Homosexuality and Christian Faith: Questions of Conscience for the Churches, edited by Walter Wink
Though gays and lesbians have a role in the debate over securing justice for themselves in the church, most of those engaged in the struggle are heterosexual. The fullest burden for achieving change falls on progressive and moderate straights and their ability to convince fair-minded conservatives to accept gay people. Walter Wink has edited a collection of 16 wide-ranging essays that make a significant contribution to that enterprise. Though it might seem incongruous that none of the writers clearly is gay or lesbian, Wink's goal is to encourage straights to deal frankly with typical heterosexual assumptions.
