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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Thank God for people who actually address real issues!

I was curious to see Jackie's perspective, two major sections in this book blessed me in particular (the rest did as well, just these stood out for me most); she addresses marriage as an idol in the church, and she talks about having trouble with men. I've had the same feelings myself with men (feeling angry and put off by even a good guy,) maybe because we both experienced abuse. It gave me hope plus I love being single, too, which the church cant seem to grasp that for some bizarre reason.

Smooth read, solid narration, highly recommend.

It wasn’t what I expected!

This is more than a testimony of freedom. It’s more than a personal story being shared.
This if you let it is a book that will open up your very soul to meet LOVE himself!
This is more than a focus on how do I or how dare she!
This book has unexpectedly changed my life, the life I felt was open and free. As I listened to it intently from the beginning to the end, it opened me up and poured love into me giving me a freedom I didn’t know I needed.
I am glad, so very glad that I have experienced this journey towards the Good God, Jackie Perry-Hill speaks of!

Intense, poetic, deep and Biblical.

You can tell Jackie Hill Perry is a spoken word artist who has experienced the richness and the darkness of life almost immediately. Even if you don't agree with her, you cannot deny her courage, faith, and love of God. I found this book to be hard hitting and helpful. Thank you good God and thank you Jackie.

A must for those seeking to make real their faith!

This is not a book about homosexuality, a gay girl or becoming hetrosexual. This is a book about who we ALL are and who God IS, his great love and what he wants for us. To seek him, to know him, to experience his goodness, drawing close to him, living in him and through all of that allowing him to work in us.
A must read/listen to anyone who is seeking to make real their faith!
Pretty incredible performance as well. I really enjoyed listening. I typically listen at 1.5x, but I slowed down, not because Jackie speaks fast but to allow it to really sink deep. Highly recommended.

if you do

Very religious and bible orientated. Too full on for general audience. should be in religious category. Narration is also a little amateur.
