I can't say enough good things about Gomes. If you want to know the origins of biblical justification for slavery and racism just read. If you want an introduction to silent witness that is never cited by homophobes just read about future King David & Jonathan.

If you want a faith of integrity for the 21st century just read.

This book is cited so often that I had practically read it from afar before I ever read directly. It's great.
