The author of The Church and the Homosexual (Beacon Pr., 1988. 3d ed.), former Jesuit McNeill was expelled from his order for violating the Vatican's demand that he remain silent concerning homosexuality and that he cease his ministry among gay men and lesbians. This book, his first published statement since his expulsion, has a singular merit: no apology for homosexuality, it is addressed directly to lesbians and gay men, treating their spiritual and psychological concerns with much success. Of particular importance to seminary and other religious libraries, this book will also be useful in public libraries, since it is geared to the common believer who happens to be gay.James Michael MacLeod, Library of Congress
