The Christian Church has, for too long, used but a handful of verses from the Bible to justify its discrimination of LGBTQ individuals.
In UnClobber: Rethinking Our Misuse of the Bible on Homosexuality, I explore the six "clobber passages" and show how an honest, in-depth, and fresh look at these verses reveal that the church has gotten this one wrong.
I also tell my story of getting fired from a megachurch when they discovered my inclusive theology, and how that led to a life full of more meaning, purpose and love than I could ever imagine.
Praise for UnClobber
"A sincere and welcome memoir for those looking for direction as they navigate the changing tide of LGBTQ acceptance within Christian communities." -Publisher's Weekly
“Funny, smart, and brilliantly paced, Colby has written that book. In his fresh and accessible way, Colby shows what the Bible actually says--clearing up all sorts of confusion along the way.”
“Colby doesn’t play it safe. He dives right into the deep end—into the scary, wonderful, messy truth of a grace free for all.”
“Written with a theologians intelligence and a pastor’s sensitivity, this book is the resource thousands have been waiting for.”
“Colby helps us deconstruct the parts that we often assume were the same line of thinking of sexuality, and faith, as the writers of the Bible, and helps us to rethink one of the most important topics of our time.”
