About the Author

Michael S. Piazza is a spiritual visionary, author and social justice advocate who currently serves as Dean and Senior Pastor of the Cathedral of Hope, the world’s largest inclusive and progressive Christian church with a primary outreach to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered people. Under Rev. Piazza's courageous leadership, the Cathedral of Hope is setting new standards for compassionate evangelism, inclusive worship and national ministries, while at the same time making religious history.

A native of Georgia, Rev. Piazza recently celebrated thirty years in ministry and has pastored churches in Texas, Georgia, Oklahoma and Florida. He holds Bachelor's Degrees in history and psychology from Valdosta State College in Georgia and a Master of Divinity from the Candler School of Theology, Emory University in Atlanta.

From 1973 to 1981, Rev. Piazza pastored United Methodist Churches, becoming an associate minister of a Metropolitan Community Church (MCC) congregation in Atlanta in 1981. From 1983 to 1987, he pastored St. Luke's MCC in Jacksonville, Florida and came to Dallas in November of 1987 to pastor the Cathedral of Hope.

The Cathedral of Hope has five weekly services for its 3,000-member congregation. National church ministries, outreach programs, internet media and counseling services touch thousands of lives each day. Cathedral television ministries broadcast a weekly message of hope to a potential audience of 7 million households in 38 cities across the U.S.

The Advocate magazine named Rev. Piazza one of the most influential people in the gay and lesbian movement in August 1999. He has five published books including Holy Homosexuals, Rainbow Family Values and Mourning to Morning. The fifth, Queeries: Questions Lesbians and Gays have for God, was recently released. Rev. Piazza and his partner, Bill, have been together since 1980 and have two daughters.

Michael Piazza makes his case elequently in a book suitible for lay people and clergy alike. Piazza shows a deep respect for scripture and the authority of God's word, while educating the reader on context in both Hebrew and and Greek society. This is a great addition for those struggling with their sexual orientation and faith. Thank you Michael!

I purchased this book with the hope to be given a compelling argument in favor or against homosexuals. However the book is loosely based on the Bible and makes outlandish accusations and assumptions that are not supported in the Bible or even history. Example: gays are blessed because they represent both masculine and feminism. Ya I have searched the whole Bible and have not found that evident. There are better , more researched books out their to read on the subject.

Although I am not gay, this book was still very informative and enlightening for me. I was raised in a very religious background and this book really takes religion seriously while pointing out some of the misguidedness of man.

This book contains information that is helpful to combat people who say the Bible condemns homosexuality. It also shows that people do not choose their sexual preference -- we are born to love the people we love.
