Uncommon Calling

Amazon reader review: Chris Glaser's book poignantly and beautifully describes his struggle to find a place in the church as a gay man. Reading Chris' reflections on his own and the church's struggle with his sexuality and with the place of homosexuality within the church was an healing experience for me. And his theology is good too! A must for any gay Christian.

 

 


 

 

 

Coming Out as a Sacrament

Well-known Christian gay activist Glaser (Uncommon Calling, John Knox, 1996) asserts that the Christian Scriptures themselves defend the self-affirmation of gays and lesbians in the Church and provide pertinent examples of courage and openness toward outcasts from the lives and teachings of Moses, Jesus, the Psalmist, and others. He also provides seven sample rituals of commitment and celebration (not including, it should be noted, marriage) for the Church's rejected children. Likely to become indispensable for gay and lesbian Christians, Glaser's book will be widely discussed.

 

 

 

 

The Word Is Out: Daily Reflections on the Bible for Lesbians and Gay Men

Amazon reader review: Just like the Christian daily devotionals we have all grown accustomed to, this delightful book fits in the palm of your hand, and is arranged by the day of the year, with a scripture for each day. A short story follows with application to gays and lesbians, as well as a short prayer. Very inspirational.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Coming Out to God: Prayers for Lesbians and Gay Men, Their Families and Friends

Organized around the themes "created in God's image," "called as community," and "citizens of a commonwealth," this collection of two months' worth of prayers has theological depth and contemporary relevance. Both the prose introductions to the themes and the prayers themselves encourage honest struggle and genuine faith and confront the paradoxical relationship of life and death, suffering and love.

 

 

 

 

Reformation of the Heart: Seasonal Meditations of a Gay Christian

While it occurs near the close of the calendar year, Advent marks the commencement of the liturgical one, beginning the Christian calendar afresh with its weeks of hushed expectation. In Reformation of the Heart: Seasonal Meditations of a Gay Christian, Chris Glaser challenges readers to emulate Mary, who prayed, "Let it be with me according to your Word." Glaser's honest daily meditations will help many gay and lesbian Christians understand the Advent season (and other liturgical events) in fresh and comforting ways.
