Summary

A rich portrayal of living faithfully and happily as a Christian with same-sex attraction that paints a compelling picture of discipleship for every believer.

In this powerful and personal book, author Rachel Gilson describes her own unexpected journey of coming out and coming to faith...and what came next. As she does so, she addresses many of the questions that Christians living with same-sex attraction are wrestling with: Am I consigned to a life of loneliness? How do I navigate my friendships? Will my desires ever change? Is there some greater purpose to all this?

Drawing on insights from the Bible and the experiences of others, Born Again This Way provides assurance and encouragement for Christians with same-sex attraction, and paints a compelling picture of discipleship for every believer.

Whatever your sexuality, this book is an inspiring testimony of how a life submitted to Jesus will be fulfilling and fruitful, but not always in the ways we might expect.

BEST of the MANY I’ve read about SSA

I am a parent of a 20 something year old adult child who is SSA and dabbles in the lifestyle. I’ve read, listened to, watched an uncountable number of pieces, so much though I probably know more about the subject than some who experience it. Although I don’t known about it in the way people who experience it do, I’ve gained a lot of knowledge over the years. This was by far the most well thought out, articulate, interesting, and honest book I’ve read on the topic (actually I listened to it. I whole heartily encourage everyone who experiences, or loves someone who experiences SSA to read it!

Thoughtfully written and wonderfully narrated.

Very helpful and insightful. Helped me understand those who have same sex attraction and come alongside them in a more meaningful and loving way.

So insightful

It was very easy to listen to and brought to light different layers of living out a God centred life in a sexually broken world. I am not same sex attracted but many of her insights were still helpful for me as a single Christian woman navigating the possibility of a life of singleness in submission to God

Wonderful enlightening book on same sex attraction

I loved this book. What a great gracious story of God's redemption in the midst of a life of same sex attraction. So encouraging to hear it from the mouth of the person that experienced it.

Eye opening and thoughtful

I can't personally relate but was interested in order to learn more and love more. This was so insightful and will impact me and cause me to speak differently. The observations regarding how marriage is often presented as a finish line were particularly insightful.

Encouraging and helpful!

This book was a tremendous blessing to me. As a person who is seeking to navigate these difficult issues of sexual identity from a biblical perspective it helped a lot for me to hear about them from someone who has lived through challenges, rather than just learning about what the Bible says. Very helpful, thank you Rachel for such an honest and forthright discussion.

Fresh Look at the Christian Gay Struggle

I thought this was a very thoughtful and Bible based book. I was disappointed near the end, but I’ll let you read to discover for yourself. It’s just a personal preference and a hope I had, no reflection on the author. I would recommend to anyone with this struggle to help not feel alone and I would recommend to heterosexual Christians to help understand what their same sex attracted brothers and sisters go through.
