Editorial Reviews

Review

"Blessed Bi Spirit" (an unforgivable title, but still a worthwhile book) is a kaleidoscopic anthology of the works of bisexual men and women of all faiths who are eager to explore the impact of their sexuality on their spiritual lives. The results are uneven, but most of the essays are engaging and more modestly expressed than "Gay Spirituality." Readers who can't abide Johnson will enjoy reading "The Holy Leper and the Bisexual Christian," in which Amanda Udis-Kessler explores the implications of a God who "won't let mere human boundaries stop love." And Debra Kolodny herself makes a fine contribution to the volume with a piece entitled "Hear, I Pray You, This Dream Which I Have Dreamed," an intriguing meditation on Jewish identity and bisexuality. The contributors to "Blessed Bi Spirit" have fruitfully discussed what Kolodny says are the "three things we are not supposed to talk about in 'polite' company: sex, religion, and politics." Many of the authors--like Raven Kaldera, who offers an invented three-way marriage ceremony--probably find Toby Johnson's way of doing theology congenial. Other contributors are more interested in making their own inherited religious traditions, be they Judaism, Christianity, Hinduism, or Buddhism, work. (Beliefnet, Sept. 2000) -- From Beliefnet

“Reading Blessed Bi Spirit is a life-and-spirit affirming experience…. A highly recommended book for persons of all genders.” -- SageWoman, Spring 2001

Format: Paperback
My lover/partner/friend/conspirator gave me this book last night. As he walked away, I clutched it to my chest and began to cry.... I have not finished reading it, but have only put it down long enough to sleep a few hours(at my lover/partner/friend/conspirator's insistance), eat and now write. I have not been so overwhelmed with a feeling of coming home since reading Bi Any Other Name ten years ago.This is, literally, the answer to my prayers! As a bisexual Catholic I have struggled many years with my spiritual and sexual identities with little guidance from others who could not understand and therefore could not speak.At last I have found others who share my struggle! Thanks to all who helped make this book possible! I hope you are as richly blessed as this book has so richly blessed me.

First, a conflict of interest disclosure: I am one of the contributors to this anthology. And I must insist that you buy this book anyway. It is one of the best anthologies on the bisexual experience I've encountered, and believe me I've read them all. Deb Kolodny has a good ear and a deft editing hand, and she compiled a superb collection of insightful, well-written pieces. The anthology reflects the glorious diversity of the bi movement, and the unique contributions of bisexuals to their spiritual communities.
