Gay.

The word seemed to hold the weight of eternity within its single syllable.

As strange as it may seem, in all the years I had struggled with my sexuality, the idea that I could be ‘gay’ had simply never crossed my mind. I was a Christian! That was my whole life! And Christians weren’t gay.’

This could be the most important book you read this year.

It’s a memoir.

An exploration of what is, and what could be.

Most of all, it’s a clarion call to the church – to rediscover the love that Jesus called us to. Unconditionally.

‘So many gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people give up on Christianity because they cannot reconcile who they are with what they were brought up to believe that the Bible teaches about sexuality. Here is a wonderfully told story of a brave young homosexual man who has struggled to hold onto his faith while still affirming himself as gay. This is a must-read.’ Tony Campolo

I believe that what is going on here is crucial for the destiny of the Church. Especially since [the Gay Christian Network] recognises [both sides in the gay/Christian debate], and that there is an ability to love and accept across those lines.

Justin Lee is a courageous, kind, thoughtful and emotionally sophisticated gay man who obviously loves Jesus and is fearless in his pursuit of God's reality. Here's hoping (and praying) that more of us straight followers of Jesus learn from his example and find a way to follow in Justin's footsteps.

What makes this book different is that it is not essentially about arguing a case but about bridging the gaps of understanding and sympathy that have distorted or muffled the overwhelming miracle of God's gift in Christ and in Scripture. I welcome it very warmly.
