Space at the Table

Written by:  Brad Harper

Published by: Zeal Books| 2/23/2016


Can a theologian and his gay son overcome the differences in belief that threaten to destroy their relationship? For Brad and Drew Harper, that question wasn’t theoretical.

The Harpers share their hard-won victories, taking us on their journey as parent and child from the churches of middle America to the penthouses of New York’s party scenes, through a pastor’s kid childhood and painful conversion therapy to the healing and depth they found in their relationship. It’s a journey from anger and fear to love.

Space at the Table is a profoundly moving memoir, written with compassion, grit and humor. It is also a guide, showing us a way through the roadblocks that threaten to devastate families and the broader religious and LBGTQ communities.
Speaking from their own experience, Brad and Drew offer an invitation to join them in a place where love is stronger than the beliefs that divide us.
