Love Free or Die is about a man whose two defining passions the world cannot reconcile: his love of God and for his partner Mark. It is about church and state, love and marriage, faith and identity ;one man's struggle to dispel the notion that god's love has limits.

Bishop Robinson's 2003 elevation, in the Episcopal diocese of New Hampshire, ignited a worldwide firestorm in the Anglican Communion that has threatened schism. Even as he has pushed for greater inclusion within his own church, Bishop Robinson has become a standard bearer in the fight over the rights of LGBT people to receive full acceptance in churches and beyond.
