    I guess I came into this book thinking it would be something else, and perhaps since the author was a former Jesuit and he got a degree from the oldest Catholic university either in Belgium or in Europe (can't remember which. What up Leuven!), AND he taught at Fordham University, a beloved school of mine, I might've expected more out of him. His writing wasn't always cohesive, and he made some pretty silly claims.

Having said all that I think I benefited a lot from reading it. It is a massive and really complicated subject he's trying to talk about. Plus, I loved all of his personal stories. The ending was decent too. Read if you've got some time on your hands!

    McNeill addresses the spiritual and psychological concerns of the lesbian & gay communities. He draws from his counseling and ministry with the gay & lesbian community and his experience as an ordained Catholic priest who was expelled because of his beliefs and work with these communities. Some parts of the book are dated but not irrelevant. He does not bash religion which I respect, but challenges it using the gospels.

    I very much wanted to rate this higher. Unfortunately, while remarkable in its time, much of the content is now frightfully dated and I was frustrated by how shallow many of the essays are. They seemed to end before saying much at all. I think it is a volume best left as an important historical resource.
