Description

The issue of sexuality is a question with which all mainstream churches are now engaged. Attitudes are changing and it is often a painful journey for all concerned, however they may affected. Here is a practical and affirming book for everyone facing this controversial issue, whether they are a gay or lesbian Christian seeking to live with integrity, a friends or family member, or a church leader seeking understanding and guidance. The authors draw on the experiences of a wide circle of friends and acquaintances who have been personally involved with this issue. They use stories, reflections, readings, prayers, cartoons and top tips to suggest practical ways of managing and enriching relationships with God, the church, and other people. Upbeat, brave and open this is based on many Christians' lived experience and includes fifty first hand stories from men and women from all denominations: Brethren, Roman Catholic, high church Anglican, evangelical Anglican, Baptist, Salvation Army, Methodist, Assemblies of God, new church Charismatic, URC, Metropolitan Community Church, Quaker, and liberal Anglo-Catholic.
