Times of Transition

Publisher Description

Join with Pete, the lead-pastor, Joe, his son, transitioning to be Jo, his daughter and Jack, the popular youth leader who creates a scandal when he leads his youth club to split off from the parent church. These and other engaging characters grapple with crippling doubts, courageously standing up against appalling sexism, transphobia and outspoken anti-LGBTQ+ feelings in the days when gays and lesbians were only just beginning to struggle in solidarity against Mrs Thatcher's 'section 28'. 

Behind all of this lay a poisonous, fundamentalist culture produced by a fierce commitment to biblical literalism and inerrancy, enforced by an authoritarian, hierarchical church structure. These troubling concerns, still with us today, are dealt with in a respectful, gracious manner, intended to encourage irenic discussion. We see many of the characters emerging towards a fresh expression of their faith into what we know today as Progressive Christianity.

Join this remarkable journey of self-discovery, as the characters grapple with their beliefs, confront toxic church culture, and embark on a path towards healing and inclusivity.
