Jack Rogers' Second Edition Now Out!

I was pleased to receive in the mail today an autographed copy of Dr. Jack Rogers' expanded and updated second edition
Jesus, The Bible and Homosexuality: Explode the Myths, Heal the Church.

You can order it now at Amazon.

Jack writes:

The revised and expanded edition includes all of the material from the first edition plus:
  • A new preface with "stories from the road" as a result of my two-year book tour in support of the first edition;
  • Updates on recent developments within the Presbyterian Church ( U.S.A.);
  • A new chapter that examines God's radical welcome for all who have faith as revealed in Scripture;
  • A new appendix that maps the recent progress toward lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender equality in major U.S. denominations; and
  • A study guide for group or personal reflection.
I hope the new edition will make a helpful contribution to the conversation about equal rights in church and society for people who are LGBT.

I look forward to reading and commenting on it.

Pick up a few copies and place them in Easter baskets.
