CHRISTIAN SCIENCE: Its Encounter With Lesbian/Gay America: Its Encounter with Lesbian/Gay America (Google eBook)
Author Bruce Stores has shed light on a hitherto unknown chapter in the annals of Christian Science. This is the story of lesbian/gay believers. Herein is their pursuit for respect and dignity in the Church of Christ, Scientist. The narrative traces stormy encounters from the days of near total rejection up to the friendlier atmosphere in the 21st century. Some events in this real life story are shameful while others are praiseworthy. This is a story of perseverance, hope, and especially healing. Anyone who values the triumph of right over wrong, and truth over error, will find this narrative both compelling and informative.
