This books rendering for the Kindle is only adequate. Some of the text and headings have been misaligned, and there is no `active' table of contents. That said, it does not take long to flip through the book and place ones own bookmarks as needed.
Four personal testimonies are followed by three important and stimulating articles. The first, by Bishop Jessep is a historical and theological tour-de-force and is well worth $8 price tag alone. The second by a Fr. George Battelle is a fascinating personal and historical reflection on over thirty years of involvement in both Orthodoxy and gay rights. Finally there is an article on Biblical references and their interpretation by Mr. Cannon himself, which though having been published before, is more than suited for inclusion here, as it again emphasises the need for scriptural reflection as opposed to blindly accepting the `fundamentalist' interpretation of scripture so often bandied about.
In his preface Mr. Cannon states that his "prayer is that this anthology will open up dialogue and discussion within the Orthodox Church". I am not sure that this can be so fully realised in such a slim volume as this, but it certainly is a good starting point and as such this book ought to be read by both those `involved' in this debate, as well as those interested in this awakening dialogue within orthodoxy regarding this subject.
