Queer Lessons for Churches on the Straight and Narrow



Winner of the National Bronze Medal for Gay/Lesbian/Bi/Trans Non-Fiction in the 2014 Independent Publisher Book Awards,¬†Queer Lessons for Churches on the Straight and Narrow¬†is about changing the questions we ask about sexuality, gender identity, and faith.¬†Sanders helps us imagine new pathways into old conversations by¬†shifting our attitude from one of¬†suspicious scrutiny¬†toward LGBTQ people to one of¬†compassionate¬†curiosity. Less concerned with answering questions, it aims to cultivate our imagination for asking¬†new¬†questions.¬†Sanders asks,¬†“What can¬†all¬†Christians learn from LGBTQ people that will enhance our lives and strengthen our communities of faith?”¬†Lessons are offered on the themes of¬†relationship,¬†community,¬†faithfulness,¬†love,¬†violence, and¬†forgiveness.
