"Cheng takes us through a systematic re-working of the classical doctrines of sin and grace, and lands us in a place where, surprisingly, these ideas can once again sing with life for Christian LGBTQ persons.  It's a serious and splendid book." --Serene Jones, President and Roosevelt Professor of Systematic Theology, Union Theological Seminary in New York City"This gifted theologian and teacher offers an accessible and compelling case for why LGBT persons (and others) need to take back the words 'sin' and 'grace.'  Be forewarned: reading Cheng is likely to stretch your theological and moral imagination, but all for the good." --Marvin M. Ellison, Willard S. Bass Professor of Christian Ethics, Bangor Theological Seminary; author of Making Love Just and co-editor of Sexuality and the Sacred, 2nd edition"Patrick Cheng has given the Christian church and the theological academy a precious gift.  Cheng's work ranks among the best scholarship of a new generation of theologians.  I have experienced more amazing grace--and grown more mature theologically--because of this book." --Tat-siong Benny Liew, Vice President of Academic Affairs and Dean, and Professor of New Testament, Pacific School of Religion"Cheng provides our hurting community with a healing theology; an accessible christology which celebrates an open and affirming Christianity desperately needed by most of our churches.  This book is good news for all who are queer, as well as for those who are not!" --Miguel A. De La Torre, Professor of Social Ethics and Latino/a Studies, Iliff School of Theology; 2012 President of the Society of Christian Ethics"'Christ is the treasure hidden in the scriptures,' wrote Irenaeus, the second century theologian.  Christ is the treasure, and Cheng's work is a treasure map of LGBT advances in theology that helps us find, once again, that God loves all of us and wants us to be free." --Susan Brooks Thistlethwaite, Professor of Theology and former president, Chicago Theological Seminary; blogger for the Washington Post; author of Lift Every Voice"Patrick Cheng has produced a much needed pastoral book for LGBTIQ and, in fact, all Christians.  This is a remarkable theological and pastoral exploration that can help individual Christians and their congregations to re-align their spiritual development." --Robert E. Shore-Goss, Senior Pastor/Theologian, MCC in the Valley, North Hollywood; author of Jesus Acted Up and Queering Christ"The act of reading Patrick Cheng's Christ-centered theology of sin and grace offers both healing pastoral care and political empowerment.  Christians who have been wounded, alienated, or simply befuddled by the ongoing use of Christianity to further heterosexist hate and disenfranchisement have been waiting for this book." --Traci C. West, Professor of Ethics and African American Studies, Drew University Theological School; author of Disruptive Christian Ethics
