Chris Glaser, M. Di. author of The Word Is Out: The Bible Reclaimed for Lesbians and Gay Men. Prayers for Bobb. s far more than a cautionary tale; it is also a story of a tragedy that marks one mother’s journey to redemption. This is a book that is every parent’s business, and, in fact, should be read by anyone who is interested in caring for children. Robb Forman Dew, author of The Family Heart. I hope this book will help religious people everywhere face their complicity in the evil way gay and lesbian children have been treated.

Several passages in the Hebrew Bible and New Testament have been interpreted as involving same-sex sexual acts and desires. Chapters 18 and 20 of Leviticus form part of the Holiness code and list prohibited forms of intercourse, including the following verses: "You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.

The man I picture is a real Christian

The man I picture is a real Christian. But you would do him wrong by asking him to separate out, at such moments, some exclusively religious element in his mind from all the rest-from his hearty social pleasure in a corporate act, his enjoyment of the hymns (and the crowd), his memory of other such services since childhood, his well-earned anticipation of rest after harvest or Christmas. They are all one in his mind. This would have been even truer of any ancient man, and especially of an ancient Jew. He was a peasant, very close to the soil

A lesbian woman has been left bloodied and bruised after she was attacked by a stranger who reigned punches on the terrified 20-year-old from behind. Charlie Graham had been on her way to meet a friend in Sunderland on Saturday morning when she was struck from behind. She was attacked by two homophobic thugs and has been left shaken by the attack. Charlie has now posted the images online in a bid to track down the attackers who she claimed pushed her to the ground, before fleeing from the scene.

No amount of nice words will erase the damage. Only honest reconsideration of your theology will bring healing. No one would be doubting that the Lord made men for women and women for men and that any deviation from that pattern was contrary to His design and intent

No amount of nice words will erase the damage. Please don't discount/deny the faith of your gay brothers and sisters. They have much to contribute to the church. No one would be doubting that the Lord made men for women and women for men and that any deviation from that pattern was contrary to His design and intent. As one New Testament scholar was candid enough to admit, it was clear to him that the Bible forbade homosexual practice, but when his own daughter came out as a lesbian, he changed his opinion on the subject.

This lively collection of 365 meditations explodes fundamentalist misconceptions of the Bible's stance on homosexuality and offers inspiration to lesbian and gay Christians. Richly written, evocative, and often surprising, this book reinterprets the Scriptures to offer meditations comprised of a brief Bible selection, insightful words of reflection, and a short prayer/affirmation.

Loved this book. Unlike the reviewer who gave it one star...I would definitely say this is a five star book!! It not only provides daily reflections for the LGBT community but embraces the bible as a book that welcomes the entire LGBT community. I've given over 10 copies of this book as gifts and everyone I've given this to has loved it. If you're looking for a book that beats you up for being LGBT...this isn't for you...but if you're looking for a book that provides you with the opportunity to see yourself as one of God's children, just the way you are...then look no further!!

I found this to just be average.

I was a little disappointed in this devotional. The actual book size is small and looks second rate (like someone printed the cover on their own printer). I would recommend checking out "Reconciling Journey" instead.
  • Kelenn
Really cool book. Thanks for the timely arrival & it was in good clean shape.
  • Coirad
I found this book to help me strengthen my own spiritual growth it's very easy to read, follow and understand.

This is the first book by Chris Glaser that I have read. I friend of mine gave it to our priest (Roman Catholic!)shortly before he had died. My priest gave it to me. It has become a daily ritual in my life, bringing me closer to my self, my God, and my true queer self. This is Definately a must read for gay/lesbian/bi/transgendered Christians everywhere!

It keeps me company. Glaser's daily meditations are a gift for all gay men and women. Please do yourself a favor and read his other wonderful book Reformation of the Heart,
I was very disappointed in this daily devotional. First, the book communicates the idea that the most important thing about anyone is her/his sexuality. That is nonsense! The most important thing about anyone is her/his relationship with God. That is foundational for every other relationship or activity in which we are involved. The author never even approaches this perspective. As a result the Bible verses are not the starting point for the topic of the day, but rather appear to be some convenient verse that is attached to support the author's perspective.

Next, a daily devotional should provide both conviction and encouragement for a person to be all that God desires her/him to be. The only times the author provides statements about conviction by God's spirit seem to be when others don't affirm the homosexual lifestyle. This is either intentional condemnation of others combined with self-affirmation or a blindness that comes from only reading the Bible to support one's own point of view. On the other hand, if you read a devotion like "My Utmost for His Highest" by Oswald Chambers, one often gets the feeling that God is speaking to the author and convicting him of sin, just like he is doing so to you. That is allowing God to truly speak through His word.

I really think this book is a waste of time. If you want to find ways to make the Bible support homosexuality, then go ahead and paint homosexuals as the poor or underprivileged, but one should also be honest enough to face the clear teachings from the Bible that state homosexuality is sin. This book does not do that and cannot, therefore, be considered a Biblical perspective on even the one aspect of life it discusses.
