Outing the Bible: Queer Folks, God, Jesus, and the Christian Scriptures Paperback. I honestly felt the world would be better had the Bible never existed.

Outing the Bible: Queer Folks, God, Jesus, and the Christian Scriptures Paperback. Rev. Dr. Nancy Wilson. I had allowed the haters and hypocrites to hijack, not only the Bible, but my own experience of it. Nancy's "Our Tribe" allowed me to look again at the Bible with fresh eyes. She reminded me of the beauty and truth found in its pages. And specifically, she shows what I know already to be true: that LGBT people were there in every scene of the Bible, just like they are in every nation and congregation today.

Sometimes wisecracking and always spellbinding, Rev. Nancy Wilson spins tales from her life in the trenches as senior pastor of the Metropolitan Community Church of Los Angeles. On a mission to radicalize the mainstream church, she passionately proclaims a "queer theology" that can lead all Christians-gay, lesbian, and straight-into the next millennium.

After the first or second performance, a young heterosexual couple came up to me shyly, saying how much they loved the play, especially the part about Ruth and Naomi - which I had explained in the talk-back with the audience afterward. Yet, how can it be wrong for two women to make these vows when we have the biblical example of Ruth and Naomi doing exactly that?

Despite having studied Biblical Archeology, and ministering for 20 years in the Catholic Church, I had come to see the Bible as a tool of ignorance and violence. I honestly felt the world would be better had the Bible never existed.

I had allowed the haters and hypocrites to hijack, not only the Bible, but my own experience of it.

Nancy's "Our Tribe" allowed me to look again at the Bible with fresh eyes. She reminded me of the beauty and truth found in its pages. And specifically, she shows what I know already to be true: that LGBT people were there in every scene of the Bible, just like they are in every nation and congregation today.

This is not a revisionist look at the text, but is based in scholarship. We know many things about the cultures of the Bible from independent resources. And often the Bible itself reveals truth ignored by others with an agenda.

There is a reason that fundamentalists cherry pick verses; because the TRUTH is in a more serious, and honest, contextual reading.

If you want to take the Bible seriously, and discover the power and beauty within, I highly recommend "Our Tribe"

The Rev. Elder Nancy Wilson's very readable and engaging presentation is inspiring and gives the reader a glimpse into the heart of a lesbian and clearly Christian pastor. The book radiates the warmth of God's love and challenges the reader to a deeper commitment to discipleship. It would have been even better and would have received 5 stars had the publisher retained more of the material from the original work. Why did they drop so much out? A great book to read and give as gifts to friends and family who simply don't get what it means to be gay and Christian or who are looking for a way to deepen their Christian walk.

I like the way Nancy writes. Personable, knowledgeable and at times, funny, as well! Would certainly recommend this book to those wanting to broaden their understanding of the scriptures from a new perspective.

Great!

I haven't a clue about the context of this book as it was a gift that someone requested for Christmas.

I purchased "Our Tribe" during a time of spiritual searching. Feeling alienated intellectually, and as a woman, from the church of my youth I hoped I might find similarities between mine and gay experience. Reverend Wilson writes in a bravely honest, deliberate, thoughtful, and challenging way. I was heartened at many points in the book, and laughed with relief at many of her insights.
Reverend Wilson proves that "thinking" and "Christian" are not opposing terms. And in her thoughtfulness she draws forth the warmth of Spirit that is available to all God's children.
"Our Tribe" is the "Febreeze" of religion, removing the nasty must and mold, while letting in fresh air and light.

Wow, what an experience. This book doesn't try to apologise for being gay or lesbian friendly, affirming and encouraging. The author gently relates a history of a people totally focussed on loving God but who must continually demonstrate their resilience and love for a church which does not accept homosexuality or transgendered people. It is unlikely that anyone will instantly agree with each tenet of the author but Rev Wilson does take an orderly, sensitive approach to helping us see historical perspectives which have often been misread or mistranslated and so have lead to incredibly severe persecution of sexual minorities. Rev Wilson then goes on to stretch our views of what a truly inclusive church could look like. I was challenged, sometimes unable to hold the book or think about what I was told and sometimes unable to put it down. A great primer for people new to the gay/lesbian scene or caring people who want to understand more.
Rev. Elder Nancy Wilson's ground-breaking book is a must read for GLBT spiritulists.
