HUBBLE, C : Lord Given Lovers

The Holy Union of David & Johnathan
iUniverse 2003

112 pages

gay male, lesbian and gay scripture readings

"The Holy Union of David and Jonathan is a provocative biblical story of passion and political intrigue. LGBT readers will discover a story that will help them find self-acceptance and constructively challenge the prejudice of religious homophobes. David and Jonathan formed a magnificent and beautiful partnership that they apparently intended to last for a lifetime. Theirs was a loving and committed relationship.

The failure of our culture to recognize the intrinsic divinity of homosexuality and the sanctity of our relationships is the central dilemma challenging lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered people. Our society's civil morality is informed by the religious mores of our culture. A redefined cultural and societal understanding of same-sex love derived from and supported by the Bible--a widespread knowledge of the holy union of David and Jonathan--will have a profound impact on the long-term success of our justice movement.
