Nicknamed “God Boy” for his passionate evangelical faith, Justin Lee was outspoken against gay acceptance. But when questions about his own sexuality emerged, Lee discovered that neither he nor his Christian friends and heroes knew how to respond.
Torn is the story of Lee’s 15-year journey to understand both sides of the gay debate—from bullied teens to ministry leader scandals, from churches to gay bars—and, ultimately, to find a way to bring us back together. In it, he chronicles the discoveries that shocked him, the stories that broke his heart, and the lessons he learned about what the church is doing wrong and how we can make it right.
Torn has been praised by gays and Christians, conservatives and liberals, for tackling some of the most divisive questions of our generation and offering both sides an honest, realistic, and compassionate way forward. Published by Jericho Books, Torn is the book for anyone who wants to heal our cultural rift.
