Gay Girl, Good God: The Story of Who I Was, and Who God Has Always Been Reviews

    A beautiful memoir and must read even if you think you would relate little to none to her story. I'm not into hip hop or spoken word. I'm not gay (or was). I am a man. I didn't grow up dealing with any of the circumstances like Jackie did. There is very little reason to read this e...

    For those fellow LGBT Christians: this book is nothing new. It is the same old ?love the sinner, hate the sin? rhetoric we have heard for many years. The author doesn?t believe herself being gay is a sin, but that engaging in lesbian relationships is. As a bisexual and trans Chri...

    I don't know how I ran across Jackie Hill Perry, but after hearing her story...and how she talked about her story, I wanted to know more. I've listened to numerous interviews with her and always walk away not as interested in her ex-gay conversation but instead her talk about God. T...

    I hope anyone who is looking at these reviews wondering if this book could help them ?pray away the gay? or anything along the lines of that sees this comment. Your sexuality, no matter gay, straight or something in between isn?t something to be ashamed of. Love is love, and I?...

    I like Jackie and appreciate her music but this book was only Okay. I found the chapter on the so called "heterosexual gospel" to be rather misguided and unhelpful. She wants to guard against the idea that gays must become straight in order to become Christians (the Galatian heresy of ...

    God is good. No matter what we do, or who we think we are, God will never change. This is a beautiful testimony of a woman who found that God was more important than anything we hold dear. She wants us to see, as she did, that God wants us, all of us, all our actions, thoughts, and...

    It's difficult to rate a person's memoir and how they view their own life. However, reading this critically as both a Christian and a member of the LGBTQ community, I found some aspects hard to swallow. First, Jackie seems to avoid the use of the term "sexual orientation" and uses the ...

    This book is amazing and humbling. I?m going to be reading it again this week. I read another review on here that if you replace the word ?gay? with any other idols of your heart, this book can reorient your heart to worshipping God. It?s completely true! I fell more in...

    Jackie?s testimony is powerful. Also, if you replace ?gay? with whatever your personal idol is, really good book about worshipping God instead of gods. Convicting book, whether you are gay or not. ...

    Basically: This story touches on so many important, and misunderstood, issues?same-sex attraction, biblical femininity, repentance, sanctification, evangelism?and Jackie is an honest, winsome, and humble storyteller. Something I've been wrestling with a lot recently is what it m...

    JHP is an unashamed poet. She encouraged me spiritually and relationally through the power of words... I?m not often moved by someone?s interpretation of Jesus, but she writes as if I?m her confidante and it prostrated me before Him. For instance, I told a friend I was weary o...

    ?Oh no? I thought[? here we go again?. Yet another memoir on being a gay Christian. But I had heard this girl was good?..so I ordered Gay Girl, Good God in the hope that it might not be bad. I was wrong?.it is superb! This is the book that Vicky Beeching should have written...

    This book was by far the best book I've read this year. Jackie's writing is exquisite, but more than that her portrayal of our good God and His sustaining grace allowing us to overcome sin, was life changing. This is about SO much more than gayness, although it was fascinating to under...

    I had never heard of this author until this book. I was intrigued by the title and its being promoted by a few blogs I follow. Before I give my review, I must say that my liking the book does not make me a fan of the author?s rap music, nor do I completely agree with her view on soci...

    It is hard to write a review for a book you love so much, that is full of truth and eloquently, poetically written. Never could I do it justice with my feeble words. But let me say this: this is a book for everyone. It is not primarily about sexuality, but about sin and truth, redempti...

    I loved this book. The context is same sex attractedness, but it is about so much more than that. The author does a fantastic job of making all sin and all joy about the gospel. For those who struggle with homosexuality, the goal is not to suddenly be made straight or to end up getting...

    Jackie Hill Perry has a gift: the ability to speak the simple, profound truth of the gospel. Though we also need the deep biblical scholars who mine the nuances of Scripture, we also need the voices of people like Jackie who can speak the truth simply and with power. Gay Girl, Good ...

