One can get a good idea of the content of this book just by looking at the review curve.
John W. Robertson
Because of my Savior I am able to keep trying and face each day with faith and hope and that is what this book is trying to help us work towards!
Rachael Mulder
This book has induced so much self-shame, self-hate, and even pushed homosexuals to suicide.

Be Forewarned. This book is full of sex. Naughty sex too. If you liked Fifty Shades of Grey - check this book out. The author can't go more than two pages without mentioning sex - even when the chapter is about LYING. He's obsessed.

The whole premise of the book is that you are a terrible person. And I don't care who YOU are - it covers that. You, no matter who - are such a Colossal screwup - that it would be a literal MIRACLE if anyone ever forgave you.

Especially god.

You see. God. Hates. Sin. And YOU are a sinner. And while the book doesn't come right out and say that GOD HATES YOU. Well, he hates pretty much everything you've done and think about. So....

It might seem confusing, but I will walk you through it. God made you, in his image - but that image contains a disgusting, lazy, lying, gossiping, whore-mongering, faithless, useless sack of crap who loves Satan and "logic" more than you love Jesus Christ.

And your goal is to take out all that yucky that god created you with so that you can be exactly like god. Yes, the book talks extensively about attaining godhood. That's the ultimate goal for human beings - is to become like god.

"The natural man is an enemy of god," is a Mormon scripture that is quoted occasionally in the book. It is your job overcome that "naturalness" in order to become Super-Natural as god is. And unfortunately for us mortals, sex is the most natural thing we can do. Unless, of course, it's homosexual sex which is a "sin against nature." God, hates the natural man and the homosexual even though you'd think he'd appreciate the "unnaturalness" of it. But that would be you using your "crafty logic" you sinner. Trust me. Sex is exactly like Karate.

Format: Paperback
There are a lot of good parts about this book (remember that he was a general authority, not an apostle, and not the prophet, when he wrote this), and some that aren't quite as good. I am just going to talk about one particular weak area of the book in this review. I note here that I am only responding to about a chapter and a half of this book.

I have known quite a few homosexuals in the church, and some of them have ended up committing suicide, some have left the church, and some have devoted themselves to living a life of chastity alone, like a monk.

The tone of the chapters that talk about homosexuality are just dripping with revulsion. He calls it, repeatedly, a 'crime against nature' and the 'sin next to murder'. In actuality, President Hinckley has made it clear that there is NOT a double standard, fornication is fornication, and adultery is adultery, whether it is hetero- or homo- sexual.

In this book, the author claims that homosexuality arises from obsession with masturbation, then mutual masturbation, etc. I have known gay celibate members of the church who do not masturbate at all.

He lambasts homosexuals who feel that it was not a choice they made, saying that we are created in the image of God, and that God is not gay, therefore it has to be a choice and they are thus evil liars (I was paraphrasing in saying 'evil liars' -- his word is 'pervert' (remember, he is describing people who are claiming that they did not choose to be gay here)). The logic here is very poor -- God is also not a paraplegic diabetic, but people can be through no choice of their own as well. I don't even understand why he bothers with that discussion.

This book is amazing...for someone who is searching for truth. The book is concise and easy to read, and it has depth to it for someone willing to search. It was written by a person who has interviewed and helped many people use the repentance process to gain forgiveness. Taken as the author wrote it, it is a suggestion, not a final authority. Some of the other reviews say that the author gives inordinate amount of pages to sexual sin, yet if they really only read the first three chapters, well then that comes out to about 33%-40%, when most of the book discusses repentance and gaining forgiveness. Those reviews should be received only as an inaccurate/incomplete review and hypercritical, ironically the same thing of which they accuse the author. Can you imagine basing your review of an American restaurant on the premise that they don't serve curry? Why would a reviewer be reading a book on gaining forgiveness and bash it, unless they were the type of person who hadn't plan on doing anything to gain the forgiveness? "I want forgiveness and peace, but I don't want to change myself, and any statement that construes my behavior as wrong is offensive" At any rate, a reviewer would need to practice what is written in the book in order to state whether it worked, ie they gained forgiveness. Any other review is on a mission to preach it's own self-justification.
