Product Description


"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."

Format: Paperback
This book was like looking in a mirror for me. In a tough-love sort of personal way, the author speaks to the reader in the first person, and takes away much, if not all, of the confusion experienced by the Christian who is struggling with the spiritually conflicting desire to love people of the same gender in a way which, according to the Bible, God forbids.
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

Format: Paperback
Joe Dallas has been through it all and is able to speak not only from a strong Biblical and psychological knowledge base, but also from personal experience. Conversationally written directly to the Christian struggling with homosexuality, this book gives powerful encouragement and practical advice. Especially exceptional is his coverage of all aspects of the religious and psychological processes of growth and change. It's easy to read, but may be emotionally and spiritually challenging. This book is also an excellent resource for parents, family members, and church members who seek to understand how they can help the struggler.

This book is great because it's honest. It's not presumptuous. It addresses real issues, I was EXTREMELY skeptical. But I'm glad I read it. If you want to change and don't know where to start, start here. But be ready for some home truths and be willing to tell yourself the truth.
