An introduction to what scripture has to say about the dignity of LGBTQ people.

In this bible study, Episcopal priest and former teacher Margie Baker shows teens how the bible affirms and supports all of God’s beloved children. Beginning with an exploration of what it means to be made in God’s image and the ways that God is represented with a variety of male and female images and concluding with an examination of how love for all our siblings is central to God’s relationship with humanity, the study encourages youth to see how a thread of inclusion runs through the bible.

Each chapter of God, Gospel, and Gender includes an opening prayer, an activity, opportunities to delve into the biblical text, prompts to respond to the text, and a closing prayer. Designed for use by groups or individuals, this book calls youth to affirm the dignity in every person.
