Reviews/Comments

Anne Brooke writes: “A powerful and prophetic message of justice and relevance for LGBTQ people, with a very timely warning to the church for its ungodly attitude towards equal marriage issues. I highly recommend it. In fact, everyone should read this.”

Dr Wilson’s book deals thoroughly and fairly with the biblical, theological and pastoral issues in the debate over equal marriage in the Church of England. It should be required reading for everyone involved in these discussions, on both sides.
