Justin Lee on faith, culture, and nuance


Publishing and the Author’s Journey

For years, the publishing world was a complete mystery to me. But as I wrote my first two books, I sometimes blogged about the experience and things that surprised me along the way.

Scroll down for some of my favorite posts about becoming an author. If you’d like to learn more:

  • My first book, Torn, was written to Christian audiences about how to stop “the gay debate” from tearing apart families and churches. It was based on my own years of experience in that field and ended up one of the most widely read books on the subject, much to my surprise. You can download a free study guide here.
  • My second book, Talking Across the Divide, was written for a general (secular) audience, applying the dialogue principles I learned in my LGBTQ/faith work to a wide variety of topics, such as politics and interpersonal disputes. It also has a free study guide.
  • Some of my book-related blog posts were routine updates on the status of my books, so below I’ve only included some of the more interesting posts. If you prefer, though, you can view all the book-related blog posts instead.
