A Letter to my Congregation

Over half of the total LGB population identifies as bisexual, less than a third as gay and less than a fifth as lesbian. Proportionally, it would not be unreasonable to rearrange the letters in LGBT to spell BGLT. Yet there is overwhelming silence in our churches around Europe on the subject of bisexuality, despite slow but increasing acceptance of homosexuality and same-sex marriage in many countries. This silence has a devastating effect on the mental health of bisexual people. In Bi: The Way, Carol Shepherd charts the history and science behind bisexuality and challenges the stereotypes around bisexual people. Bisexual Christians across Europe are given a voice, producing rich data that should be of use to pastors and supporters of LGBT+ people for years to come. Bi: The Way is the missing book on the LGBT Christian bookshelf. Bi: the Book!

Dr Carol A Shepherd is a global expert in the field of bisexual Christian identities, and the author of Bisexuality in the Western Christian Church: The Damage of SIlence (Palgrave/Springer International).

Bi: the way

Same-sex marriage may be legal in America, but its still far from the accepted norm, especially in Christian circles. So where can LBGTQ Christians who desire a lifelong, covenantal relationship look for dating and marriage advice when Christian relationship guides have not only simply ignored but actively excluded same-sex couples? David and Constantino Khalaf struggled to find relational role models and guidance throughout dating, their engagement, and the early months of their marriage. To fill this void, they began writing Modern Kinship, a blog exploring the unique challenges queer couples face on the road from singleness to marital bliss. Part personal reflection, part commentary, and full of practical advice, Modern Kinship explores the biblical concept of kinship from a twenty-first-century perspective. This important resource tackles subjects such as dating outside of smartphone apps, overcoming church and family issues, meeting your partners parents, deciding when and how to have children, and finding your mission as a couple. Modern Kinship encourages queer Christian couples to build God-centered partnerships of trust and mutuality.

The book of queer prophets

As a teenager and young man, Justin Lee felt deeply torn. Nicknamed "God Boy" by his peers, he knew that he was called to a life in the evangelical Christian ministry. But Lee harbored a secret: He also knew that he was gay. In this groundbreaking book, Lee recalls the events--his coming out to his parents, his experiences with the "ex-gay" movement, and his in-depth study of the Bible--that led him, eventually, to self-acceptance. But more than just a memoir, TORN provides insightful, practical guidance for all committed Christians who wonder how to relate to gay friends or family members--or who struggle with their own sexuality. Convinced that "in a culture that sees gays and Christians as enemies, gay Christians are in a unique position to bring peace," Lee demonstrates that people of faith on both sides of the debate can respect, learn from, and love one another.
