Beschreibung

A sharecropper's son, Gene Robinson rose to become an Episcopal priest & later, the first openly gay bishop in the Anglican Church. His election set off a worldwide firestorm of reaction, both positive and negative. Based on extensive interviews with Bishop Robinson and the people around him, "Going to Heaven" paints a portrait of the man who is, as he puts it, "neither the angel nor the devil some would make me out to be." The book illuminates his early life; his struggle with his sexual orientation; his calling into the church; and finally, the tumultuous events surrounding his election and consecration. Gene Robinson's life is a compelling story of challenges overcome by hard work, humor, and deep faith, but it is also a story of one man's journey into his own "otherness" and the emergence of a ministry that speaks to countless people who believe in a Gospel of love and inclusion.

Portrait

Elizabeth Adams has been granted unique access to Bishop Robinson and the events surrounding him. She is also a lifelong member of the Episcopal Church, and has been an observer, writer and speaker for many years about the interface between religion and contemporary life and politics.

Pressestimmen

"Gene Robinson exemplifies the worst of the gay culture of over-wealthy, bored, liberal America. He was clearly quite capable of a marital sexual relationship, until he fell for a gay lover." - Church of England Newspaper "The opponents [of Robinson] just have a seemingly insuperable problem with men who lie with men - even men in monogamous relationships who want to be Christians - and are prepared to split the church" - The Guardian "Canon Robinson seems beloved by his congregation and his diocese which elected him bishop from a wide range of candidates. They have stood by him throughout the storm his appointment has stirred up in the wider Anglican Church and simply ask that he should be judged for the work he does." - BBC News"
