"In the church and even outside of it, few subjects stir controversy -- and tempers -- more quickly than the church's response to homosexuality. In Pastoral Care of Gays, Lesbians, and Their Families, David Switzer recognized the sensitivity of the homosexuality issue in the church. . . . [The book] will challenge readers to examine their ministry to gays and lesbians in the congregations and enhance their ministry to them."
