Publisher's Summary

In this Lambda Literary award-winning title, author Toby Johnson explores how the rise of gay identity has become an important part of contemporary religious development.

This dramatic transformation has resulted due to the perspective of gay men; their ability to step outside the assumptions and conventions of culture and see things from a different point of view.

This audiobook will reward readers seeking new insight into faith as well as culture, myth and traditions.

DON'T MISS THIS BOOK !

I am humbled by the scope of this stunning, award winning book by Toby Johnson. Gay Spirituality: Gay Identity and the Transformation of Human Consciousness delivers exactly what its title suggests, fascinating and informing the reader as it does so. One is invited to view the rich variety found in our history, seeing that there are reasons aplenty for gay people to share our tears as well as our laughter. And it is clear that there is pride to be found in claiming one's fair share of membership in this "aristocracy of the considerate and the plucky." Many thanks are due to the author for giving us such a readable, timely and timeless rendering of our story. It is a history well told, one that we did not learn in school - and it is remarkable. Don Clark, Ph.D. (Author of Loving Someone Gay)

Any additional comments?

I am a homosexual Christian whose sole reason not to kill himself is the Christianity. This book shook my Christian beliefs therefore made me depressed.
