LGBT Christian Resources

We've often been asked if there are books for or about lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgendered Christians. Happily, we can always reply, "Yes!" In fact, there are many books. The topics of these books range from spiritual devotionals to hopeful stories to biblical interpretation to theological research.
