Editorial Reviews

Review

"One of the great movements in our time is that of the ex-homosexuals and ex-lesbians. These are broken people who have admitted their brokenness and found true happiness--not the so-called ‘gay' lifestyle--but by living for Jesus Christ. One such man is Alan Chambers, currently president of the largest umbrella organization of ex-homosexuals, Exodus International. Alan Chambers' book provides believers with Christian and loving (but uncompromising) answers to this controversial issue."
--D. James Kennedy, Ph.D., senior minister, Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church


"I can't think of anyone more knowledgeable to lead someone out of sexual bondage than Alan Chambers. He is a man of integrity and compassion. His heart, life, and words are full of wisdom. He has personally touched my life with his kindness and love for God. It is friends like Alan I want everyone to get to know. In order to introduce you to this godsend to our nation, I highly recommend God's Grace and the Homosexual Next Door."
--Dennis Jernigan, composer, author, former homosexual


"If you're a believer who's touched by this issue--and these days, who isn't?-- then you'll be as excited as I am about this book. It doesn't come a moment too soon."
--Joe Dallas, author of Desires in Conflict and The Game Plan


"This is a wonderful book--unapologetic truth wrapped with tenderness and compassion. I'm grateful to Alan Chambers and his associates for providing the biblical and practical insight and help the church needs. I'm thankful for this book and enthusiastically recommend it to you."
--Dr. Robert Wolgemuth, author of She Calls Me Daddy


"I am so grateful this book is finally available. With wisdom, knowledge, and grace, Alan offers those who struggle with their sexuality and those who love them a place to stand. It is with other broken people, welcomed into the life changing love of God. For those who long to understand the heart of God to the homosexual community and how to share that love, this book is a gift."
--Sheila Walsh, Women of Faith keynote speaker


"It's an excellent resource book, whether you're a Christian concerned about your homosexual friends and family members, or if you're involved in a church that's willing to minister. Christ died for everyone. We sin when, through hatred or fear we refuse to minister to the lost just because they make us uncomfortable. Alan Chamber's God's Grace and the Homosexual Next Door is an important resource for anyone interested in taking the gospel to the homosexual community, and one I strongly recommend."
--Barbara Warren, author


"Thank you for being so open and real with your readers and for showing the church how to have the same compassion toward others as Christ has toward each of us."
--Shannon Ethridge, MA

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.

Half way though the book and I feel it offers good information on understanding homosexuals and gives good advice how to reach out to them in love and not in a judgmental way. There is a lot of misinformation out there and I found this book very helpful. I am glad I purchased it.

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!

Fantastic! easy read and well written with plenty to substantiate the writings by the team

To Know that Gods love for the Gay community is right up there helps get rid of those middle classe white church pre concieved ideas about the Gay community!

Where would you find Jesus sitting? you got it right with the sinners ( which included you and me of course!)

Great coffee table book to leave lying around also
