This book refutes the idea that the Bible is homophobic and makes visible the gay lives and validated homoerotic experience to be found in it.

The Gay Gospels constitutes a forthright challenge to the institutionalised homophobia of mainstream Christian churches. It reveals the bigotry behind the church’s refusal to affirm and celebrate gay lives, identities and relationships. In so doing it gives LGBT people a powerful tool for asserting the right to full inclusion and equal treatment in all Christian congregations.

Reviews/Comments

“Keith’s book, which is in two parts, is designed to provide LGBT+ people with self-defence resources and self-affirmative resources and I recommended it to someone only this summer who was feeling bruised by the Shared Conversations and looking for precisely this kind of resourcing.” — Tina Beardsley

“Everybody involved in the debate over the place of gay people in the Church and in society generally should read this book. It is a faith- and life-affirming book for the LGBT community, it is a terrific read and I recommend it wholeheartedly.” — Ben Bradshaw MP