    Knowing Jackie Hill Perry mostly for her spoken word work, I don't know why I was surprised to see that "Gay Girl, Good God" was so poetic. Jackie tells her life story in an incredibly compelling way that will keep you hooked. And when she's done, she keeps the amazing work at the part...

    This book is one of the most beautifully written books I have ever read. Its prose and poetry, and lyricism spoke to parts of my mind, heart, and soul that often go untouched in memoirs like these. So snaps for that. But to be honest going deeper than that is easy- Jackie's story reso...

    Listened to this on audio (Jackie reads it herself and she is a compelling reader/speaker.) This is worth the listen/read - a story of God?s goodness that we can all relate to with practical encouragements for the church. ...

    I loved this book. The context is same sex attractedness, but it is about so much more than that. The author does a fantastic job of making all sin and all joy about the gospel. For those who struggle with homosexuality, the goal is not to suddenly be made straight or to end up getting...

    Every Christian should read this book. Not only is the content beautiful and glorifying to God, but it is also a non-fiction book that reads like fiction. Jackie's writing style is poetic, she helps you see what she says. I found myself praising God throughout the pages. I hope many mo...

    I have been following Jackie Hill Perry a while now after running into an excerpt of her writing. I have been concerned about the attitudes of the Christian church towards the LBGT community and her insight was new and refreshing. I really appreciated hearing Jackie's testimony of how ...

    Jackie Hill Perry has a gift: the ability to speak the simple, profound truth of the gospel. Though we also need the deep biblical scholars who mine the nuances of Scripture, we also need the voices of people like Jackie who can speak the truth simply and with power. Gay Girl, Good ...

    A beautiful memoir and must read even if you think you would relate little to none to her story. I'm not into hip hop or spoken word. I'm not gay (or was). I am a man. I didn't grow up dealing with any of the circumstances like Jackie did. There is very little reason to read this e...

    For those fellow LGBT Christians: this book is nothing new. It is the same old ?love the sinner, hate the sin? rhetoric we have heard for many years. The author doesn?t believe herself being gay is a sin, but that engaging in lesbian relationships is. As a bisexual and trans Chri...

    I don't know how I ran across Jackie Hill Perry, but after hearing her story...and how she talked about her story, I wanted to know more. I've listened to numerous interviews with her and always walk away not as interested in her ex-gay conversation but instead her talk about God. T...

    I like Jackie and appreciate her music but this book was only Okay. I found the chapter on the so called "heterosexual gospel" to be rather misguided and unhelpful. She wants to guard against the idea that gays must become straight in order to become Christians (the Galatian heresy of ...

    God is good. No matter what we do, or who we think we are, God will never change. This is a beautiful testimony of a woman who found that God was more important than anything we hold dear. She wants us to see, as she did, that God wants us, all of us, all our actions, thoughts, and...

    It's difficult to rate a person's memoir and how they view their own life. However, reading this critically as both a Christian and a member of the LGBTQ community, I found some aspects hard to swallow. First, Jackie seems to avoid the use of the term "sexual orientation" and uses the ...

    This book is amazing and humbling. I?m going to be reading it again this week. I read another review on here that if you replace the word ?gay? with any other idols of your heart, this book can reorient your heart to worshipping God. It?s completely true! I fell more in...

    Jackie?s testimony is powerful. Also, if you replace ?gay? with whatever your personal idol is, really good book about worshipping God instead of gods. Convicting book, whether you are gay or not. ...

    Basically: This story touches on so many important, and misunderstood, issues?same-sex attraction, biblical femininity, repentance, sanctification, evangelism?and Jackie is an honest, winsome, and humble storyteller. Something I've been wrestling with a lot recently is what it m...

    JHP is an unashamed poet. She encouraged me spiritually and relationally through the power of words... I?m not often moved by someone?s interpretation of Jesus, but she writes as if I?m her confidante and it prostrated me before Him. For instance, I told a friend I was weary o...

