The Man Jesus Loved
The Man Jesus Loved is more academic than the rest of the books I've been reading this week. It is still acessible to most people. Theodore W. Jennings, Jr. explores a number of texts in the New Testament for their homoerotic narrative. It is clear that they are more prevalent than is usually assumed. There are positive messages for the gay reader in both Greek and Hebrew Testament, Jennings does a good job of liming out the presence in a manner that shows the biblical scholarship without making the non-scholar work through the technical language.
