In sharing his own story of being a committed believer who struggled with same sex attraction early in his life, author, husband, and father Alan Chambers will help you understand the issues from the inside. And as the former president of the largest ex-gay ministry, Alan knows all the arguments, the concerns, the scriptures, and the heartaches.
My Exodus encourages us to look for and affirm the image of God in everyone. It’s a reminder that God is still at work and deeply loves his creation. And it’s a book for everyone who wants to be welcoming and loving to all people without compromising their faith or their biblical theology.
Through personal and powerful stories and opening the scriptures, you will come to understand how to love all people and positively engage our culture in the red hot conversations and topics surrounding LGBT and the Church
Ultimately, My Exodus equips us all to be better and do better in God-honoring ways. By embracing the idea of loving well because we want to and not because we have to, we will find hope for ourselves, for the Church, and for our world.

- Review by Meg
In the aftermath of Exodus International, Alan has not scorned his high level of influence; he recognizes he still plays a role in shaping the Christian posture toward the LGBTQ and same-sex attracted community. From his interviews and writings, it seems he not only takes ownership for the collateral damage of his ministry, but mourns deeply over it.
It is with this brevity and humility that Alan writes this book. Resolved to champion the image of God in every person, he dares the Church to be a society that invites every person, no matter their story, to take the next step of faith closer to the God who formed them intentionally, knows them completely, and pursues them relentlessly.
I am excited not only to read Alan's book, but to actively watch the next decade of history unfold. God is calling His people to quiet their hearts to hear the voice of the Shepherd, to beat with the heart of the Savior who came to restore and reconcile and bring us back to God. And having been quieted by His love, may we amplify His song. (Posted on 8/24/2015)
