Great, thought provoking book. Michaelson tackled this difficult subject with intelligence, humor, and grace. The issue of whether or not homosexuality is portrayed as a forbidden sin in the Bible and Torah or not is often every emotional. People on both sides of the argument become angry and hateful people when they argue their case. Thankfully, Michaelson has listened to the hearts and concerns of those with whom he disagrees with and tackles the most intimate, and difficult aspects of this dilemma throughly. I enjoyed the author's intelligent writing style, but I appreciated his love for those on both sides of the issue most of all. I would quickly recommend this book to anyone seeking to learn more about this subject. Thank you Jay Michaelson.

Basing his "theology" on love Michaelson summarizes much modern thought on gay history and spirituality but does it in a very unique blend of fact and overall Biblical meaning. Just as Jesus summarized the two greatest commandments for us, Michaelson puts gay acceptance and spirituality in the framework of Biblical love, justice and mercy. I highly recommend this book.

I'm not a man of much words. I will summarize it with this ones: It changed my life... not saying that after reading it things are going extraordinary, BUT it did helped me find who I really am, it helped me realize how amazing is God's love. It's profound, since the author is a scholar, he does know what he is talking about, and so refreshing to read.

If you are having any problems with your faith and your sexuality, I HIGHLY recommend you to read this book.-I ask for forgiveness to the author, because this words aren't definitively enough to express this book's accomplishment-

Best whishes! Hope it comes in handy as it did to me.

God bless you!

I have heard Jay speak many times. He is always so passionate and real. His book reflects his passion and puts a perspective out there that we don't always see. He goes to Universities, conferences, temples and more to speak and promote his book. He is very dynamic and always a delight to hear. He also writes for many publications and does not only focus on his book title, rather uses a more holistic approach to his writings and interviews. Sometimes I wonder how so much knowledge can be stored in one mind. I highly recommend.

I love Jay Michaelson's approch to the controversial ideological debate of Gay Marriage and God. Love that he breaks down very complex text to be very detailed. You can not get this confused after you have read it. I have spent many nights just reflecting on his words that I read. This is one awesome book!!!

Jay Michaelson is, successfully,attempting to redefine for the religious community- gay and straight alike- a new conversation on homosexuality. A conversation that is based on concepts of love, justice and grace. Michelson's personal experience and anecdotes allow the reader to get not only a scholarly view of the issue but a personal one too. Great, important book.
