Publisher's Summary

The oldest translation of a gospel is returned to the world by a secret society long dedicated to its preservation. In it, Jesus explicitly condemns bigotry and homophobia. In a new world in which LGBTQ passengers receive preferential boarding for flights and the United States has elected its first lesbian president, Pastor Rick Harris is stalwart, closeted preacher who doggedly holds on to his increasingly unpopular convictions.

When an incendiary sermon goes too far and offends an influential family, Rick makes a painful choice to keep his job: He attends an atonement camp run by drag queens for society’s most unrepentant and terminally incurable homophobes.

Atonement Camp is immersion therapy for Pastor Harris, and it might be working. An open bar with pedicures, a devastatingly attractive roommate, and an endless supply of glitter help him manage to make new friends. Soon, Rick and his cohorts learn the camp may hold its own secrets. Amid the smiling faces and scantily clad pool boys who staff the camp, a clandestine group plots to discredit the New Revelation and everything it stands for. 

If Rick has the conviction to confront his own hypocrisy, he might be able to uncover the conspirators with help from his adopted flock - and find new truths within himself.

OMG, OMG… I freaking love this book!

I love this book, I love when they go to the camp and I absolutely love the ending. This whole book was awesome. It was funny it flowed well and I can’t recommend it enough. That is unless you are a homophobe LOL! This book is so good I know I said that and so I will end this review, because that is all that keeps popping in my mind is how much I love this book. I wish I could read it again, but since I know how it ends it wouldn’t be the same. I will probably read it again but not anytime soon. If you love laughs and love good stories with the original plot read this book it is so so good! Oh before I end this review I just want to say the narrator was so good which made the book even better if that’s possible he did the voice is so well and so distinctly you knew who was talking before he said the name. He is really good.

The priest, the drag queen and the conspiracy

In his first novel, young author Evan J. Corbin introduces the reader to a world that has been changed. A momentous archaeological discovery, an ancient manuscript, a religious revelation, equality for everyone, no matter their sexual orientation and a priest that cannot accept the new dogma. This is what happens when the unwilling priest is forced to go to the atonement camp for unrepentant homophobes, in order to keep his job. But, once he arrives, he realizes that maybe things are not as bad as he thinks. A secluded location, drag queens, attractive pool boys, and a mysterious conspiracy will compel him to embark on a journey of self-discovery. Experienced actor and voiceover artist Christopher Solon brings all these colorful and fascinating characters to life with a balanced performance. He reads at a steady pace, switching with ease between voices and accents, infusing this already intense story with even more urgency. Fast paced, well written, easy to follow, interesting, funny and entertaining, this debut novel will keep the listener glued to his earbuds until the end. With an original plot and a diverse and inclusive cast of characters, Atonement Camp for Unrepentant Homophobes is a novel that should be experienced by everyone who is interested in the LGBTQ way of life.

Five Stars!

An irreverent reimagining of religious dogma, and a thoughtful exploration of the familial ties that bind. I thoroughly enjoyed this remarkable new novel.

A Story About Loving Yourself

4.5 out of 5 stars The title of this book doesn’t not give a lot away, and I was honestly hesitant at first because I couldn’t tell which side of the debate it was going to be on. Thankfully I read the synopsis and had a slightly better feeling, but once I dug into other reviews for it, I quickly realized that this book was going to be up my alley. Atonement Camp is one of those books that when you start it, even what I said above feels like it goes out the windows. The first almost quarter of the book shows exactly who Rick is or at least who Rick is trying to convince himself that he is. Then we’re treated to some flashback scenes that flip everything on its head. Once we get into more of Rick’s backstory, it’s not that you start to like him, but I started to stop disliking him some. It wasn’t until almost the end of the book, once (trying not to spoil) things actually change in his life, that he’s a likeable character that you realize was living a life that wasn’t really his choosing (maybe a slight spoiler, sorry!). I will say that this book was great. It was funny, interesting, and most of all tells a story about loving who you truly are. No matter what that costs. But more than that it was also a little bit of a thriller book as well, with scenes that had me guessing who was infiltrating the Atonement Camp and who certain people worked for and why. It was a really interesting mix of a story and one that I won’t forget for some time. Overall, an enjoyable story that I flew though in about two days. A story of love, specifically about learning to love yourself. Something that we all need to be reminded of from time to time.

standing ovation!

I applaud the author for his writing of this wonderful story. It's written with compassion. The story touches on how gay and lesbian have been treated, to the point of hiding who they are, in order to make everyone happy. I was thrilled the main character admitted to himself who he is and keeps his job. The narration was spot on. The character voices were excellent. The narration was smooth and easy to follow. I received a free copy of this audible. This is my honest review posted freely
