Come Home: Reclaiming Spirituality and Community as Gay Men and Lesbians

 
Come Home‘s five sections include: Welcoming God’s Acceptance, Receiving Our Inheritance, Discerning Our Call, Making Our Witness, and Declaring Our Vision. Come Home! is one of Chris Glaser’s best books. Now the addition of five new chapters has expanded and improved it. Episcopal Bishop John Shelby Spong called the first edition “powerful, sensitive, and provocative. . . . Christians, gay and straight, need this book if we are to be the body of Christ.”
 

 
Reviews

Of Come Home The Right Reverend John Shelby Spong, Episcopal Bishop of Newark, said “Powerful, sensitive, and provocative. . . . Glaser stands inside his own humanity as a gay male and hears the word of God through the Bible. Christians, gay and straight, need this book if we are to be the body of Christ.”

The Rev. Carter Heyward called Come Home, “an enthusiastic compelling testimony to the power of faith in the lives of many gay and lesbian Christians.”

Virginia Ramey Mollenkott said, “If courage, honesty, and insight are beautiful, then this is one beautiful book. . . . I rejoice that in this book all the gay men and lesbian women who have been robbed of their spirituality are issued an urgent invitation: Come home!”
