"I read Desires in Conflict for the first time when I was 19. I was fighting my own personal battle with homosexuality, sure that freedom wasn't possible and afraid that God and the Church hated me. More than a decade later, I am free of desires that once held me captive, strong in my faith, married to my amazing wife, Leslie, and currently the Executive Director of Exodus International, North America. The Lord used Desires in Conflict to shine a light into the darkness and to help guide me out of homosexuality. Joe Dallas has eternally impacted a generation of young people like me."

Top Customer Reviews
The question, "Why am I this way?" was answered from many avenues as the author shared the growing pains experienced by people whom he has counselled over the years. I found that there are many others out there just like me.
There is a reason we struggle with these desires, and it is not because we were born this way. This book delivers a foundation for solid hope of leaving these desires behind, through Christ, and through healthy relationships. That is what the reader can expect from this book, if he is willing to listen.
This book speaks mostly to men, although there is a section dedicated to women as well. And the author is not just a professional counsellor, he himself is a "struggler."
The Body of Christ would do well also, by reading this book. The Church will never effectively deal with homosexuality in our society, until it learns to deal with it effectively within its own self. Many in the family are wounded and confused, because it simply doesn't know how to help us.
Most Sincerely, Dean
