A New (Expanded) Edition of UnClobber!
My publisher released a brand new edition of UnClobber, featuring an extra chapter, Small Group Study Guide, and a Preaching Series guide!
Today is a special day for me, and I wanted to share it with you.
Just over five years ago my first book, UnClobber, was published by Westminster John Knox. Since then it has gone on to sell something like 25k copies—which is bonkers, if you ask me!
But even bonkier?
That it sells more copies with each passing year. 😱
Meaning, the question about whether or not the Bible provides justification to discriminate against or oppress LGBTQ people has not gone away (yet).
Loads of people continue to open up Google and search:
"Is homosexuality a sin?"
"What does the Bible say about homosexuality?"
"Can I be gay and Christian?"
In response to this growing demand, the publisher decided to create a second (and expanded!) edition.
So What's Different About this Edition?
The Second Edition features:
A New Chapter!
I wrote an Afterword in which I look back on the last five years since the book came out, covering topics such as:
Using more inclusive language (in the original edition I always said "sons and daughters of God," or, "brothers and sisters." I've learned some things since then! So this edition updates to say, "Children of God," and, "siblings").
The fact that I'm a straight guy who wrote this book... how that can be both problematic and beneficial.
The surprising reality that people can... and do... change their mind on this topic!
A Small Group Study Guide
Lots of people go through UnClobber together with others. Friends, family, small group, etc.
So this time around the folks at WJK wrote up custom, poignant questions to guide readers through the material covered in each chapter.
What an amazing resource, right?!
A Sermon Series Guide
Finally, for the teachers and preachers among you, the publisher created an outline for how you might use UnClobber to create and deliver a preaching series at your church/school. Obviously, you can make it your own and add your flavors to it, but this is a fantastic starting point!