    ?Oh no? I thought[? here we go again?. Yet another memoir on being a gay Christian. But I had heard this girl was good?..so I ordered Gay Girl, Good God in the hope that it might not be bad. I was wrong?.it is superb! This is the book that Vicky Beeching should have written...

    I read Jackie Hill Perry?s #GayGirlGoodGod book for my own personal reasons, and really enjoyed her heart for God, her husband, and other people who are having a hard time with this. Incredible book. One of the best books on the ACTUAL feelings of anyone who identifies with LGBT, and...

    I?ve read dozens of books in the same genre of Christian titles of which ?Gay Girl Good God? by Jackie Hill Perry is the latest entry. Perry?s first book is a memoir of her life thus far from ?gay girl once? to ?what God?s goodness will do to a soul once grace gets to i...

    The clearest, most gospel-forward look into how God transforms the lives of his broken children. Full of grace and truth, Perry gently cuts away church stereotypes and cultural misnomers. I would recommend this to anyone?because it speaks to all. Churchgoers, atheists, same-sex attra...

    Try as I might, I earnestly cannot recall the last time that I read an entire book in one sitting. (Nowadays, it's rare enough that I finish a booklet or lengthy blog in a single go!) Yet that's exactly what happened a few hours ago, as I picked this book up and couldn't put it down. J...

    This book does exactly what she says she wanted to do. It shows you a little about her and a lot about God and His goodness. Beautifully written ...

    "God is not calling gay people to be straight, He is calling them to Him" This book was a amazing. I truly felt the love in each page. It is primarily based on struggles in sexuality but every person weather you are gay or not can take something from this book. Jackie touches on man...

    For those fellow LGBT Christians: this book is nothing new. It is the same old ?love the sinner, hate the sin? rhetoric we have heard for many years. The author doesn?t believe herself being gay is a sin, but that engaging in lesbian relationships is. As a bisexual and trans Chri...

    I don't know how I ran across Jackie Hill Perry, but after hearing her story...and how she talked about her story, I wanted to know more. I've listened to numerous interviews with her and always walk away not as interested in her ex-gay conversation but instead her talk about God. T...

    I hope anyone who is looking at these reviews wondering if this book could help them ?pray away the gay? or anything along the lines of that sees this comment. Your sexuality, no matter gay, straight or something in between isn?t something to be ashamed of. Love is love, and I?...

    I like Jackie and appreciate her music but this book was only Okay. I found the chapter on the so called "heterosexual gospel" to be rather misguided and unhelpful. She wants to guard against the idea that gays must become straight in order to become Christians (the Galatian heresy of ...

    God is good. No matter what we do, or who we think we are, God will never change. This is a beautiful testimony of a woman who found that God was more important than anything we hold dear. She wants us to see, as she did, that God wants us, all of us, all our actions, thoughts, and...

    It's difficult to rate a person's memoir and how they view their own life. However, reading this critically as both a Christian and a member of the LGBTQ community, I found some aspects hard to swallow. First, Jackie seems to avoid the use of the term "sexual orientation" and uses the ...

    This book is amazing and humbling. I?m going to be reading it again this week. I read another review on here that if you replace the word ?gay? with any other idols of your heart, this book can reorient your heart to worshipping God. It?s completely true! I fell more in...

    Jackie?s testimony is powerful. Also, if you replace ?gay? with whatever your personal idol is, really good book about worshipping God instead of gods. Convicting book, whether you are gay or not. ...

    Basically: This story touches on so many important, and misunderstood, issues?same-sex attraction, biblical femininity, repentance, sanctification, evangelism?and Jackie is an honest, winsome, and humble storyteller. Something I've been wrestling with a lot recently is what it m...

    JHP is an unashamed poet. She encouraged me spiritually and relationally through the power of words... I?m not often moved by someone?s interpretation of Jesus, but she writes as if I?m her confidante and it prostrated me before Him. For instance, I told a friend I was weary o...

