I don't like writing bad reviews. My mother said if you can't say something nice don't say anything at all but this is serious stuff. I'm struggling. Why would you buy this book unless you yourself or a friend was struggling? Coming out is hard and scary and when you think you are finally out you may still have more coming out to do! Find a therapist or a real friend. Watch Brene Brown videos on Youtube about shame and fear, especially her TED talk. If you think reading books might help - in my case I think they do - read "The Velvet Curtain, read Joe Kort books, read The City and the Pillar, Edmund White's A Boy's Own Story... but don't waste your time buying this book. I was about to give it one star but I gave it two because ultimately what do I know? This book may just be the book you were waiting for your whole life. It wasn't for me.
If anyone knows of better coming out books leave them in the comments! Thanks.
Although Troyer acknowledges his association with a formal church organization and is designated as "Rev." on the book jacket, his discussion is not in any way connected to a particular denominational group, and he references "Higher Power (God, Creator, etc.)", apparently to avoid any such limitations. It is clear that he is working more from a common sense or popular psychology framework than from a religious or spiritual perspective. This should make his book especially valuable for those who are ambivalent about that type of worldview.
I would recommend this book not only to those of the LGBTQ community who are still dealing with issues around their self-perception, but for all those who can use a healthy dose of self-evaluation and honesty - which, let's admit, is just about everyone.
