In 1999, Rabbi Steven Greenberg became the first Orthodox rabbi to openly declare his homosexuality. This book is the result of his ten-year struggle to reconcile his two warring identities. Using traditional rabbinic resources, he presents readers with surprising biblical interpretations, going beyond the question of whether homosexuality is biblically acceptable, to ask how such relationships can be sacred.

Review:

[Greenberg] effectively portrays the plight of closeted and openly gay Orthodox Jews who struggle daily with their sexual desires and with the knowledge that the Torah and the rabbis forbid homosexuality. - Publishers Weekly ""As useful for Christians as it is for Jews.... I heartily recommend this book to Christians who wish to take their Hebrew scriptures seriously and who are willing to examine their own responses to this raging debate."" - the Right Reverend V. Gene Robinson, Episcopal Bishop of New Hampshire

About the Author:
