Another Unreal Review

Don’t know how I missed this one either! Guess life goes on when you’re in another country… :)

I’m blessed to have read this. The conversation over there is poppin’! Rachel Held Evans wrote this review. I have never met her, but I continue to hear great things about her upcoming book. Holla!

Much love.

    I loved your book, Andrew. And I appreciate how it generated one of the most constructive conversations we’ve ever had on the blog. (Usually when you see 100 + comments, it’s an indication that the conversation has gone South. Not in this case!) I also received quite a few emails from people who were touched by “Love is an Orientation” or by the dialog it inspired on the blog. Thanks for the work that you do.

    No, seriously, thank you. Much love!!!! :)

    Hi Andrew,

    I heard you speak recently at some youth stuff in the UK, I haven’t read your book but I found you a very interesting speaker with a compassionate heart full of love for a community that have only felt hate from the body of Christ.

    I’ve read through all your blogs but I can’t find the answer I’m looking for. I wonder if you’d take the time to answer one question for me?
    Are you saying it’s ok to be Gay and be a God loving Christian and God is fine with it or are you saying as Christian’s we are to love the Gay community (build a bridge) but shouldn’t be a practicing gay ourselves? I don’t understand…….
    This would really help me with some personal issues and struggles in my own personal theology about how I’m feeling…….
    Deb :)
