Great book--very revealing

This book was great because they are very open about just about everything--before their breaks from homosexuality and after. Paula is very endearing and honest and John, a different personality, more outgoing, is very honest and articulate. This book gives a lot of hope to those with any sort of same-sex issues.


I wanted to order a second copy for a friend of mine and it was then that i decided to read some of the reviews. One of which sparked my interest involving john paulk's gay bar scandle. Perhaps if John lived right up the road from me, just an average gay man who decided to turn his life around and wanted to be healed of his sexual desires. Would there have been the same pressure from the world , from satan and the hold that he has on the weak. If it had not been for this book i would not have known how to deal with my sister coming out. This book taught me compassion, understanding, and most importly- WHY! In no way should this book be critiqued based on Ann and John's story, because it is just that- their story, and what a wonderful story it is. For thoses who are gay and are picking up this book with the intention to slam it or judge, i urge you to consider one thought. There are those who are living unhappy and most of all unhealthy lifestyles and tribute that to their sexuality. If you do not identify with that statement - This book is not for you. This book gives you hope.

God's Overwhelming Love

John & Anne Paulk performed an excellent public service by giving others their personal testimony of how the love of God freed them from homosexuality. This book gave me hope and opened my eyes to a world that's bigger than me. I read their book in one day because I could not put it down. They detailed their childhood from feeling alone & isolated after a family divorce to feeling defiled after being violated by a youth's ignorance & curiosity of human sexuality. On a scale of one to ten this book is an eleven.No one tells the youth of this world that you do not have to live this way. The world tells them that as soon as you have these unusual sexual feelings that you have to act upon them and you have to live this way. The media can not bash this book because this is one man's & one woman's personal testimony and no one can tell you that you have not changed but you. Love Won Out is a book that will open the eyes the seeker, searcher, adament, & the obstinent. I loved it. God's love extends to every area of our lives & who would've known that he could love you out of such a wretched lifestyle?! Thank you John & Anne Paulk!

THIS WAS Great :-)

I loved this book to pieces.. I couldnt put it down. Replying to the other review stating that it was biased. It certainly was not! It just shared the couples struggles and how they overcame it.. This book doesnt show Bias.. It shows me that there is hope- You are not just "born gay" or there is no way out.. According to this book, I found out that there must be.. If they can do it.. There is a way out.When reading the book, I felt like I was sitting on the couch listening to their story. It was very well written and kept me interested. I actually talked to John Paulk on the phone. (When you read the book, you find out he has a ministry) It was such an honor to talk to him and get some questions answered. I know that there is hope for people who want to get out of homosexuality.

In truth, "Love is power" not "knowledge is power"

I could not put this book down when I started reading it. I have friends who are struggling with their sexuality, and this book let me realize how real this struggle is. It is so amazing to hear about the power of the Holy Spirit at work in the lives of individuals who may seem so far away from living the fulfilling life God has to offer us in His Son. Even though the book follows along John and Anne's story, there is someone else very present and active -the Holy Spirit. It is the Holy Spirit working "behind the scenes" to bring about the healing, which is love and acceptance, that brings true freedom. I loved the honestly of both John and Anne in sharing their lives. I can relate to so many feelings they openly shared, even though I do not struggle with my sexuality, it's the brokeness in humanity I can identify with. This was an incredible true love story. Not only between John and Anne, but the love affair they both have with Jesus Christ that brought them to healing and true joy. These are plainly real people sharing real testimony. They aren't trying to present their opinion, only their true story. So no need to "read with caution", but and enjoy!
