincingly show that God's power, though not immediately realized, is by no means impotent in healing the homosexual soul." (Stan Jones, Christianity Today)

One of my pastors, who loves me and also has a son in the homosexual lifestyle whom she loves dearly, lent this book to me more than 2 years ago. I still have it because I go back and re-read parts of it when I want encouragement and reinforcement. I lived a lesbian lifestyle for about seven years, but I am here to tell you that through this book (and several others), I have learned that God loves me deeply and offers real hope for permanent healing and change. I am now in a healthy heterosexual relationship. I am currently abstinent and will remain so until I marry, but look forward to a fulfilling sex-life with my future husband. I am thankful that Bob and Lori wrote this book for all of us who have the courage to let God into our hurt and believe that He can heal us and YES, CHANGE us!

I am a 17 yr. old Christian guy trying to learn Gods will for my life but I have battled with homosexual desires for years. I was praying and seeking God for help. (obviously this isn't an area you go and tell everyone about) I ordered the book and it has honestly changed my life. Bob and Lori share their personal struggles and how to overcome their temptations and desires. Teaching that as we grow spiritually in God... HE will bring change and healing into our lives. Homosexuallity is a SIN! God did not intend for us to be this way and HE HAS OFFERED HOPE! There IS a way out! This book shows and relates to many experiances common to us men and women stuggling with Homosexuality. This book is a God-SEND it will bring new light to our struggles. Keep the faith... ; )

I'm a 22y/o college student. I read this book and thought it was great. If you're a Christian and are truly seeking change, this book is for you. i was surprised by the negative reviews. As I read this book, I was floored at how the author knew exactly where I was coming from. Bob davies personally struggled with the issue of homosexuality. This book really helped me identify with my personal struggles and offered some great advice.

This is an excellent book that deals with:

Same-Sex Attractions (including those that may develop after marriage)
Emotional Dependencies
Sexual Identity
Homosexual Fantasies
How To Develop Healthy Friendships
Emotional & Sexual Abuse
Root Causes of Same-Sex Attractions
Dealing With The Past
Gender Identity
Embracing Our Gender
Real Life Stories of People Who Have Actually Become Heterosexuals

This book will give hope to those trying to leave the homosexual lifestyle and give hope to those who have never acted out on their homosexual feelings. It talks about God having masculine and feminine characteristics and how we as humans also have both masculine and feminine characteristics...and how to have a proper balance with those characteristics. Excellent help for those struggling with their identity and sexuality.

I so appreciate the way in which this book was written. First of all it was written before society became so influenced by political correctness and the untruths that have been spread about the gay lifestyle. It is factual, full of grace, truth and answers. No easy fixes here, but honest answers, illustrations and discussion for those who are committed to following Jesus and accepting what God says about sin. This book does not compromise God's word on the alter of being socially acceptable. It offers truth in love with experiential, faith-filled counsel that can be put to the test, if someone is willing to lay it all down for the sake of the cross. If someone is looking for something else, this book will not fulfill your fantasy but in reading it you might learn the value of a life lived in the light of the cross.

This book is incredibly helpful, both for those who struggle with same sex attractions, or overdependent relationships, and those who want to help others who want to be free of homosexual thoughts or behaviors. It is both practical and insightful. There is a lot of explanation of the root of these struggles. There are some practical suggestions of how to get free of these behaviors. And the many testimonies give hope of freedom that can be found. It is also an excellent book for anyone in ministry so they can be more effectively equipped to help others.

This book has been a true Godsend for me. It complements the Bible and uses Scripture throughout to ensure the true Biblical basis for its existence. This book has helped me to understand the feelings that I have had all my life are not "genetic." These feelings are the result of not having a strong masculine figure in my life to guide me as I was growing up. Here I thought I was the only person who EVER felt this way, but Bob's and Lori's insight has been in direct correlation with what has been going on with me. If you are struggling with your sexuality, whether you are a man or a woman, this is a MUST-READ! Buy this book and read the first chapter and you will know it was written about you.
