About the Author
John J. McNeill (1925-2015) was an ordained priest and practicing psychotherapist. In 1987, he was expelled from the Society of Jesus for refusing to cease his ministry to gay men and lesbians. He received a doctorate in philosophy from Louvain University in Belgium and taught philosophy and theology at Fordham University, Union Theological Seminary, and other institutions. McNeill was the author of several works on theology and sexuality, including Taking a Chance on God and Freedom, Glorious Freedom.
Reviews
McNeill draws on the insights of the gay and lesbian liberation movement, his counseling experience with lesbian and gay people, and a variety of faith traditions--Catholic, mainstream Protestant, Evangelical and other world religions--to produce a unique, comprehensive, life-giving ethic.
