"Simply fabulous. Wonderfully honest. Superbly written. Deeply inspiring in its powerful portrayal of one person's struggle to choose Jesus above all. I learned so much from this fantastic story of Greg's both agonizing and exhilarating journey in faith. This is a book every Christian--especially heterosexual evangelicals--must read if we are to learn to love our LGBTQ neighbors, friends, and Christian brothers and sisters the way Jesus does."--Ronald J. Sider, Palmer Seminary at Eastern University "To say this book is important is a painful understatement. It is the candid, moving, intensely personal story of a gay young man who wants to live his life under the authority of King Jesus and who refuses to accept the comforting answers proffered by different parts of the culture. Superbly written, this book stands athwart the shibboleths of our day and reminds us what submission to King Jesus looks like, what it feels like. This book needs to be thoughtfully read by straight people and by gay people, by unbelievers and by Christians. It is not to be read with a condescending smirk, but with humility."--D. A. Carson, president, The Gospel Coalition, research professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School "Today's followers of Jesus will not be able to depend on a cultural Christianity to anchor their faith. Christian ideas are no longer the majority opinion or law in America. That trend will continue. Christians will begin to experience what so many of our brothers and sisters around the world already know: it is costly to follow Jesus. The Christian of today will need to be able to engage in uncomfortable and nuanced conversations with thoughtfulness, patience, humility, and Scripture--to sit in the tension of gray and complex issues and admit their need for God's wisdom. If not, our world and churches will continue to grow more deeply divided as we retreat further into our tribes out of fear and lack of trust in God's ability to guide us. Before we can speak, we must listen. Especially to those who have been marginalized, pushed aside, and undervalued. This book serves as an opportunity to do just that. To hear from a man who knows and loves Jesus and wrestles honestly with himself and God. Listen to him. Hear his story. Enter into another perspective, a narrative that is often untold."--Andy Mineo, Hip Hop Artist "Greg has written a book that is a delight to read both because of the beauty of his writing and his main message: that our good God made no mistakes in either making him the way that he is or asking him to live life the way that he is."--Ed Shaw, author of Same-Sex Attraction and the Church "Greg Coles has poured himself out beautifully in this transparent account of his life with Christ as a young gay man. He asks whether the Bible leaves room for monogamous same-sex relationships and agonizes over how the church will treat singleness and sexual minorities. His answers are not easy. Especially for him. If you want to be inspired by one man's deep and unfailing love of Jesus, read this book. If you or someone you love is a follower of Jesus who happens to be gay, this is a must-read."--Carolyn Carney, director of spiritual formation & prayer, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship
