Rev. Peter J. Gomes

May 22, 1942 – February 28, 2011

Considered one of the greatest preachers of his generation, Peter Gomes spent most of his career teaching at Harvard University. He came out as gay in 1991 and became a staunch advocate of acceptance of homosexuality in American society and religion. He was particularly well-known for his sermon following the attacks of September 11, 2001. His 1996 book entitled The Good Book: Reading the Bible with Mind and Heart was heralded as “Easily the best contemporary book on the Bible for thoughtful people.”
