Summary: For many Christians, ''homosexuality'' is an issue. It is often considered a matter of ''us'' versus ''them,'' or worse, a question of ''behavior,'' not something intrinsic to a person's identity. ''Coming Out in Christianity examines this identity conflict from the point of view of some lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Christians. It focuses on current and former members of two Metropolitan Community Churches in California that serve predominantly LGBT Christians. Based on or
