Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this revised and expanded best seller, Rogers argues for equal rights in both the church and society for lesbians, gays, bisexuals, and transgendered people. He describes how he moved away from opposition to support, charts the church's history of using biblical passages to oppress marginalized groups, argues for a Christ-centered reading of Scripture, debunks stereotypes about gays and lesbians, and explores texts used most frequently against homosexuals and gay ordination.

In this newly revised edition, he maps the recent progress of major U.S. denominations toward full equality for LGBT persons, adds a new chapter that examines how Scripture is best interpreted by Jesus' redemptive life and ministry, and updates his own efforts and experiences. The book also includes a guide for group study or personal reflection.

Jack Rogers does a fantastic job of tying faith and homosexuality in a neat bow. This book has been exactly what I've been looking for when trying to summarize my beliefs and my partner. Definitely for anyone who finds themselves wondering if Jesus and a same sex partner can go hand in hand, or for someone who is interested in learning more.
