In Their Own Receive Them Not, Griffin provides a historical overview and critical analysis of the black church and its current engagement with lesbian and gay Christians, and shares ways in which black churches can learn to reach out and confront all types of oppression – not just race – in order to do the work of the black community.


Their Own Receive Them Not cuts through the Gordian Knot of homophobia in the Black Church with compelling, substantive arguments. This groundbreaking work has the potential to move hearts and minds toward the more loving and inclusive community for which we have been praying.’ — Sylvia Rhue
