Combining the best in contemporary personality development theory with a solid grasp of the central personal and social issues facing lesbian and gay people, the author provides a practical and balanced resource, even for the director approaching the subject for the first time. I highly recommend this book, which I think will take its place among the few classics on gay spirituality." --Robert Nugent, S.D.S.Co-founder of New Ways Ministry"Again and again I scribbled 'Excellent!' in the margins of this book -- unflinching in examining the gay experience, refreshing in recognizing God's handiwork there, illuminating in charting this particular path of spiritual growth, and chockfull of references creatively and insightfully used. Not only spiritual directors will welcome this book, but also counselors, teachers, religious leaders, parents, friends, and anyone seriously interested in gay spirituality, including lesbian and gay people themselves --Daniel A.
