Quest is delighted to see the publication and release today of ‘The Book of Queer Prophets’ (by Harper Collins) #queerprophets.
“THE BOOK OF QUEER PROPHETS’ challenges the idea that sexuality and faith are incompatible and highlights the stories of people who are excluded by faith communities that preach about love but fail to assist the LGBTQI community. Within its pages, you will read the experience of believers, doubters, atheists and diagnostics … We believe that the people included in this book are modern-day prophets, who have an urgent message that needs to be heard and acted upon.”
As LGBT+ people of Faith we live in such pivotal times. We need strong voices to inform our journeys, to illuminate the sometimes-darkened path and to support our spiritual growth. This book does all of that and more.
(G Swan, Chair of Quest)
Curated by Ruth Hunt, this amazing book brings together contributions from 21 different writers many of whom you will recognise: Ruth herself and Padraig Ó Tuama, both speakers at previous Quest Conferences; Dustin Lance Black, Jeanette Winterson, Amroul Al-Kadhi and more. The introduction itself justifies the purchase. The contents are a rich feast to be savoured slowly despite the temptation to gorge on them all at once.
