Messy Grace : How a Pastor with Gay Parents Learned to Love Others Without Sacrificing Conviction Paperback / softback
A pastor with an unforgettable inside story shows evangelicals how to nurture healthy, respectful, and biblically informed relationships with people in the LGBT community.
When Caleb Kaltenbach was a toddler, his parents divorced and independently pursued homosexual lifestyles.
As a result, Caleb was lovingly raised in the LGBT community, attending lesbian parties with his mother and her partner, marching in gay parades...and experiencing hatred and bitterness by Christians.
To his enduring surprise, Caleb became a Christian and a pastor as a young adult.
Messy Grace invites readers into what may be the most urgent and difficult conversation evangelicals face today: "How can we relate to the gays, lesbians, and transgendered among us in a way that honors differences and demonstrates Christ's love while adhering to what we believe Scripture requires?" Through revealing personal story, biblical teaching, and practical solutions, Caleb's non-judgmental voice and life-tested counsel will appeal to a broad psychographic of evangelicals who understand that despite the good intentions of most on this issue, some Christians have done great harm and we desperately need constructive answers.
