This is restorative justice at its personal and biblical best.
Peggy Green makes real and concrete what saints have said before:
'If your interpretation of Scripture is not leading you to love,
then change your interpretation until it does'.

-Richard Rohr

 
I go away from it ever more bewildered that people would waste their energy on hatred.

Sometimes when I read a book, I fall in love.  Sometimes it's a character. Sometimes it's a premise. . . . The first thing you should know . . . it is a work of joy.

A beautiful, touching, and eloquent book showing how people move past the pain of religious disapproval. I go away from it ever more bewildered that anyone would waste their energy on hatred.

Rev. Lizann Bassham

. . . her own family's breaking apart. . . and the reconciliation and forgiveness that wove them back together [are] the prologue and epilogue for the journey of eight people who committed themselves to a powerful process. . .

Sexual orientation, gender identity... biblical authority, divergence in interpretation of unsettling Biblical texts....the speakers are truly diving deep to touch on feelings, fears and experiences that have shaped their personal lives....Maybe we don’t very often have the kind of conversations revealed in this book?

-From the Foreword by
Riess Potterveld, PhD

Donal Godfrey, SJ

A way of reconciliation, so badly needed. . . a way of dialogue that respects different views. . . Speaking as a Roman Catholic priest who also happens to be gay, I certainly feel the need for such safe spaces and find a safe space within the stories which this book provides. . . . This is not only possible but happening.
