In Depth Reviews
"A sincere memoir... will be welcome to churchgoers looking for direction as they navigate the changing tide of LGBTQ acceptance within Christian communities." -Publishers Weekly
"Conservative Christians ought to examine these clobber passages and discover what they say (or don’t say) about sexual orientation and gender. To that end, Martin is a good dialogue partner because he takes the Bible seriously and engages these texts. LGBTQ allies will appreciate Martin’s story and commitment to understanding the Gospel of Grace inclusively. Those on the fence will find plenty of food for thought." -Book Reviewer, James Matichuk
"This is a book that needs to get into as many hands as possible... I’m glad I read this, as I feel my understanding of the complexities of the Bible is now that much greater. I can now say that I’m a Christian that doesn’t judge gay people, and now I know why..." -Zachary Houle on Medium
"UnClobber is a wonderful starting point in realigning faith, community, and LGBTQ peoples grounded in the experience of one sojourner." -Ben A Johnson
"UnClobber challenges us to see those within the LGBTQ community as made in the image of God, but it goes beyond that – It dares us to see ourselves as part of the community of Christ." -Colleen Batchelder
