  • If an Amazon logo appears instead of the book simply refresh the screen.

  • Books and authors were added to the list based upon a general question that was posed to the bulletin board and to fellow ministers. That being: "What books and/or authors have changed your life?" The variety of titles, authors and subjects beautifully reflects the rich diversity of religious and personal experiences in our Christian community.

  • Books / authors are referred to us through our readers and co-workers in the ministry. Opinions stated by the authors may not reflect GALIP's opinion nor may all of these authors be 'pro' gay in their theology.  If any book listed on our site contains anti-gay material please contact us by clicking here.
