Just Love

Author Jayne Ozanne
Publisher DLT £12.99
Format pbk
ISBN 9780232533750

This is a compelling read which takes us through the torment and anguish of being different – the fear that being different will prevent us from being acceptable to God and receiving His love. The powerful narrative takes us from Jayne as a child to the very successful woman she is today. But this is not just Jayne’s story; it is a call for the Church to respond to her passion to serve, when it is apparently weighted against her sexuality. Jayne has therefore become a leading figure in the fight for acceptance of LGBTI people in today’s Church. This book is a must-read for those who are struggling to balance the perception that only heterosexuals can attain God’s love and serve the Church; and for everyone else to understand these heart-rending journeys to serve God.
