Reviews

"Given Up for You is a wonder–as poetic, spare, and declarative as the gospels themselves."–Foreword Reviews

"A spiritual journey, a parenting journey, and a coming-out journey that shows us how each of these paths really intertwines."–Mombian

"Poetic, funny, and deeply honest. . . . [White's] larger point is that we can never have it all–gay or straight, rural or urban, Catholic or Protestant. Not this side of the eschaton. We're always going to have to give up something."–Christian Century
