Author Bruce Stores has shed light on a hitherto unknown chapter in the annals of Christian Science. This is the story of lesbian/gay believers. Herein is their pursuit for respect and dignity in the Church of Christ, Scientist. The narrative traces stormy encounters from the days of near total rejection up to the friendlier atmosphere in the 21st century. This is a story of perseverance, hope, and especially healing.

"Ultimately, Stores’ narrative coalesces into a fair-minded look at the evolution of Christian Science’s stance on gay rights, the responses of its leadership and followers, and the hope for change. A meticulously researched educational tool, particularly for readers with a casual interest in Christian Science and LGBT issues." — Kirkus Review

"Bruce Stores has done a superb job of pulling this story together, ferreting out little known aspects of it and placing it all in the context of America's unfolding political and religious life. What comes through. . . is that in spite of all the homophobia, church politics, hopes dashed and partially re-assembled, Christian Science still blazes bright for those who want it." — White Crane Journal
