    • (Note: "This is the revised and updated edition of Shore’s book, UNFAIR: Why the ‘Christian’ View of Gays Doesn’t Work." x)In reference to this review, this is definitely a book I want to give to my parents. (Or my mother, rather.) Though I also bought this for myself because I've enjoyed what I've read of John Shore's blog. I like that this book touches briefly on theology and is mostly focused on a more personal aspect. Most of the book was letters from LGBT Christians. (Actually trans [...]


    • This book not only saved my faith but it helped me to become more comfortable in my skin. I was a conservative Christian and coming out of the closet was one of the hardest things I ever did. I will always be thankful for this book. I highly recommend it for straight Christians, pastors, etc as it gives not only a logical argument for the support of LGBT in our community but the book also has printed numerous heart-felt letters from LGBT brothers and sisters. I've read this book twice now and wa [...]


    • I was really looking forward to reading this book, liking it, and giving it a big pretty glowing 5 star review. Last I checked there weren't many reviews, and I was hoping that my 5-stars would help persuade people to read it, since it covers such an important topic, and I like what I've read of John Shore's stuff when friends post it on Facebook. Unfortunately, it falls a bit flat, at least for me. I was hoping for a pretty detailed analysis of what the Clobber Passages were and why they're bun [...]


    • This was a great read. I don't know how anyone could read this and still persecute someone for being gay. I would hope that Christians who are "so sure" that the bible condemns gays directly to hell would read this. Most of them probably won't. But even for Christians that are questioning or who just want another look, this book is wonderful. Highly recommended.


    • Whatever you believe about God, religion and the Bible, a person's story can move you. Shore asked for stories from gay people on his blog and this book is the result. It begins with a brief defense of same-sex relationships before being filled with a couple dozen stories of gay people and their experiences in the church. Sadly, these are stories filled with rejection, anger, hatred and fear. At the same time, these stories are moving as despite such awful experiences, these people still cling t [...]


    • It reads like seeing a train wreck. One is moved by these letters of gay Christians who suffer rejection and despair as they seek and hope for the fellowship within their churches. I'm the least likely person to have read this--not moved to religion at all--but found the essays by John Shore, who seeks to counter the religious right's arguments against homosexuals, to be well directed and think they may be helpful to those who are questioning and seeking their place as Christians.


    • This was a difficult read. These letters broke my heart open again and again, but the overall message was one of hope and closure and above all else, faith. Shore presents his refreshingly logical interpretation of those (endlessly cited) biblical verses dealing with homosexuality in such a rational, readable, and often humorous way that I can't help but be thrilled he's on our side.


    • This book brings to life the stories of actual people and their relationship with the Divine. Hearing the stories of people in the LGBT community helped me begin to reshape the way I understood the issue.
