Is it possible to hold a positive view of same-sex relationships while being a biblically rooted evangelical? These twelve senior Anglican Evangelicals believe so.
Journeys in Grace and Truth sets out the path each contributor has travelled to reach this point, involving moving encounters, scriptural exegesis and personal revelations. It is offered as a contribution to aid the discussion, and to broker deeper understanding between evangelicals and the wider Church.
‘This book invites us to engage prayerfully…listen deeply with hearts of love not fear…and know that God is unchanged whatever our conclusions.’
Rt Revd Rachel Treweek, Bishop of Gloucester
‘My plea in contributing to this book of essays is that there would be an openess amongst Evangelicals to engage biblically with those who hold a range of beliefs without writing them off simply as “revisionists”.’
Rt Revd Colin Fletcher, Bishop of Dorchester
‘Listening closely and carefully to people is in itself a spiritual discipline. Evangelists in particular need to learn it. Too often it seems easier to speak, and if necessary to shout, until people say that they agree. Without careful listening we’re left with raw contention.’
Rt Revd Paul Bayes, Bishop of Liverpool
