Book Club


As my books coverage has been expanding, I have been revising the organisation of these pages.  Rather than trying to organise simply in terms of my personal preferences, I am now attempting to provide more comprehensive listings, with indications from reviews or other sources as a guide to usefulness for the titles I am not personally familiar with.  For ease of access and handling, I have thus subdivided the complete list into thematic subdivisions.  I am also attempting to build up dedicated pages and sections for the authors and books that I have found the most useful of all.

This is very much a work in progress, but there is no reason why it should not be acccessible even during construction. It is also more than likely that some title are not yet in the correct subdivisions.  If anybody would like to comment or add anything to my listings, I would love to hear from you.

The subdivisions at present are:

LGBT, Sexuality in Church History – books which  investigate the history (ancient and modern) of responses by the church to sexuality or LGBT relationships.

LGBT Spirituality & Scripture – grouped  for now in one section are books on spirituality fro an LGBT perspective, LGBT supportive themes from Scripture, and on anlyses of the infamous “Clobber Texts.”

Lesbian & Gay Theology, Queer Theology

Sexual Ethics

Biography & Memoir (LGBT, Faith-Based)

LGBT Pastoral Care (including response to HIV/AIDS)

Fiction & Poetry  (LGBT, Faith-Based)

Other Gay &  Lesbian History, Queer Studies

Other books on faith and religion  (not LGBT based)

Pages in preparation for specific authors are:

James Alison

John Boswell

Richard Cleaver: Know My Name

Daniel Helminiak

John McNeill

More will be added.

My original page on my personal favourites still exists, but has been moved to here:

    I saw this book in a bookstore today and thought of this blog. It’s called “Sanctified: An Anthology of Poetry by LGBT Christians,” edited by Justin R. Cannon.
