Product description


Praise for the book

If you read only one book on the history of LGBT rights, the culture, psychotherapy, religious reactions, and what the Bible really says about being gay, Walking the Bridgeless Canyon should be it. It is well-researched, compelling, and eye opening. If this book had existed when I became an anti-gay Christian activist, I would have questioned if what I was doing was truly God's will or if it was nothing more than a man-made construct meant to maintain white heterosexual male dominance on the backs of gay people and women. Kathy Baldock has spent years digging into the nooks and crannies to find the most accurate information available on the struggle LGBT people have endured for the most basic of human rights. This book is destined to be the go-to resource for everyone interested in the truth about LGBT people, our rights, and the rights of all people.

--Yvette Cantu Schneider, former policy analyst at Family Research Council, former director of women's ministry at Exodus International, and author of the book Never Not Broken

Praise for the author

Kathy Baldock is one of the most tireless, dedicated, and influential advocates for LGBT Christians in the evangelical church. Her work has helped to transform the lives of thousands of people, and her ministry is a model of the kind of effective, conciliatory bridge-building work the church desperately needs. In Walking the Bridgeless Canyon, Baldock guides the reader on a fascinating journey of how the church has responded to the LGBT community--and how we all can and should do better. Brilliantly researched, accessibly written, and lovingly expressed, this book is essential reading for anyone wanting to understand the intersection between the conservative church and the LGBT community. I highly recommend it--and its remarkable author.

--Matthew Vines, president of The Reformation Project, author of the book God and the Gay Christian, Random House

Praise for the message

There are those who speak eloquently about spiritual abuses levied against the LGBTQ communities, and others who by their life model a different and holy path. Kathy Baldock is a national leader helping to facilitate honoring discussions with the goal of seeing latent prejudice, anger and ignorance dissipate with each handshake and hug. Far from strident this missive lays out a solid foundation for understanding and bridge building. And this manifesto will liberate many hard hearts and invite people to unclench fists. It is a must read.

----Butch Maltby, domestic and global fundraising consultant, Senior Advisor Newton Media
