The Word Is Out

Daily Reflections on the Bible for Lesbians and Gay Men
  • By Chris R. Glaser
Synopsis: Though many think of the Bible as monolithic, that is, of a single point of view, the Bible is rather a compendium of viewpoints on a variety of issues. To enter the Bible is like entering any community: there may be some common beliefs, but there is also disagreement. The dialogue of the Bible therefore invites rather than inhibits further conversation. Lesbians and gay men know all too well the experience of having to leave families, friends, hometowns, and even their faith traditions to be blessed as they are. Nevertheless, many still struggle to maintain an authentic faith that also affirms and recognizes their right to joyously celebrate their biblical heritage. Chris Glaser liberates the Bible from those who would hold it hostage to an anti-gay agenda. In this inspiring and moving collection of 365 daily meditations, the Bible's good news "comes out" to meet us all with love, justice, meaning, and hope. Author Biography: Chris Glaser is the author of nine books on the spiritual life, including Reformation of the Heart and Communion of Life: Meditations for the New Millennium. A graduate of Yale Divinity School, he travels widely from his home in Atlanta, Georgia, as a speaker and as a leader of workshops and retreats.
