WaterBrook Multnomah, a Christian publisher, has resigned its membership in the National Religious Broadcasters following controversy over “God and the Gay Christian: The Biblical Case in Support of Same-Sex Relationships,” a book affirming homosexuality.
The move follows frustrations voiced by conservative Christians who were angry over Convergent Books’ decision to publish the book; Covergent and WaterBrook Multnomah are sister imprints associated with Penguin Random House.
