Andrew Marin's Love is an Orientation … Elevating the Conversation with the Gay Community (IVP, 2009) deals with intelligently, humanly and biblically with the gay community like no writer on this issue I've ever read before. It's a bold read.
When three of Marin's best friends came out to him, the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) community suddenly was up close and personal, and reconciling his friends' decisions to his faith became the work of Marin's life.
Marin and his wife live in Boystown, a predominantly GLBT neighborhood in Chicago. Marin began and directs The Marin Foundation, which is conducting the largest-ever research study on religion in the gay community.
Marin is a listener and a learner with a huge heart. It's a beautifully written book that centers on Marin's deep love for the Gay community.
