Conducting a nonthreatening and accessible conversation about an issue that is presently tearing many churches and denominations apart, Out of the Shadows, into the Light focuses on communication in hopes of creating reconciliation for the Christian community.
“This is an incredibly timely resource for seminary and church classrooms. It contains fresh arguments and keen insights about sexuality and the Bible, faith community life, and power dynamics in the broader society that are relevant to a range of communities. All the authors are candid and refreshingly nuanced in their approaches. This collection is so valuable because its discussions go much deeper than polarizing us vs. them debates about homosexuality and caricatured presentations of both sides. Instead it offers concrete ideas for better pastoral and communal practices that are rooted in commonly held Christian ideals.”
