Here are some books I’ve read this year that I would recommend.  I don’t believe in refusing to read material that I disagree with, so I won’t distinguish between the books that promote gay-affirming theology and the ones that don’t.  Many have nothing to do with sexuality at all, and some aren’t even Christian.  It’s ok, you’re in a safe place.  Trust God enough to read a wide variety of material from a wide variety of perspectives and purposes.
