Does Jesus Really Love Me? A Gay Christian’s Pilgrimage in Search of God in America chronicles Jeff Chu’s year-long investigation into the attitudes and practices of American Christians, gay and straight, toward the relationship between homosexuality and faith.

Chu frames the book as a quest to answer the haunting question “Does Jesus really love me in spite of the fact that I am gay?”
Differently stated, the question a great number of Christians are asking (both gay and straight, incidentally) is “How can I reconcile two deeply rooted yet conflicting aspects of my being—my sexuality and my faith in Christ?”
