Sexual Divide: A Journey of Hope to Bridge the Chasm
AuthorHouse, 2005 M02 15 - 188 pages
No problem provokes as strong a controversy in the mainline churches as that of homosexuality. Instead of lining up essayists to debate the issues, the author sorts out the perspectives in a story format portraying a variety of characters.
The action occurs within a fictional Concordia Lutheran Church-USA, which could just as well be any Protestant, Anglican or even Catholic Church. The author uses insights from the Bible, tradition, science and ethnic perspectives, weaving them together through characters who thrust the novel to an unexpected turning point.
While not minimizing the serious divide among Christians and the potential for schism, SEXUAL DIVIDE does not leave the reader in frustration but points the way toward a hope to bridge the chasm.
