A dramatic account of the tumultuous decade-long struggle in the United Church of Canada to balance faith, sexuality and human rights. Drawing on the church's history, and more than one hundred personal encounters across the country, the book reveals an enormous range of passionate opinion, from fundamentalist to progressive. It documents not only deep tensions that threatened to dis-unite the United Church, but also its remarkable resilience as an enduring network of faith communities.
