Review: Generous Spaciousness: Responding to Gay Christians in the Church


Generous Spaciousness: Responding to Gay Christians in the Church
Generous Spaciousness: Responding to Gay Christians in the Church by Wendy Vanderwal-Gritter

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



I received this book from Brazos Press via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This book offers a non-conventional message about the Christian community acceptance of gay and lesbian Christians. It is an honest conversation on how the church has missed the mark with regards to being God's extended hands towards all our brothers and sisters in Christ. It is also a refreshing outlook on how there are positive changes happening among the Christian community.

To say that we understand fully God's will and plan would be pretentious. You cannot put God in a box to serve your agenda. More and more, the Christian community is getting glimpses of God's true plan for His church. We need to drop our pretenses and listen to what the Holy Spirit has to say; if not, He will not be able to change the misconceptions that are deeply anchored in our imperfect hearts.

Generous Spaciousness is not the all in all solution to this challenge in the Christian community, but it offers sound theology which gives me hope that there can be positive changes.
