- "One of the most highly anticipated books of the year." "A major new book...'Queer Virtue' sparkles with a graceful writing style, provocative ideas, honest self-revelation, and up-to-date LGBTQ pop culture references..."
— Kittredge Cherry in Jesus in Love Blog <full review>.
- "Every page reverberates with vivid insights and suggestions for outreach...We could begin by handing Queer Virtue to anyone who is open to a joyously inclusive vision."
— Dr. Virginia Mollenkott in Christian Feminism Today <full review>
- "For a straight guy like me whose life experience has been anything but queer, Edman’s call for Christians to embrace queerness is both challenging and refreshing…The entire volume has a great deal to offer any person, LGBTQ or otherwise, who is concerned about the future of Christianity as a meaningful force in our society."
— Dan Wilkinson's in Unfundamentalist Christian blog <full review>
- “Elizabeth Edman’s Queer Virtue is a powerful work of theological and autobiographical reflection that illuminates the deep connections between queerness and Christianity. This book will be a valuable guide for anyone who navigates the liminal spaces between these distinct yet mutually-reinforcing worlds.”
—The Rev. Patrick S. Cheng, author of Radical Love: An Introduction to Queer Theology
- “The once marginalized discipline of Gay Studies is now decidedly back in the curriculum and in the intellectual arena. This book is a sterling example of the best of it, and on a subject – ethics and morality – that is an emerging area of interest in all fields. It will be a little classic, and will be read and argued about for a long time to come.”
—Harvey Cox, author of The Future of Faith and How to Read the Bible
- "A breath of fresh, queer, air…With vivacious smarts and a wicked sense of humor, Edman compels her readers to fully embrace our gloriously multifaceted God-given identities. If you’ve wondered if you can be fully queer and fully Christian, the answer is a resounding “yes,” and Edman will show you the way."
