Publisher's Summary

David Bennett came out to his parents as gay when he was 14 and entered Sydney's active gay community a few years later. In A War of Loves, he shares his growing desire as a gay rights activist to see justice for LGBTQI people, his journey through new age religions and French existentialism, and his university years as a postmodernist - before Jesus Christ showed up in his life in a highly unexpected way, leading him down a path he never would have imagined or predicted.

David had believed he was disqualified from God's love until he encountered that for himself in Jesus Christ. In A War of Loves, he recounts his dramatic story, investigates what the Bible teaches about sexuality, and above all demonstrates the profligate, unqualified grace of God.

Great faith-building testimony

Loved the personal nature of the story. Well written too.
Some truly miraculous aspects of David’s testimony show a Paul-like conversion to Christianity. Hand-picked by God. Amazing.

Sad but redemptive

A beautiful story of a life found in the midst of a cultural and spiritual war. I highly recommend for all who identify as LGBTIQ+ who have had a faith or are interested in faith.

encouraging testimony to our great God

thanks David for writing your testimony. insightful. As I listen to your story it was like having coffee with a friend. and this friends was sharing how they became a Christian in a real way. not cutting out the difficulties or struggles. nor neglecting to share the goodness of God and the joys.

Heart Warming

This book is beautifully written, close to poetic.
David's account is very open and honest.
I found myself tearing up when he describes he's relationship with Christ especially when he was at odds with him. As a Christian I feel less judgmental of the gay community because David explains their perspective and how they view the Christian community and Christianity.
He acknowledges the act of homosexuality is not what God intended for man and he bravely lives he's life as a celibate Christian.
This book has made me want to seek a deeper relationship with God, it would be beneficial for both Christian and non Christians alike.

Couldn’t stop listening…

I was expecting a well articulated argument, what I got was an incredibly honest and vulnerable telling of a true story. I came looking for answers to questions, insight into a lived experience that’s not my own. I got both of those, in greater detail and clarity than I had hoped for. But more so than these things, I found a challenge and encouragement, to live unreservedly for and with Jesus. A must read for literally anyone!
