A Life of Unlearning : A preacher's struggle with his homosexuality, church and faith
There comes a time when we have to face realities in life. For some, reality slaps them in the face, refusing to be ignored.
On the surface, everything looked perfect. Anthony Venn-Brown was a popular, high-profile, Pentecostal preacher in Australia's growing mega-churches, such as Hillsong, and happily married father-of-two. Behind the scenes was a different story. Believing homosexuality made him unacceptable to God and others, a secret battle was being fought. After twenty-two years of prayer, struggle, torment, gay conversion therapy and marriage, a chance meeting forced Anthony to make the toughest decision of his life. Tired of feeling torn and fragmented, he confessed and came out. Abandoned by his church and Christian friends Anthony began his life of unlearning; a lonely journey that made him who he is today.
This honest account highlights not only the costs of being true to yourself but that the rewards of authenticity and integrity are worth it.
As Anthony's story is ultimately about being true to one's self: whether you're gay or straight, religious or non-believer, you'll find relevance in this triumphant autobiography.
