Coming out in Christianity: Religion, Identity and Community

by Melissa M. Wilcox - £17.99  Indiana University Press (2003)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780253216199 | ISBN 10: 0253216192

For many Christians, “homosexuality” is an issue. It is often considered a matter of “us” versus “them,” or worse, for gay men and women, a question of their behavior, not something intrinsic to their identity.
 
Coming Out in Christianity examines this conflict from the point of view of a group of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Christians. It focuses on current and former members of two Metropolitan Community Churches in California that serve predominantly LGBT Christians.
 
Based on original research, including more than 70 in-depth interviews, the book explores life histories, current beliefs, cultural settings, and community influences to learn what helped each forge an identity as both gay and Christian. These powerful case studies will help to deepen our understanding of both religion and personal identity.
