Format: Paperback
Tigert has started to open the door on Christian homosexuals and the oppression they face within their own churches. She brings the reader face to face with personal accounts of the struggles that lesbian and gay people go through in society, but more specifically in church. She challanges the logic behind the homophobia. She helps explain the phenomonon of "splitting" and the impact it has on those who are not white male heterosexuals. For those who of us who feel called by God to ordained ministry, but who hesitate to heed his call because of the overwhelming response of congregational segragation of our homosexual being, this is a book to relate to. Excelent! I eagerly await further books by Leanne McCall Tigert.

Leanne McCall Tigert beautifully and painfully captures what it is to discover yourself gay within a mainline denomination. Her approach is refreshingly honest, illuminating the struggles and the celebrations of lesbigay Christians. Read it, as I did, and discover yourself within her story. Fabulous reading for anyone struggling with the church and homosexuality, and a must read for any lesbigay person contemplating a call to the ordained ministry.
