"With a keen eye to the pain, nuance, and hope of the moment, Tyler Francke uses this fascinating and well-told story to explore the evolving evangelical conversation about same-sex relationships and the dignity of LGBT people."
Tom Krattenmaker, USA Today contributing columnist and author of "The Evangelicals You Don't Know"
"Reoriented opens up a safe conversation on Christianity, sexual orientation and gender identity. This book should be read as part of a group discussion in church-based teen ministries, high school, or college-based gay-straight alliances. Parents who read this book would gain tremendous understanding into the struggles of Christian LGBT teens and their friends who support them."
Ed Ness, communications director, The Evangelical Network
"Francke avoids easy answers; this novel is an invitation to think about our positions and presuppositions and to carefully consider the consequences of our beliefs. It's a starting point, not an ending."
Dan Wilkinson, blogger
"[O]ne thing is for certain, both nonbelievers and believers alike will find Reoriented a spirited and delightful work that confronts long and deeply held beliefs regarding homosexuality head-on."
Race Hochdorf, blogger and skeptic
From the Back Cover
Worldviews collide when the spirited D.J. Martinez, the only openly gay student at his conservative Christian college, sets out to start an on-campus support group for LGBT individuals. Joined in his quest by the kind and sensitive Ally Holman, D.J. repeatedly clashes with John Brock, the brilliant moralist at the head of student government -- which alone has the power to approve or deny the proposed club. As the pivotal vote draws near, the three will find their deepest assumptions challenged and every aspect of their faith tested, as they learn new ways to live in a complicated world and discover what -- if anything -- is truly worth fighting for.
