• This is an amazing book for the simple reason that it is gut wrenchingly honest. Nothing is "prettied up" or made more presentable; a very real and very human struggle is described and the book is life changing and powerful as a result. Brian
  • Anthony’s story reads like a novel to me. I kept thinking this is fiction, it couldn’t have happened to one man. His style is engaging, honest and raw even Peter J Johnston
  • I have read many books and heard many speaker discussing coming out and as they address the conflict with one's sexuality and faith. Venn-Brown presents a work that rings an authentic tone as he unearths the pain of living a closeted life. He does so without self-indulgence or bitterness. His words brim with hope, humor and integrity. Peterson Tuscano
  • Thank you so much for writing about your really quite extraordinary life with such vividness and emotional candour, and for the message of hope that underpins it. Steve from Paddington, Sydney
  • The story is told with brutal honesty and reads with a “can’t put it down” quality. Peter Matthewson
  • 'There is scarcely a page that does not engage you personally.………nothing is held back. Some will find Anthony’s story disturbing and confrontational and others will find it liberating and an example of the triumph of the individual human spirit. For those who want to understand human frailty, courage and personal redemption it is an invaluable resource. I highly recommend it. Roger Fedyk, Sydney Morning Herald Margo Kingston’s Webdairy
  • 'Anthony shares his life with us with all the colour that a story-telling evangelist can capture. The honesty of his story is compelling. His story faces the hard issues, HIV/AIDS, Suicide, Sexual Assault, Relationships, Marriage, Parenting, Domestic Violence, Loneliness, Guilt, Shame, Rejection, Love and Sex. He has nothing to hide and it is refreshing. I recommend this book as a non-threatening way to understand and process the issues of sexuality and spirituality; however, I can’t say you may not experience discomfort as the honesty in these pages invites you to be honest in your own life. Read it if you dare.' Dr Wendell Rosevear - O.A.M., M.B.,B.S., Dip. RACOG., FRACGP.,
  • I was impressed with the way this book was so well written and easy to read. It was riveting reading; a compelling story told bravely and honestly. Amazon.com
