Queer Lessons for Churches on the Straight and Narrow

Queer Lessons for Churches on the Straight and Narrow

9780989575317-cov.indd“While there is no starting over, this book is about imagining new pathways into old conversations. It is an invitation to question the terms of the debates into which we’ve been drawn. It is a book less concerned with answering questions and, instead, aims toward cultivating the imagination necessary to ask new questions. And new questions about queer lives and Christian faith couldn’t come at a more appropriate time.”

 

Polarizing debates are raging over queer lives in churches and the public square. But what if we were able to start the conversation over? Imagine the entire dialogue about LGBTQ lives and Christian faith had its start in your living room or your own local congregation. If you could ask the first question, what would it be? While there is no starting over, this book is about imagining new pathways into old conversations. It is an invitation to question the terms of our typical debates over sexuality and faith. Less concerned with answering questions, it aims to cultivate our imagination for asking new questions. Primary among them is this: “What can all Christians learn from LGBTQ people that will enhance our lives and strengthen our communities of faith?”
