UnClobber: Rethinking our Misuse of the Bible on Homosexuality
Expanded Edition with Study Guide
Westminster John Knox, 2022
Softcover, 224 pp.
Armed with only six passages in the Bible--often known as the "Clobber Passages"--the conservative Christian position has been one that stands against the full inclusion of our LGBTQ siblings. UnClobber reexamines each of those frequently quoted passages of Scripture, alternating with author Colby Martin's own story of being fired from an evangelical megachurch when they discovered his stance on sexuality.
UnClobber reexamines what the Bible says (and does not say) about homosexuality in such a way that sheds divine light on outdated and inaccurate assumptions and interpretations. This new edition equips study groups and congregations with questions for discussion and a sermon series guide for preachers.
