   schema:description "Homosexuality is the most divisive issue facing churches today. Like slavery 150 years ago, it is a matter that ignites passionate convictions on both sides, a matter that threatens to turn members of the same faith against each other, to divide congregations, and possibly even to fragment denominations. Like slavery, it is an issue that calls up basic questions about what it means to be a Christian. How does one know right from wrong? Do good Christians always follow their church's teachings, or are they allowed to think for themselves? While many books have been written analyzing the scriptural and theological dimensions of the conflict, this is the first to show how it is being played out in the pews. Journalist Keith Hartman examines nine churches that were split by disagreements over gay and lesbian issues, and how the congregations resolved them. He shows some irrevocably split, while others come through their struggles stronger and more unified. --From publisher description."@en ;
