From one of the UK's most widely-respected gay evangelicals comes a powerful faith memoir of overcoming inner conflict and taking a stand against one of the greatest institutional injustices of our time.
Just Love is the autobiography of Jayne Ozanne, a prominent gay Anglican, who struggled for over 40 years to reconcile her faith with her sexuality before becoming one of the leading figures that is ushering in a new era of LGBTI acceptance in the Church.
Jayne’s story includes: a faith journey in which she became a founding member of the Church of England’s Archbishops’ Council, working in charities she has set up that has taken her from the White House to the jungles of Burma; studying as a Visiting Research Fellow at Oxford University to working alongside international figures such as Tony Blair and the Vicar of Baghdad; becoming hospitalised as she attempted to find ‘healing’ from her sexuality, and then ostracised by many Christians after she finally decided she had no choice but to come out; becoming a high-profile campaigner for LGBTI acceptance in the Church and helping to lead the revolt in the General Synod that overturned the House of Bishops’ report on same-sex marriage.
Jayne’s story serves as a lifeline for LGBTI Christians struggling to reconcile their faith with their sexuality.
