Praise for the Print Edition
In the church and even outside of it, few subjects stir controversy—and tempers—more quickly than the church's response to homosexuality. In Pastoral Care of Gays, Lesbians, and Their Families, David Switzer recognized the sensitivity of the homosexuality issue in the church. . . . [The book] will challenge readers to examine their ministry to gays and lesbians in the congregations and enhance their ministry to them.
