In the original book for which this study guide was created, Walking the Bridgeless Canyon: Repairing the Breach between the Church and the LGBT Community, Baldock uncovers the historical, cultural, medical, and political filters of discrimination through which the LGBT community is seen. With the foundation firmly established, she examines the most controversial filter of all: what the Bible says about same-sex behavior.

The book Walking the Bridgeless Canyon carefully constructs a historical timeline detailing the social, medical, cultural, political, and religious discrimination impacting the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender communities. It is well researched and academic, yet highly accessible.

This study guide for individuals and groups is for use with the book Walking the Bridgeless Canyon. It assists in removing the lenses and filters through which we view lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people and further, how we interpret the six passages of Scripture related to same-sex behavior.

This nine section discussion and study series is suitable for personal or group study. In each session, participants are assigned between 25-80 pages of reading in the main textbook, followed by five pages of review in this guide, and on average nine related questions.

Anyone can lead the study. Though the material may be frequently challenging, the structure is simple to follow.

Review quote

If you read only one book on the history of LGBT rights, the culture, psychotherapy, religious reactions, and what the Bible really says about being gay, Walking the Bridgeless Canyon should be it. It is well-researched, compelling, and eye opening. If this book had existed when I became an anti-gay Christian activist, I would have questioned if what I was doing was truly Gods will or if it was nothing more than a man-made construct meant to maintain white heterosexual male dominance on the backs of gay people and women. The Study Guide opens up this book for discussion and social interaction. Kathy Baldock has spent years digging into the nooks and crannies to find the most accurate information available on the struggle LGBT people have endured for the most basic of human rights. The original book is destined to be the go-to resource for everyone interested in the truth about LGBT people, our rights, and the rights of all people. Use the study guide with the main book to explore your own perceptions and bring the discussion into your circle of influence. --Yvette Cantu Schneider, former policy analyst at Family Research Council, former director of women's ministry at Exodus International, and author of the book Never Not Broken
