Jeff Chu's DOES JESUS REALLY LOVE ME? Featured in the NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

Does Jesus Really Love Me? By Jeff ChuA wonderful review of Jeff Chu's Does Jesus Really Love Me?: A Gay Christian’s Pilgrimage in Search of God in America was featured on the cover of the New York Times Book Review this Sunday, written by Dan Savage.

Jeff Chu, a gay man who was raised a Baptist, has always grappled with one question: Does Jesus really love me, sexuality and all? He set out across America, consulting everyone from the ultra-conservative, vehemently anti-gay Westboro Baptist Church to uber-liberal Episcopal bishop Mary Glasspool, proclaimer of divine love and liberation. His journey exposes the infinitely divided and increasingly combative branches of Christian America, a faith and a nation at odds.

Chu’s insightful book is essential for any classroom debate on contemporary religion and politics. In his review, Savage raves, “Chu has written a fascinating, thoughtful and important book. He captures the fractures and conflict at a moment when the issue of what to do with L.G.B.T. people is tearing Christian denominations apart. Does Jesus Really Love Me? deserves to be widely read.”