    ?Oh no? I thought[? here we go again?. Yet another memoir on being a gay Christian. But I had heard this girl was good?..so I ordered Gay Girl, Good God in the hope that it might not be bad. I was wrong?.it is superb! This is the book that Vicky Beeching should have written...

    This book was by far the best book I've read this year. Jackie's writing is exquisite, but more than that her portrayal of our good God and His sustaining grace allowing us to overcome sin, was life changing. This is about SO much more than gayness, although it was fascinating to under...

    I had never heard of this author until this book. I was intrigued by the title and its being promoted by a few blogs I follow. Before I give my review, I must say that my liking the book does not make me a fan of the author?s rap music, nor do I completely agree with her view on soci...

    It is hard to write a review for a book you love so much, that is full of truth and eloquently, poetically written. Never could I do it justice with my feeble words. But let me say this: this is a book for everyone. It is not primarily about sexuality, but about sin and truth, redempti...

    I loved this book. The context is same sex attractedness, but it is about so much more than that. The author does a fantastic job of making all sin and all joy about the gospel. For those who struggle with homosexuality, the goal is not to suddenly be made straight or to end up getting...

    Every Christian should read this book. Not only is the content beautiful and glorifying to God, but it is also a non-fiction book that reads like fiction. Jackie's writing style is poetic, she helps you see what she says. I found myself praising God throughout the pages. I hope many mo...

    Jackie Hill Perry has a gift: the ability to speak the simple, profound truth of the gospel. Though we also need the deep biblical scholars who mine the nuances of Scripture, we also need the voices of people like Jackie who can speak the truth simply and with power. Gay Girl, Good ...

    Knowing Jackie Hill Perry mostly for her spoken word work, I don't know why I was surprised to see that "Gay Girl, Good God" was so poetic. Jackie tells her life story in an incredibly compelling way that will keep you hooked. And when she's done, she keeps the amazing work at the part...

    This book is one of the most beautifully written books I have ever read. Its prose and poetry, and lyricism spoke to parts of my mind, heart, and soul that often go untouched in memoirs like these. So snaps for that. But to be honest going deeper than that is easy- Jackie's story reso...

    Listened to this on audio (Jackie reads it herself and she is a compelling reader/speaker.) This is worth the listen/read - a story of God?s goodness that we can all relate to with practical encouragements for the church. ...

    An artist with words Jackie Hill Perry beautifully tells her story and even more beautifully tells the story of God's grace and relentless pursuit of her in this book ...

    I read Jackie Hill Perry?s #GayGirlGoodGod book for my own personal reasons, and really enjoyed her heart for God, her husband, and other people who are having a hard time with this. Incredible book. One of the best books on the ACTUAL feelings of anyone who identifies with LGBT, and...

    I?ve read dozens of books in the same genre of Christian titles of which ?Gay Girl Good God? by Jackie Hill Perry is the latest entry. Perry?s first book is a memoir of her life thus far from ?gay girl once? to ?what God?s goodness will do to a soul once grace gets to i...

    The clearest, most gospel-forward look into how God transforms the lives of his broken children. Full of grace and truth, Perry gently cuts away church stereotypes and cultural misnomers. I would recommend this to anyone?because it speaks to all. Churchgoers, atheists, same-sex attra...

    God is good. No matter what we do, or who we think we are, God will never change. This is a beautiful testimony of a woman who found that God was more important than anything we hold dear. She wants us to see, as she did, that God wants us, all of us, all our actions, thoughts, and...

    It's difficult to rate a person's memoir and how they view their own life. However, reading this critically as both a Christian and a member of the LGBTQ community, I found some aspects hard to swallow. First, Jackie seems to avoid the use of the term "sexual orientation" and uses the ...

    JHP is an unashamed poet. She encouraged me spiritually and relationally through the power of words... I?m not often moved by someone?s interpretation of Jesus, but she writes as if I?m her confidante and it prostrated me before Him. For instance, I told a friend I was weary o...

