Born in to, raised up in, and then employed by evangelical megachurches, Colby Martin was your prototypical conservative Christian Pastor.
Life was going as planned until he noticed his heart did not agree with his head on the subject of homosexuality.
This launched a journey that began with getting fired by his church because of his theological stance on sexuality, and culminated in planting a vibrant Progressive Christian Church in San Diego.
UnClobber weaves Colby's story throughout chapters that unpack the clobber passages (the Bible verses traditionally used by the church to condemn the LGBT community).
His unique voice, fresh insights, and incredible journey will inspire and challenge the church in the 21st century.
