Overview

'This We Believe: The Christian Case for Gay Civil Rights' demonstrates how traditional Christian beliefs about homosexuality are hurting all of the church, especially its most vulnerable members: young gay people who are convinced that their very essence is sinful. It summarizes the latest scientific research, current Biblical scholarship, and the teachings of Jesus to show why an ever-growing number of Christian leaders and laypeople now support marriage equality and other civil rights for gay, lesbian, and transgender people.

"This book is a veritable 'CliffsNotes' on what we now know about homosexuality and its relationship to Christian faith. In a few short pages, C.S. Pearce debunks long-held myths, clarifies Scripture and argues for a much needed rethinking of the Church's traditional stand. Just reading these words will reassure young gay and lesbian people that God loves them just as they are, while challenging those who are not so sure that perhaps they have put God's love in too small a box." -The Rt. Rev. V. Gene Robinson, Bishop of New Hampshire.
