Uncommon Calling: A Gay Christian's Struggle to Serve the Church
Westminster John Knox, 1988
Softcover, 260 pp.
In this book, Chris Glaser describes his personal journey of coming out to his family, friends, church--and to himself. He tells the story of how the church reacted to his disclosure and his subsequent "uncommon" calling that led him to devote his professional life to reconciliation between the lesbian, gay, and bisexual community and the church. By openly and honestly telling his story, Glaser furthers his calling--demonstrating that lesbians, gay men, and bisexuals are not abstractions, but real people struggling to remain faithful.
