Undivided: Coming Out, Becoming Whole, and Living Free from Shame by Vicky Beeching

One Woman’s Fight for LGBT Equality in the Church

“Get ready. This book will pull you in, shake you up, pierce your heart, and leave you changed. A stunner of a debut memoir, Undivided is vulnerable and unflinching, tender and brave.”
—RACHEL HELD EVANS, author of Searching for Sunday and Inspired

Vicky Beeching, called “arguably the most influential Christian of her generation” in The Guardian, was an international poster girl for evangelical Christianity as a recording artist and worship leader, but she was living with a debilitating inner battle: she was gay. The tens of thousands of traditional Christians she sang in front of were unanimous in their view: They staunchly opposed same-sex relationships and saw homosexuality as a grievous sin. Vicky knew that if she ever spoke up about her identity it would cost her everything. But eventually, she did.

Since then, Beeching has become a champion for others, fighting for LGBT equality in the church and in the corporate sector. Undivided: Coming Out, Becoming Whole, and Living Free from Shame is her story of courage and hope, a valiant attempt to show that LGBTQ+ people of faith should be fully affirmed, and a call for all people to celebrate diversity, live authentically, and become undivided.
