"The best guide to good sex I have seen! Miguel offers us a compassionate, liberating, thoughtful, honest, and well informed manual to the joys of loving, sexual relationships at their most ethical and transformative. He mines scripture and tradition for their life-giving possibilities, analyzes our society, and offers support for everyone seeking to negotiate the church's mixed messages, the right wing's harmful uses of religion, and popular culture's degradations of sex."
—Rita Nakashima Brock, director of Faith Voices for the Common Good, and senior editor in religion at The New Press
"De La Torre has given us all a marvelous gift; not simply justification for throwing away old oppressive models for sexuality and faith, but a new way of seeing ourselves, our sexual giftedness, and each other as we seek God's kingdom together."
—Harry Knox, director of religion and faith program, Human Rights Campaign Foundation
"Finally, a theologian who takes sexuality seriously enough to offer a sense of the sacred in our most intimate being"
—Marc H. Ellis, professor of Jewish studies, Baylor University
"De La Torre is . . . a progressive evangelical with a razor sharp mind who measures justice from the point of view of the oppressed. . . . A Lily Among the Thorns is destined to become a classic."
—John Raines, professor of religion, Temple University
