    The Woman Who Outran the Devil

    The Extraordinary Story of One Woman's Search for Real Love

    Shirley Baskett's life was a mess. Drinking heavily and partying most weekends, she moved from one unstable lesbian relationship to another in a search for permanence and fulfillment. Increasingly she found herself torn between the world of sex, violence, and alcohol, and a Christian past she had rejected but could not shake off. Contemplating suicide, she offered up one last, hopeless prayer—and it was answered. This powerful account of a life utterly changed by God will prove an encouragement to all who have lost hope.

    "Shirley's story is proof positive that Jesus Christ changes lives, and has a most tender heart for the sexually and relationally broken."—Sue Bohlin Living Hope Ministries

    Shirley Baskett and her husband, Peter, now live in Melbourne, Australia, and have been married for more than twenty years. Shirley was ordained a minister in the Assemblies of God church in 1998 and is Director for Exodus Asia Pacific.
