This Far by Grace: A Bishop's Journey Through Questions of Homosexuality (Paperback)
In this thoughtful and timely book, Bishop Alexander explores his journey through the theological, scriptural, and pastoral aspects of the questions surrounding homosexuality and the Christian faith. Writing in the weeks after the General Convention of the Episcopal Church approved the appointment of the church's first openly gay bishop, Bishop Alexander offers a personal view of his changing outlook--from exclusion to acceptance--on this important issue. He also offers thought-provoking perspectives on scripture and tradition. This Far by Grace will prove a vital resource for discussion and reflection by individuals, parishes, and dioceses.
J. NEIL ALEXANDER is the bishop of Atlanta. He has taught at the University of the South School of Theology, and General Theological Seminary in New York City. Originally ordained a Lutheran pastor, he has served parishes in Murray Hill, New Jersey, Cowan, Tennessee, and New York City.
