Love does not begin with condemnationCan an evangelical 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-and neither was the resounding "yes" they found after years of struggle. Writing to each other with compassion, grit, and humor, Brad and Drew take us on their journey as parent and child -from the churches of Middle America to the penthouses of New York's party scenes, from a pastor's-kid childhood and painful conversion therapy to the hard-won victories of their adult relationship. But Space at the Table is more than just a memoir. It is a guide, showing us a way through the roadblocks that threaten to devastate both families and the broader evangelical 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.

Professional reviews

"Father (Brad) and son (Drew) find meaningful common ground despite what some might see as fundamental differences. It's a powerful story of reconciling religion and sexuality made all the more memorable because each half of the conversation is narrated by the actual person involved. The audiobook feels especially authentic due to the balancing of emotions one hears as each principal reads and explains his struggles with the other's decisions or experiences. Their narrations may not be the best--they sometimes stumble through sections--but they capture the earnest desire of both people to make the choice to be a family. Taken together, this dialogue offers important insights and considerations for others who find themselves on similar paths. L.E. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
