Format: Paperback
Alan Chambers is the president of Exodus Internatinal, an organization that helps men and women leave the homosexual lifestyle, through a saving faith in Jesus Christ. Once a gay man himself, he is now a Christian, married, with a son and a daughter.

He makes no effort to justify the lifestyle or deny what the Bible says about it. He does, however, explode several popular secular myths about homosexuality. He also points out a shameful situation that exists in our churches. We send missionaries overseas, but fail to address the mission field in our own community. All too often the gay men and women who do attend church feel unwelcome, and too many times they are met with hostility and protestors. This book is geared toward churches that are willing to minister to homosexuals, and is an important resource for anyone interested in taking the gospel to the homosexual community. Alan Chambers will probably take some heat from both sides over this book, because it's about a very controversial subject. I will admit I approached it with some reservations and preconcieved opinions, most of which I learned in church. I'm glad I read it and I strongly recommend it to anyone who is interested in ministry in this sadly neglected field.

Format: Paperback
Every Christian should buy this book. Alan Chambers and the leadership team at Exodus International have created a resource for the Church that is absolutely astounding and invaluable. The book opens with words of hope, power, and truth from Paul the Apostle:

Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. (1 Corinthians 6:9-11 - ESV)

Over the years, I have known individuals who have struggled with homosexuality in the church and out of the church, some openly and others in private. I have known homosexuals in the workplace who have embraced this lifestyle and have no interest in Jesus Christ. These situations can be difficult at times to communicate the grace and uncompromising truth of Jesus Christ. How I wished I had this resource for those circumstances!

This groundbreaking book articulates better than any other evangelism book in the marketplace what it takes to effectively reach out to this community. Compassion, mercy, and the convicting truth of Christ flow from the pages of this book so that the Christian is forced to re-examine why and how they are evangelizing, how they befriend other sinners, and whether there is hypocrisy and insincerity in their approach. There are stories that will encourage and break your heart as you read about real personal battles over sin and the souls of men and women for the Gospel of Christ.

Format: Paperback
If you read this book, you should know about the parts which Alan Chambers now admits he got wrong. While Chambers was making around a hundred grand a year to sell the "change is possible" message, he never got as candid as he did later on when the donations dried up. In January 2012 Chambers told the Gay Christian Network that 99.9% of homosexuals had not changed to heterosexual. Chambers also promised to remove all links to the gay curing therapists who used porn to "cure" gays, admitting those therapies don't work and are not biblical. In June 2013 I was on the OWN TV show with Chambers when he apologized to gay people for the damages done to them by Exodus International over the decades. I was there as one of the survivors of Exodus International, and our stories were powerful and moving on the Our America special called "God and Gays'. After we got through taping, Chambers got unanimous approval from his board to shut down Exodus International forever. The original ex-gay ministry, Love in Action, did the same thing. The book Chambers wrote is written with a "compassionate" approach, which is the problem. Homosexuals are treated as sick people who need your help instead of admitting what Chambers already knew: neither he nor anyone else had experienced a change in sexual orientation.

This book is written by several people who at one time lived the homosexual lifestyle, but each of them were able, by God's grace and the help of loving Christians to get free from that lifestyle. It's a helpful book. Thanks! God bless!

5 of 9 people found the following review helpful By C. M. Harris on June 25, 2011
Format: Paperback
In the morass of mud-slinging which comprises the liberal/Leftist treatments of Christians as judgmental neanderthals, comes this book. This is the real deal, folks - which is one reason there are so many drive-by comments damning the book.

When I was growing up, I bought into the "born-gay" argument. Up until about 10 years ago, I would wonder about terms like "homosexual agenda" and same-sex marriage being an attack on children and "normal" marriage. I didn't understand how things which purportedly helped people "be whom and what they are" could be destructive. In the past 10 years, I have come to understand my life experiences and how such things fit together. I hate to think that increased maturity is requisite for such understanding, though it may well be. But rather than the dronish somewhat liberal Californian I grew up as, I am now a staunch conservative slightly right of Mark Levin, and continue to try and reconcile what I once believed with what I have come to know.

This book - which I have actually read and own - was a MAJOR assist in reconciling my past advocacy with my present knowledge that homosexuality is not the path God wants anyone winding up on. Rather than wasting time with books along the lines of "What Paul REALLY meant" and other books which, in reality, leave out much and twist the rest, this book - from people who have walked the walk - has been given us to know better how to live our lives, worship God in accordance with the Bible and history, and treat others well. This book more closely answers, IMO, What Would Jesus Do? in reconciling the sinners and those who judge, while navigating the wiser road of discernment.
