Format: Paperback
The author's must be commended for this original book. It explores the reality of the religious experience of lesbians, gay men, bisexuals and transgendered people in a way that embraces both the theoretical and the practical.
The book would be best used as a group study ressource (although I have not yet been involved in its use as such) as it opens up the issues for discussion at the end of each chapter. Each member of the group wil, hopefully, feel empowered to see value in their own realtionship with God, no matter that it may not fit within orthodox parameters.
The book has only two weaknesses. Firstly, it approaches the LGBT religious debate from the perspective that we have just as much right as anyone to experience God. Although this point is true and well made by the authors, less emphasis is put on the value of the Christian message to LGBT people. From my reading of it, it appears to be assumed that Christianity is there and the debate is all about LGBT access. If I have missed something I apologise.
Secondly, the illustrations appear out of place in an otherwise professionally put together work,
Hopefully this book will become the standard resource for LGBT Group study throughout the English speaking world. I feel certain that the obvious hard work and passion of the authors will bear fruit and bring people to Christ. Dr Staurt and her co-authors have much to be proud of in this work.
