A LIFE OF UNLEARNING: A Preacher’s Struggle With His Homosexuality, Church and Faith

What do you do when you’re a high profile preacher in Australia’s mega churches, who has invested over 20 years trying to change your sexual orientation? Anthony’s battle included gay conversion programs, exorcisms and 16 years of marriage, but eventually he could not deny the reality that he had fallen in love with a man. Anthony Venn-Brown preached weekly to one of Australia’s largest congregations. When A Life Of Unlearning was first published in 2004, he had no idea that it would become a national bestseller, selling out its print-run not once but twice, and that people would pay hundreds of dollars for a second-hand copy when it went out of print. In addition, the book spawned two LGBTI organisations, saved some people from resorting to suicide, and helped others find the strength to escape cults. Anthony acknowledges that he has also received thousands of emails from readers all over the world who were touched by his story and that many read it from cover to cover in just one sitting. Readers have praised its honesty as brutal, frightening and even disturbing. Now, a decade later, Anthony is a respected LGBT community leader and this beloved Australian bestseller is available again in a revised and updated third edition.
