About the Author:

Gary David Comstock is the author of several books concerning gay and lesbian issues within the church, including Gay Theology Without Apology and Unrepentant, Self-Affirming, Practicing: Lesbian/Bisexual/Gay People within Organized Religion. He has also taught courses in Sociology at Wesleyan University in Middleton, Connecticut.

From Booklist:

The interviews with African American religious leaders that make up this book amount to a conversation of interest to those concerned with the church as a welcoming community as well as those interested in current discussion of various denominations' stances regarding gay and lesbian members. Comstock is clear and persuasive as the central voice in the book, yet his primary role is that of listener, and he plays it brilliantly. Thus we clearly hear a who's who of African American leaders from a variety of denominations addressing how to welcome lesbians and gay men into African American congregations. We also witness a dialogue in which communities of individuals often excluded by portions of Christianity that fancy themselves to be "mainstream" draw on experience to teach each other about being welcoming communities. These conversations have much to teach all the churches. Open-hearted readers stand to be touched and possibly changed. Steven Schroeder
