    1. Co-written with his wife Leslie, Alan Chamber's "My Exodus: Leaving the Slavery of Religion, Loving the Image of God in Everyone" recalls his involvement in Christian ministries involving the LGBT community known to many as the "ex-gay" reparative spiritual counseling that was the basis for the Exodus International Organization where he served as president for over a decade. Deeply ashamed and closeted as a youth, spending tremendous amounts of energy attempting to hide and act as "straight" as [...]


    2. "Opinions are like assholes, everyone has one" so the saying goes. Never was a truer word spoken about what people think of Alan and Leslie Chambers. This memoir, mostly written by Alan but with helpful and relevant inserts by Leslie, will either reinforce or shift that opinion. Vilified and praised in different circles now it's time to tell their side of the story.Alan Chambers was the president of Exodus International for nearly twenty years. He was THE spokesman for the "freedom from homosexu [...]


    3. I'm a sucker for honest, heartfelt memoirs and this is clearly one of those. Chambers' story is both personal and public and his role leading Exodus International is surely divisive and hurtful to many. This book doesn't make theological arguments but does show Chambers' growth and evolution as a person and a Christian.I am grateful that he wrote it and grateful that I read it.


    4. A powerful memoir on a very sensitive topic. got the subtitle of this book completely wrong--it's actually titled My Exodus: From Fear to Grace. I'm very curious how they can list such an inflammatory subtitle without pushback.


    5. It's strange that you'd be so interested/rooting for something's demise, but this honest account makes you feel better about it. Also, there's a candid and honest explanation of a relationship that would seem fake and dishonest.


    6. This book opens with a compelling story from the 2006 Exodus conference, which my husband and I attended with our then 17 year old son. It closes with the 2013 Exodus conference, which my husband and I also attended, though without our son. He died in 2009 after turning to drugs in his desperation to escape the pain that came from doing everything he was told to do in order to become straight only to find that neither God, nor his mind or body, seemed to cooperate. Exodus' story, obviously, is q [...]


    7. I seldom give a book less than 3 stars and do so only with great thought. This book is one that had some serious flaws on delivering it's tag line. It did not at all describe the "slavery of religion." Nor did it even try to describe what "grace" is. As the central theme, more energy should have expended in describing what "grace" means rather than assuming that the reader would understand the Christian ghetto vocabulary that has resulting in "grace" having little if any meaning.I wanted to empa [...]


    8. I appreciated getting a sense of Alan Chambers the man through this book, especially in relation to his childhood, his father, and his wife, Leslie. I feel pained that Alan and Leslie felt the need to spend as much time as they do discussing their sexual relationship, though it's understandable that it's included. There is a lot of truth-telling in the book, yet for all that, I wish Alan had been able to go further than he does. His influence as President of Exodus International seems glossed ov [...]



    9. I read this in one day - just couldn't put it down. Enjoyable book with not a ton of takeaways, but it was very relatable for anyone who has had a faithshift.
