Since graduating from the Earlham School of Religion with a Master of Divinity in 2004, Rev. Crim has dedicated his career to making Christian teachings accessible and relevant to contemporary audiences, especially those historically marginalized by mainstream Christian communities. His new book aims to bridge the gap between ancient texts and modern societal issues.

"Queering My Religion" has already made a significant impact, earning three prestigious literary awards and receiving praise for its innovative approach to biblical stories. The book includes an appendix with scholarly notes that provide deeper insight into the source texts, enhancing its appeal as a resource for both religious and academic communities.

In his book, Rev. Crim explores themes of love, faith, and identity, offering a fresh and inclusive perspective that challenges traditional interpretations of scripture. "These stories are about more than history; they resonate with the ongoing struggles and triumphs of the LGBTQ+ community," said Crim during a recent interview. "It’s about understanding our past to enrich our present and empower our future."

Critics and readers alike have hailed "Queering My Religion" as a groundbreaking work that expands the conversation around religion and LGBTQ+ identities. The book is available for purchase on Amazon in Kindle, paperback, and hardcover editions, promising to reach a broad audience eager to explore these compelling narratives.

With this debut, Rev. Crim not only establishes himself as a pioneering author but also strengthens his commitment to fostering a more inclusive and understanding Christian community. His work is expected to spark meaningful discussions and inspire further exploration into the intersections of faith and identity.
