Gene Robinson Discusses "God Believes in Love"
Harvard Book Store and the Episcopal Divinity School are delighted to welcome Gene Robinson, Bishop of the Diocese of New Hampshire in the Episcopal Church, for a discussion of his book God Believes in Love: Straight Talk About Gay Marriage.
From the Harvard Book Store event description:
From the Bishop of the Diocese of New Hampshire in the Episcopal Church, the first openly gay person elected (in 2003) to the historic episcopate and the world's leading religious spokesperson for gay rights and gay marriage—a groundbreaking book that lovingly and persuasively makes the case for same-sex marriage using a commonsense, reasoned, religious argument.
Robinson holds the religious text of the Bible to be holy and sacred and the ensuing two millennia of church history to be relevant to the discussion, and is equally familiar with the secular and political debate going on in America today, and for whom same-sex marriage is a personal issue. Robinson was married to a woman for two decades and is a father of two children and has been married to a man for the last four years of a twenty-three-year relationship.
