The Gay Preacher's Wife: How My Gay Husband Deconstructed My Life and Reconstructed My Faith based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
“The Gay Preacher’s Wife” is a memoir that reveals the multiple decades journey of its author as she honestly and forthrightly explores the black church, its theology and practices regarding sexuality, her personal self-examination and growth into self-awareness, her marriage/family life, and her transformation into seeing herself, her family, her faith, Jesus and doctrine from a new enlightened perspective. Lydia Meredith in raw, shocking, and passionate openness exposes the good and the not so good of her childhood, her church experiences, her family, and the depths of soul, thoughts and actions. She tells the reader her story of love and deep pain and her valiant effort to get through each event of life all while denying unpleasant and ugly truths. This memoir chronicles well and leads the reader to how Lydia Meredith undertook the seemingly insurmountable task of rebuilding her soul, her spirit, her theology, her family, in essence, her life. The foundation for this overhaul was Lydia’s discovery of Jesus’ ministry and teaching. This discovery launched, for Lydia, achieving healing, recovery and preparation for His service in the future. This moving memoir is worth every page!
