Cover Commentary:

Love Lifted Me: In Spite Of The Church is an inspirational read of an openly gay man’s triumphant journey through the guilt, shame and condemnation brought on by his Christian upbringing. It chronicles events from his youth and throughout his young adulthood, describing a vivid, moving, and sometimes comical portrait of how seemingly insurmountable social and spiritual challenges guided him to his first  Damascus Road. “Within my own private valley of the shadow of death," is where his deeply rooted yet abandoned faith in the unconditionally loving God of All was forever restored, and his unique, human orientation eternally validated by God.

The author writes, “But be not dismayed. We’ll eventually reach the other side of the Pharisaic Christian’s hell, where a smoother ride exists.” Elsewhere he says, “As the proud, single parent of a sixteen-year-old son, how could I not be the proper example and openly declare my social validity and spiritual liberty in Christ."

More than any other published book today on gay Christianity as it relates to the African-American religious community, Easter exposes the ambiguity lodged deep within the root of organized religion, as he’s experienced it. With this literary rendering, he describes how his faith in God brought him over.

“If Christ has set me free, why should I be bound, especially by my Christian church?” he boldly declares.
