Inhaltsangabe: Torn 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 h... Full description
"With gracious spirit, intelligent sense of proportion and, above all, prayerful and rigorous honesty in pursuing a deeply biblical perspective, Justin Lee engages the churches' latest sad assault against folks they still have failed to hear. What he's lived and learned and written needs to be received with gratitude and given prayerful reflection - not to agree or disagree with this or that, but to listen with the love that fulfills the law and the prophets."--Dr. Ralph Blair, Psychotherapist and Founder of Evangelicals Concerned, Inc.

"This book is full of three things that are not always much in evidence in our debates on sexuality--fresh air, common sense and manifest love of Christ. What makes it different is that it is not essentially about arguing a case but abut bridging the gaps of understanding and sympathy that (inside and outside the Church) have distorted or muffled the overwhelming miracle of Gods gift in Christ and in Scripture. I welcome it very warmly." Honorable Reverend Dr. Rowan Williams"
"Justin didn't leave the church when he realized he was gay...he has been too determined to show them how much he loves them...This is the story of how one Christian man's faith taught him to accept himself, serve others who are in need, and bridge the gap for those who do not always understand."
Jennifer Knapp, Singer/Songwriter, Founder of InsideOutFaith.org"
"This is the most important book I've read in years, and it will be the first I recommend to anyone interested in bridging the divide between the LGBT community and the church. Justin has given us a precious gift with this story. May we receive it with the same courage and faith with which it was delivered." Rachel Held Evans, blogger, author of Evolving in Monkey Town and A Year of Biblical Womanhood"
"In TORN, Justin Lee blends simplicity, clarity, humility, honesty, and vulnerability in a gracious and eye-opening way. The book brings fresh perspectives to old and polarized debates, and it offers a wise and faithful way forward for pastors and other Christian leaders, parents and other family members, not to mention gay men and women themselves. This is the book that every Evangelical, Charismatic, and Roman Catholic Christian should read on the question of homosexuality."
