I am responding mostly to Craig T Coffey. Someday you will be faced with someone you love, who is born a homosexual and YOU WILL realize your sexuality is given to you at birth (yours apparently heterosexual. TELLING PEOPLE THEY MUST CHOOSE BETWEEN THEMSELVES, THE WAY THEY WERE BORN AND GOD IS A TRUE SIN IN ITSELF. If you had been born homosexual yourself you may actually realize the daily struggle because of uneducated people such as yourself proclaiming your view of the God I know and love. God will be their judge and yours.

He is a wonderful Catholic and Jesuit that died recently. I had the pleasure of meeting him at MCC Seattle in the early '90s. I saw the life and mission of Jesus emanating from his eyes and soul when I met him. My heart was strangely warmed (like Wesley) and I felt a tremendous release after reading this book.

I got this book for my birthday one year after finding it on the shelf at a bookstore. Being a part of the minority group of gay Christians, I was intrigued. The "target audience" for the book is for homosexuals and their loved ones, but it really could be read by anyone, and I think it should be. McNeill offers theology on living in fear, guilt, shame, anger, and living with pathological faith and the importance of maturing spiritually. I think any Christian can relate to any (if not all) of these topics, and not just struggling gay Christians. It's the kind of book that you may want to read with a pencil or pen in your hand so you can underline parts that are important to you. (That's what I did.) This is a caring, humble, and comforting book, and one that I highly recommend and cherish.

I am a gay ordained minister of the gospel, and this book helped me accept my homosexuality. It is suberbly written and researched. A must for anyone coming out, and a definite must for any minsiter workign with the gay community. God bless the author.

Sadly, this book takes Scripture completely out of context and simply serves as a co-dependent source for those wanting to validate the sin of homosexuality. McNeil is a notable false teacher in the evangelical community. Like other pro-homosexual "researchers", McNeil cannot escape the FACT of what the Bible states about the sin. He did hear from a spirit ... it just wasn't the Holy Spirit. McNeil does nothing to "liberate" homosexuals. His works only contribute to keeping them in spiritual bondage.
Good perspective. Really enjoyed reading this book.
