Publisher's Summary

“I used to be a lesbian.”

In Gay Girl, Good God, author Jackie Hill Perry shares her own story, offering practical tools that helped her in the process of finding wholeness. Jackie grew up fatherless and experienced gender confusion. She embraced masculinity and homosexuality with every fiber of her being. She knew that Christians had a lot to say about all of the above. But was she supposed to change herself? How was she supposed to stop loving women, when homosexuality felt more natural to her than heterosexuality ever could?

At age 19, Jackie came face-to-face with what it meant to be made new. And not in a church, or through contact with Christians. God broke in and turned her heart toward him right in her own bedroom in light of his gospel.

Listen in order to understand. Listen in order to hope. Or listen in order, like Jackie, to be made new.

Centre Stage: The Gospel

Jackie succeeds and excels in holding up the gospel of Jesus, as worked out in her life, for all to see and give glory to God. This is a story about a girl, and about gayness, but above all it is about God. And he is so good!

Profound, raw and beautiful

A heart after God's own heart. That is the message here with eye and heart opening witness. A true jem that everyone should give their time to listen to and soak in.

Phenominal

Honestly, I was scared to listen to this one. As a heterosexual long time Christian I didn't want to get "yelled at" for all of the idiotic ways Christians have sinned against, mis-represented the Bible and Jesus to their Gay neighbors and I was terrified also that the author (one I am familiar with hearing from through various conferences and speaking engagements) would suddenly say something that would make me confused or doubtful about what the Bible says and Who God is.

This book did none of the above. In fact, it did the opposite. This book simply is her story weaved with scripture and the truth of Who God really is and What He has done for all of us. This book defined Womanhood in a beautiful gospel-driven way. This book pointed me to Christ and what He has done to transform all sinners into saints. It's a must read wherever you are in your faith. Believer or not, Gay or straight, this author has something valuable to say and it's quick read is well worth the time it takes to listen.

MUST READ/LISTEN

My words fail to describe Jackie’s honesty of her walk and her commitment to the Word. This is a must read for the same sex attracted Christian, same sex attracted non-Christian who feels the evidence of Christ’s tugging on their hearts, and the family member and friends of the two.

Eye Opening

First, amazing book! It is well written and paints a picture of what it truly looks like to follow Christ even though trying times. I felt as though she was speaking to my heart. I recommend this read for everyone no matter your race, ethnicity, gender, or sexuality. This was truly humbling!

Absolutely Beautiful

I couldn't help but cry multiple times as I listened to this woman speak about God's true nature. This little book sheds a new light on how heterosexual Christians can better love and understand and witness the love of Jesus Christ to the gay community. Saturated in scripture, the love of God, and the love for same sex attracted men and women, my eyes have been opened to how much I did not understand - though this book is a Christian woman's testimony, I almost felt like I could fill in the blanks with multiple aspects of sin that I struggle with in my daily life. This book points directly at who Jesus is, how much He loves us. and how incredibly difficult yet, overwhelmingly joyous choosing to follow Him can be. Thank you Jesus.

Raw, Real and Redemptive

What I am about to say is not hyperbole. This book is in my Top Five of the best books I have ever listened to, read, heard of, etc. Jackie Hill Perry shares such vulnerability from her heart while giving an outstanding performance of the words she has written. I have often wondered what the metrics might be on how humans put words and phrases together. Most people use many of the same phrases to describe life or events, without much creativity. Hill Perry has leaped high over that fence, writing so eloquently as she shares her very raw, yet very real story. This is not a book about judgement or criticism; it is the personal story of one woman who, in finding out how much she is loved by her Creator God, finds redemption in the truth of His word. Her story rocked my soul.

W o w

I'm sure there's a lot of preconceived ideas of what this book could be about and contain, but I really doubt it comes close to containing anything that you would think! I finished this in two days. It is amazing, read very well by the author, and contains truth that pertains to all sin not just the sin of homosexuality. I'm going to recommend it to everyone!

The Raw, Un-Sugar Coated Truth

I loved this book. Mrs. Perry did a fine job of demonstrating how homosexuality is less a sin so powerful that everyone doesn’t know how to deal with, but more of a sin just like all other sin with the core being one thing: unbelief. Mrs. Perry does a fine job of presenting the LOVE for God as the primary focus when dealing with not just homosexuality but also all other sin. She really shows how God is much more interested in us enjoying Him in freedom than He is making everyone straight. Simply put, God wants to show mankind that He truly is—in all aspect of body, soul, and spirit—enough for each and everyone one of us.

Amazing

This book is so incredibly helpful and inspiring. As a woman who struggles with same sex attraction I definitely needed this in my life. I listened to it in one day!

Definitely not what you think it is.

One of the most beautifully written books ever listened to! Very easy to listen to and extremely hard to put down. The conviction in her words and her voice are powerful. What I enjoyed most is that you substitute your struggle for hers and this book would not lose its impact.

This book is amazing.

The tone of the book points to how good God is and how powerful the gospel is.
