One man's struggle to reconcile who God created him to be - a gay man - with whom God called him to be - a minister. "There is a heartached and hope in this piercingly honest book . . . Those who really hear his story will be proud to support him in this powerful faith journey, and will make his concerns their own." -- Sydney Thomson Brown and Robert McAfee Brown. "A compelling deeply personal odyssey of a young Gay Christian's spiritual, sexual and political awakening." -- Malcolm Boyd, author of Are You Running with Me Jesus? "Glaser writes with candor and courage. His struggle to integrate spirituality and sexuality is instructive for all Christians." -- Nancy A. Hardesty, author of Inclusive Language in the Church. "Glaser writes out of pain and hope, with passion for the church and enormous integrity as a gay Christian." -- James B. Nelson, professor of Christian ethics, United Theological Seminar of the Twin Cities. "I consider Chris Glaser to be one of the pioneers in the work of reconciliation between the gay and lesbian community and the Christian faith." -- The Reverend Troy D. Perry, founder, Metropolitan Community Churches. Chris Glaser is a widely known lecturer and writer. He has served on the Presbyterian Task Force to Study Homosexuality and, for ten years, was the director of the Lazarus Project, a ministry of reconciliation between the church and the lesbian and gay community.
