This is a book for anyone who truly wants to look the issue in the eye.
This book is nothing new. I was expecting something a bit different than what I had seen from them so far, however this is not the case. Mr. Cannon seems to think he is some kind of authority, the kind that everyone listens to when he talks, however, this pretentious image bleeds through when speaking with him or reading his other works. He is not an ecclesiastical authority and has turned away from Orthodoxy because it did not suit his lifestyle preference. I can only hope that he and his life partner do not see this review, while I cannot prove it, I am sure it is them behind the unnecessary harassment.
Thank you Justin for helping me in my own journey to embrace myself as a gay man and as a Christian. God bless you!
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 $12 price tag alone. The second by 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 that suited for inclusion here.
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.
