From Wounded Hearts
Edited by Roberta Showalter Kreider
285 pages

Faith stories of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered people and those who love them.

In the beginning, Roberta Kreider did not know much about homosexuality except that she had always been certain that it was a bad thing – a sin. Her journey from that place to being the editor of this book is the old, old story of what God can do with a life surrendered to God’s will and purpose.”
– From the Forward by Peggy Campolo

Over 50 people of faith have written their very personal stories, including lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people and their non-gay family members and friends.

It is easy to judge and condemn someone whom we do not know. It is especially easy to judge a group of people whom we think do not measure up to our interpretation of what the Bible says; however, when we take time to learn to know gay people as individuals, our perception of them changes. This is why it is important to tell our faith stories to one another. As the issue of homosexuality is debated in our churches, we seldom ask the people we are calling sinners to tell us about their own personal experience of relationship with God. My own life and attitude has been profoundly changed by listening to the stories of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people and their families.

From the Introduction by Roberta Showalter

This is Roberta Kreider’s first of three books in the Series of Faith Stories from the GLBTA Community of Faith.
