    book excerpt

    Author's Note:

    LOVE LIFTED ME: IN SPITE OF THE CHURCH offers a wealth of insight to Christian pastors, teachers, ministers and spiritual activists who outreach to Same-Gender-Attracted individuals or attempt to address the highly controversial topic of homosexuality publicly. However, Godfrey states of his first work,”The person who authored this book was convinced that being gay is no sin, to the extent that he would have happily given his life in defense of gay-Christian validity. Thanks to Wisdom, I am no longer that person.”



    Book Cover Commentary:
    LOVE LIFTED ME: IN SPITE Of The CHURCH, written by K. Godfrey Easter, is an inspirational read of an openly gay man’s triumphant journey through the guilt, shame, and condemnation brought on by his Christian upbringing. It chronicles events from his youth and throughout his young adulthood describing a vivid, moving, and sometimes comical portrait of how seemingly insurmountable social and spiritual challenges guided him to his own Damascus Road.

    “Within my own private valley of the shadow of death” is where his deeply rooted, yet abandoned faith in the unconditional loving God of All was forever restored, and his unique, human orientation eternally validated by God.The author writes:

    “But be not dismayed. We’ll eventually reach the other side of the pharisaical Christian’s hell, where a smoother ride exists.” Easter exposes the ambiguity lodged deep within the roots of organized religion, as he’s experienced it. With this literary rendering he describes how his faith in God brought him over. “If Christ has set me free, why should I be bound, especially by my Christian church?” he boldly declares.
