'We each have unique gift – our individual testimony of what God has done in our lives, and how we have come to know and accept His amazing love. No one can ever take this away from us, although some do try to silence us. That’s why this book is so important. It is a powerful witness of the love of God in action, and beautifully tells how each individual came to the full realization that they are passionately loved by a God who created them to love and be loved.'

Jane Ozanne, Writer, Broadcaster and LGBT Campaigner

'The stories of witness which Christians have told, but which have not been heard, typify much of Christian history. The sad but powerful words of witness in this book are a sign of the Gospel which allows LGBT + voices to be heard. They offer an urgent message which needs to be heeded by Christians in this and every generation.'

Christopher Rowland, Dean Ireland’s Professor of the Exegesis of Holy Scripture Emeritus, University of Oxford

'This is a tremendous collection of deeply moving stories. Some of them are heart-rending, some wonderfully positive, some both. I hope before long such a book will be neither needed nor possible.'

Revd Professor Michael J Reiss, UCL Institute of Education, University College London

‘I have met thousands of LGBT+ Christians around the world, and have witnessed the work of the Holy Spirit moving through them in the most profound ways. I have been blown away by how many Christian leaders have reached out to tell me that they too have felt the Spirit of God nudging them to step forward and embrace LGBT+ people as faithful members of Christ’s Church. I have watched as societies around the world have stepped closer and closer to affirming and embracing LGBT+ people as equal and essential parts of their communities. And I have seen true revival breaking forth in the midst of LGBT+ Christian communities.’

In Our Witness, Brandan Robertson has collected the powerful testimonies and experiences of LGBT+ Christians living in active and influential faith today. Some have faced rejection and marginalisation from parts of the Church; some have found fulfilment and blessing through reconciliation of their faith and their sexuality within the Church; and some bear witness to the great and fruitful revival that the Holy Spirit is bringing about through the lives of the LGBT+ Christian community.

These are stories of faith, hope, love and life, and testimony to a wonderful new work of God in our world today.

This unique DLT edition includes a number of stories of LGBT+ Christians from the UK and Ireland.
