This book is not only articulate, but extremely well-researched. This book offers hope to those individuals desiring a way out of homosexuality, and help to professionals desiring to give their clients the assistance they need on such a journey. For all who ever sought freedom, this book lends hope and encouragement that people can and do change. A must reading for every clinician.

The author trades on the unhappiness of those who found 'the gay lifestyle' not to their liking. This book's religious beliefs framed as psuedo-science will only convince the already converted and perhaps, the extremely gullible. Caveat emptor.

I read this book about five years into my life as an ex-gay man. I found it to be very useful and deeply moving.
The fundamental power of this book is that it's a collection of case studies. These are what the journey has looked like for other men, both their successes and failures.
I found some concrete tools that have been very useful in my goal to live a life without conflict between my sexuality and faith, and I don't know if I'd have dared try them if it hadn't been something that had come from other people's lives. I think that I've also avoided some pitfalls because of the examples illuminated here.
The compassionate and insightful narrative style is challenging but positive, always advocating healthier, more productive long-term solutions to the sexual activity I used as a short-term palliative.
I re-read my copy of this book once or twice a year and always learn something from it.
I wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone who's wondering what the path from active homosexual to Judeo-Christian morality might look like.
I think it shows what I've found, and what these examples illustrate, that it's a path of deeper meaning and richer rewards than the things we leave behind!
