Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

A lively collection of 365 daily meditations that explodes fundamentalist misconceptions of the Bible's stance on homosexuality and offers inspiration for lesbian and gay Christians. Richly written, evocative, and often surprising.

I was given this devotional book by my mentor upon coming out at the age of 25. I have since bought and give this book a half a dozen times for others.

This book is just what the doctor ordered! It has small and focused messages that are very encouraging. If you like this book, you may also enjoy books by Barbara Brown Taylor. She has an inclusive view of the gospel and brings new light to Bible stories we've learned since we were babies, growing up on the 2nd pew, next to the organ.