    ?Oh no? I thought[? here we go again?. Yet another memoir on being a gay Christian. But I had heard this girl was good?..so I ordered Gay Girl, Good God in the hope that it might not be bad. I was wrong?.it is superb! This is the book that Vicky Beeching should have written...

    This book was by far the best book I've read this year. Jackie's writing is exquisite, but more than that her portrayal of our good God and His sustaining grace allowing us to overcome sin, was life changing. This is about SO much more than gayness, although it was fascinating to under...

    I had never heard of this author until this book. I was intrigued by the title and its being promoted by a few blogs I follow. Before I give my review, I must say that my liking the book does not make me a fan of the author?s rap music, nor do I completely agree with her view on soci...

    It is hard to write a review for a book you love so much, that is full of truth and eloquently, poetically written. Never could I do it justice with my feeble words. But let me say this: this is a book for everyone. It is not primarily about sexuality, but about sin and truth, redempti...

    I loved this book. The context is same sex attractedness, but it is about so much more than that. The author does a fantastic job of making all sin and all joy about the gospel. For those who struggle with homosexuality, the goal is not to suddenly be made straight or to end up getting...

    Every Christian should read this book. Not only is the content beautiful and glorifying to God, but it is also a non-fiction book that reads like fiction. Jackie's writing style is poetic, she helps you see what she says. I found myself praising God throughout the pages. I hope many mo...

    I have been following Jackie Hill Perry a while now after running into an excerpt of her writing. I have been concerned about the attitudes of the Christian church towards the LBGT community and her insight was new and refreshing. I really appreciated hearing Jackie's testimony of how ...

    Jackie Hill Perry has a gift: the ability to speak the simple, profound truth of the gospel. Though we also need the deep biblical scholars who mine the nuances of Scripture, we also need the voices of people like Jackie who can speak the truth simply and with power. Gay Girl, Good ...

    Knowing Jackie Hill Perry mostly for her spoken word work, I don't know why I was surprised to see that "Gay Girl, Good God" was so poetic. Jackie tells her life story in an incredibly compelling way that will keep you hooked. And when she's done, she keeps the amazing work at the part...

    This book is one of the most beautifully written books I have ever read. Its prose and poetry, and lyricism spoke to parts of my mind, heart, and soul that often go untouched in memoirs like these. So snaps for that. But to be honest going deeper than that is easy- Jackie's story reso...

    Listened to this on audio (Jackie reads it herself and she is a compelling reader/speaker.) This is worth the listen/read - a story of God?s goodness that we can all relate to with practical encouragements for the church. ...

    An artist with words Jackie Hill Perry beautifully tells her story and even more beautifully tells the story of God's grace and relentless pursuit of her in this book ...

    I read Jackie Hill Perry?s #GayGirlGoodGod book for my own personal reasons, and really enjoyed her heart for God, her husband, and other people who are having a hard time with this. Incredible book. One of the best books on the ACTUAL feelings of anyone who identifies with LGBT, and...

    I?ve read dozens of books in the same genre of Christian titles of which ?Gay Girl Good God? by Jackie Hill Perry is the latest entry. Perry?s first book is a memoir of her life thus far from ?gay girl once? to ?what God?s goodness will do to a soul once grace gets to i...

    The clearest, most gospel-forward look into how God transforms the lives of his broken children. Full of grace and truth, Perry gently cuts away church stereotypes and cultural misnomers. I would recommend this to anyone?because it speaks to all. Churchgoers, atheists, same-sex attra...

    Try as I might, I earnestly cannot recall the last time that I read an entire book in one sitting. (Nowadays, it's rare enough that I finish a booklet or lengthy blog in a single go!) Yet that's exactly what happened a few hours ago, as I picked this book up and couldn't put it down. J...

    This book does exactly what she says she wanted to do. It shows you a little about her and a lot about God and His goodness. Beautifully written ...
