    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...

    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...

    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. ...

    ?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...

    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...

    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 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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Jackie Hill Perry is a 29-year-old writer, speaker and artist, who was born in St. Louis. She writes that she has written this book out of love for what a good God what done for her ? loving her and giving her new life and a new heart. She tells us that what God has done to her soul ...

    I've known about Jackie Hill Perry for a while. However, I would say that since last year, her voice has been one of my favorite voices to listen to. She is well-spoken, full of imagination, creativity and, above all weighty in content. She is, after all, a poet, writer and a hip hop a...

    What can I say? Jackie Hill Perry has done it again. Over and over as I've listened to and read her thoughts over the years, I've never failed to be impressed with her skill in expressing God's truth. I had high hopes for this book and it satisfied every one. Her love for God inspires ...

    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...

    I had pre-ordered this book a few months ago and was so happy to find out that the pre-order came with a free audio-book download - I love listening to autobiographies read by the author. I've been a fan of JHP for a couple of years now and I met her at TGCW conference this summer; tha...

    Most spiritual type books have mediocre writing with great content, mediocre content with good writing or none of the above. Jackie Hill Perry is a gifted artist and her words are absolutely beautiful. Even more, the content is deep, profound and meaningful. There are few books tha...

    Jackie Hill Perry has written the most honest, straightforward, clear description of sanctification I have read. As Perry shares her story, she paints vivid pictures for us of the beauty of the gospel, how the Holy Spirit convicts & changes hearts, and that the center of the Christ...

    This book was extremely honest and biblical. Jackie Hill Perry speaks with honestly as she talks about her former lesbian lifestyle. She also does a good job explaining that when she came to Christ it was not just her sexual orientation that God was changing. She walks through Scriptur...

    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 ...

    A remarkable and beautiful book; especially the audio version. The author candidly shares her profound and honest journey of identity through masterful prose. She tells us why ? and how ? did she left the love of her life for the lover of her soul and the reader is provoked to ...

    This book is awesome to listen to on audible because Jackie Hill reads it herself. I loved her poetic words and her biblical knowledge. I also appreciate reading books that I don?t agree with to get a different perspective. All in all great book, but I can?t get over the ?God can...

    "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...

    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...

    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...

    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. ...

    ?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...

    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...

    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 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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Jackie Hill Perry is a 29-year-old writer, speaker and artist, who was born in St. Louis. She writes that she has written this book out of love for what a good God what done for her ? loving her and giving her new life and a new heart. She tells us that what God has done to her soul ...

    I've known about Jackie Hill Perry for a while. However, I would say that since last year, her voice has been one of my favorite voices to listen to. She is well-spoken, full of imagination, creativity and, above all weighty in content. She is, after all, a poet, writer and a hip hop a...

    What can I say? Jackie Hill Perry has done it again. Over and over as I've listened to and read her thoughts over the years, I've never failed to be impressed with her skill in expressing God's truth. I had high hopes for this book and it satisfied every one. Her love for God inspires ...

    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...

    I had pre-ordered this book a few months ago and was so happy to find out that the pre-order came with a free audio-book download - I love listening to autobiographies read by the author. I've been a fan of JHP for a couple of years now and I met her at TGCW conference this summer; tha...

    Most spiritual type books have mediocre writing with great content, mediocre content with good writing or none of the above. Jackie Hill Perry is a gifted artist and her words are absolutely beautiful. Even more, the content is deep, profound and meaningful. There are few books tha...

    Jackie Hill Perry has written the most honest, straightforward, clear description of sanctification I have read. As Perry shares her story, she paints vivid pictures for us of the beauty of the gospel, how the Holy Spirit convicts & changes hearts, and that the center of the Christ...

    This book was extremely honest and biblical. Jackie Hill Perry speaks with honestly as she talks about her former lesbian lifestyle. She also does a good job explaining that when she came to Christ it was not just her sexual orientation that God was changing. She walks through Scriptur...

    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 ...

    A remarkable and beautiful book; especially the audio version. The author candidly shares her profound and honest journey of identity through masterful prose. She tells us why ? and how ? did she left the love of her life for the lover of her soul and the reader is provoked to ...

    This book is awesome to listen to on audible because Jackie Hill reads it herself. I loved her poetic words and her biblical knowledge. I also appreciate reading books that I don?t agree with to get a different perspective. All in all great book, but I can?t get over the ?God can...

    "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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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. ...

    ?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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Jackie Hill Perry is a 29-year-old writer, speaker and artist, who was born in St. Louis. She writes that she has written this book out of love for what a good God what done for her ? loving her and giving her new life and a new heart. She tells us that what God has done to her soul ...

    I've known about Jackie Hill Perry for a while. However, I would say that since last year, her voice has been one of my favorite voices to listen to. She is well-spoken, full of imagination, creativity and, above all weighty in content. She is, after all, a poet, writer and a hip hop a...

    What can I say? Jackie Hill Perry has done it again. Over and over as I've listened to and read her thoughts over the years, I've never failed to be impressed with her skill in expressing God's truth. I had high hopes for this book and it satisfied every one. Her love for God inspires ...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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. ...

    ?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...

    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...

    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 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...

    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...

    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...

    I had pre-ordered this book a few months ago and was so happy to find out that the pre-order came with a free audio-book download - I love listening to autobiographies read by the author. I've been a fan of JHP for a couple of years now and I met her at TGCW conference this summer; tha...

    Most spiritual type books have mediocre writing with great content, mediocre content with good writing or none of the above. Jackie Hill Perry is a gifted artist and her words are absolutely beautiful. Even more, the content is deep, profound and meaningful. There are few books tha...

    Jackie Hill Perry has written the most honest, straightforward, clear description of sanctification I have read. As Perry shares her story, she paints vivid pictures for us of the beauty of the gospel, how the Holy Spirit convicts & changes hearts, and that the center of the Christ...

    This book was extremely honest and biblical. Jackie Hill Perry speaks with honestly as she talks about her former lesbian lifestyle. She also does a good job explaining that when she came to Christ it was not just her sexual orientation that God was changing. She walks through Scriptur...

    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 ...

    A remarkable and beautiful book; especially the audio version. The author candidly shares her profound and honest journey of identity through masterful prose. She tells us why ? and how ? did she left the love of her life for the lover of her soul and the reader is provoked to ...

    This book is awesome to listen to on audible because Jackie Hill reads it herself. I loved her poetic words and her biblical knowledge. I also appreciate reading books that I don?t agree with to get a different perspective. All in all great book, but I can?t get over the ?God can...
