Meditations addressing the spiritual needs of queer Christians.

A new look at ten selected parables of Jesus, that expands the scope of interpretation  of each story to highlight God's extravagant welcome of all people. The perspective in the reflections is deeply personal and written to be used by both individuals and groups. Queer affirming churches, seminaries, and retreat centers will benefit from this resource as they continue to champion the flourishing of their queer siblings in Christ.

Dr. Rolf R. Nolasco, Jr. is Rueben P. Job Professor of Spiritual Formation and Pastoral Theology at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary in Evanston, Il USA. As a queer person of color, Rolf works at the intersection of critical and liberative psychology, theology, spirituality, and affective neuroscience in addressing the complexity of the human condition and the potential for human flourishing of all persons and communities. He is the author of The Contemplative Counselor: A Way of Being, Compassionate Presence: A Radical Response to Human Sufferings, and God’s Beloved Queer. He lives in Evanston, Illinois.
