    I have to confess this took a little while to get going for me I didn't get what I expected to begin with I thought Jackie was going to come out swinging with biblically backed arguments against homosexuality This was not that Well it was but it wasn't What I got instead was one of the most truthful vulnerable and redemptive stories I've ever heard in my life I already knew the ground floor of Jackie's stories through online sources but this was a guided tour around the hallways of her heart with a bold invitation into each room to display the glory of God Jackie shows that Christ not only became her Landlord and Saviour but the janitor too making sparkling work of the mess she made of her life Jackie layers her journey so well with poetic language that elevates the reader into the very pains joys and turbulence she experienced every along the way This book might might go over the heads of some but everyone who can read it should

    Had been eagerly anticipating this book since it was first announced Poetic raw honest soaked in truth and the pages are just bursting with the glory of God I've never read a personal story that points so outside of self Love it and would recommend Great job Jackie

    I agreed with other reviewers that the story was hard to get into at first Her story is certainly interesting but I found it difficult not because of the subject matter but because of the way she uses abstract langage both religious and poetic Religious terms are used profusely and their meaning is assumed Her love of poetry definitely comes out in her writing but for me it overcomplicates the prose and disrupts the natural rhythm of the book Why make reference to 'those who I share a last name with' instead of simply referring to 'my family' It bewilders me I had to re read over several passages to check I had the meaning rightThere is broadly speaking a lack of creativity in the chapter headings where the title represents the particular year of her life rather than basing it on a strong theme Major big life events such as marriage and children could have had a chapter to themselves but instead it pops into the story taking the reader completely unawares As a result the book feels disjointed rather than a chronological narrativeThe book is completely saturated in biblical references which normally I don't mind but do you really want to have the opening sections of a story about your life to be preceded with a study of Genesis? Is it really necessary to have so much text uoted ver batim?Her journey is one where she has become a Christian and forsaken her previous homosexual identity and perhaps the community she once felt part of Indeed the belief that homosexuality is incompatible with Christianity must have have led her to break up with her girlfriend and the book doesn't go into exploring other viewpoints such as the celebate gay Christian or the affirming gay ChristianI do appreciate and respect her story and the bravery it took to share it

    Great book from Jackie Hill Perry Love her She presents her journey honestly with no pretence which I think is exactly what we need in the Church She talks about her journey from addiction to her fleshly desires in all aspects of her life to finding the lover of her soul and learning that He as the creator has the right to decide what His creation should do Her ultimate conclusion is that she agrees with God that she was created to praise and bring glory to Him She reminds us that the ultimate fulfilment of this in a Christian should not be deemed as marriage; we all have various ministries and callings and heterosexual marriage does not necessarily feature in that; over if it does that does not mean that marriage is Heaven it is simply an imitation here on Earth of what Christ's relationship with the Church looks like when done right of courseThank you Jackie Hill Perry for this book It offers a lot of insight into the struggles of same sex attracted Christians honestly but without trying to dumb down the gospel The gospel reigns in this book
