I have not yet finished this, but I was expecting something different. I was expecting it to cover the most commonly discussed GLBT-related Biblical topics such the misuse of condemning passages, the homoeroticism in David and Jonathan's relationship, and other implications of homosexuality throughout the Bible. Yet upon reading it, I was immersed in verbose, complicated analysis that came to conclusions that seemed like a stretch. Still an interesting read that made some valid points.
