ON THE podcast this week, the Revd Jarel Robinson-Brown talks about his book, Black, Gay, British, Christian, Queer: The Church and the famine of grace. It’s published by SCM Press and is available from the Church Times Bookshop for the special price of £15.99.
He is in conversation with the Revd Winnie Varghese, who is the Rector of St Luke’s Episcopal Church, Atlanta. It was recorded at an online book launch this week, which was introduced by David Shervington, the senior commissioning editor at SCM Press.
In a review of the book for the Church Times (Books, 3 September), the Revd Brunel James writes: “This book is a must-read and deserves to be a bestseller. There is a battle going on for the soul of the Church, and Jarel Robinson-Brown’s new book makes a courageous contribution to the discussion. It really should be compulsory reading for any church leader who has never thought through how we privilege the White and the heterosexual in our church life, and what this means for those among us who are Black and LGBTQ+.”

The Revd Jarel Robinson-Brown is Assistant Curate of St Botolph without Aldgate, in London.
