Overview

From the noted author of the best-selling What the Bible Really Says About Homosexuality comes this insightful, powerful, and remarkably honest reflection on culture, sexuality, and church.

What do you do when you've outgrown your religion? When your life experience exceeds that of your clergy? When the learning that life forced on you challenges your religious beliefs? When you can no longer deny that something new is afoot and your church is out of touch.

These are the questions that Daniel Helminiak raises, and then, in a concise way, interprets for anyone (not just those in the gay and lesbian community) who feels like an outcast within their own church. Helminiak ties his theories with classic biblical stories, parables that reveal both a compassionate Christ and a hypocritical church. Through inspiring essays and reflective teachings, Helminiak demonstrates how one can transcend doubt and regain his or her own spirituality and faith.

Daniel A. Helminiak was ordained a Catholic priest in Rome, earned a PhD in theology at Boston College and Andover Newton Theological School, taught at the graduate Oblate School of Theology in San Antonio, earned a PhD in psychology at the University of Texas at Austin, and is currently associate professor of psychology at the University of West Georgia. He is a fellow of the American Association for Pastoral Counselors and is licensed as a professional counselor in the state of Georgia. He the author of What the Bible Really Says About Homosexuality, Meditation without Myth, and Sex and the Sacred.
