Armed with only six passages in the Bible—often known as the “Clobber Passages”—the conservative Christian position has been one that stands against the full inclusion of our LGBTQ siblings. UnClobber reexamines each of those frequently quoted passages of Scripture, alternating with author Colby Martin’s own story of being fired from an evangelical megachurch when they discovered his stance on sexuality.

UnClobber reexamines what the Bible says (and does not say) about homosexuality in such a way that sheds divine light on outdated and inaccurate assumptions and interpretations. This new edition equips study groups and congregations with questions for discussion and a sermon series guide for preachers.

Colby Martin is the author of UnClobber: Rethinking Our Misuse of the Bible on Homosexuality and The Shift: Surviving and Thriving after Moving from Conservative to Progressive Christianity. As a leading voice in the post-evangelical space, he planted a progressive Christian church in San Diego (Sojourn Grace Collective), writes a Substack newsletter (perspective, and travels the country speaking to communities of faith about progressive Christianity.

by Westminster John Knox Press

UnClobber is a breath of fresh air in the often swampy religious conversations on homosexuality.”

-Foreword Reviews

“Martin has written that book. The one you give your friend—the friend who knows that inclusion is the only path forward but keeps getting told, ‘but the Bible says. . . .’ In his fresh and accessible way, Martin shows what the Bible actually says—clearing up all sorts of confusion along the way.”

-Rob Bell, New York Times best-selling author of Love Wins

UnClobber combines thoughtful theological study with a compelling pastoral memoir to create a powerful progressive Christian manifesto. This is a call for all Christians to love better and without condition.”

-Kristen Howerton, author of Rage Against the Minivan

“Martin’s insight, winsome spirit, and passion have come together to create a book that I not only love but am proud to share with those whom I love. UnClobber is a great gift for all who are seeking deeper understanding, faith, and compassion.”

-Doug Pagitt, pastor, author, and co-founder of Vote Common Good

“Written with a theologian’s intelligence and a pastor’s sensitivity, this book is the resource thousands have been waiting for.”

-Brian McLaren, author and activist

“Martin shows us that he’s not only a thoughtful theologian, but also perfectly displays the beauty of his humanness by sharing vulnerably about his own story in the only way he knows how: with honesty, humor and grace. A profoundly important book!”

-Candice Czubernat, therapist, writer, and founder of The Christian Closet
