Publisher's Summary

As a teenager and young man, Justin Lee felt deeply torn. Nicknamed "God Boy" by his peers, he knew that he was called to a life in the evangelical Christian ministry. But Lee harbored a secret: He also knew that he was gay. In this groundbreaking book, Lee recalls the events - his coming out to his parents, his experiences with the "ex-gay" movement, and his in-depth study of the Bible - that led him, eventually, to self-acceptance.
But more than just a memoir, Torn provides insightful, practical guidance for all committed Christians who wonder how to relate to gay friends or family members - or who struggle with their own sexuality. Convinced that "in a culture that sees gays and Christians as enemies, gay Christians are in a unique position to bring peace," Lee demonstrates that people of faith on both sides of the debate can respect, learn from, and love one another.

i loved this book.

i loved it.. this book really helps not only straight but gays that are struggling with their attractions and as the author it can go both ways but i choose to be as christ like and loving as possible and not blame either party.

Open, honest and gracious

I love how the author is so gracious with his treatment of both gay and non-affirming Christians. This is a topic I’ve struggled with for sometime and being a straight Christian I have never really known where to tire with my honest questions. Every time I broached the subject with my Christian friends, I’ve been treated like I’m on the verge of devil worship for not openly opposing gays and admitting I had doubts about popular theologies.
To the author: thank you for your openness, honesty, and graciousness.

Excellent investigation into the subject

Justin Lee has written an excellent narrative of his life, the struggles, the searching and many insights from side A & side B. A must read for all who have interest in the topic, one side or the other.
