Coming Out Within: Stages of Spiritual Awakening for Lesbians and Gay Men. Craig O'Neill & Kathleen Ritter

Loss--feeling unacceptable to family, church, or workplace; losing loved ones to AIDS; being despised by segments of society--is universal among lesbians and gay men. Using an eight-phase model illustrated with real case histories, the authors explore loss as a catalyst for growth and personal and spiritual transformation.

Waiting for the Call: From Preacher's Daughter to Lesbian Mom. Jacqueline Taylor

“Well-written, absorbing, and a great pleasure to read . . . will appeal to Christians struggling to square their traditional beliefs with acceptance of homosexuality as well as to all those interested in adoption, lesbian marriage, and the changing shape of America’s families.” — Elizabeth C. Fine, Virginia Tech University

Sex and the Sacred: Gay Identity and Spiritual Growth. Daniel A. Helminiak

"AN EXTRAORDINARY BOOK for which all lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex people should be grateful. I especially commend the chapter 'The Trinitarian Vocation of the Gay Community.' Danial Helminiak has expertise in many connected fields--theology, biblical scholarship, psychotherapy, spiritual direction--and brings his erudition, insight, and wisdom to bear on thorny issues facing the gay community. Whatever he touches he illuminates with prose that is easy to read and understand." -- Father John McNeill, Author of the groundbreaking book The Church and the Homosexual and numerous other books on gay spirituality; ousted from the Jesuits by the Vatican for his ministry to gay and lesbian Catholics

Gay Male Christian Couples: Life Stories. Andrew K. T. Yip

“[T]he author has provided a surprisingly comprehensive overview of the dynamics of partnership between gay male christian couples.”–Sexualities

No Ordinary Child: A Christian Mother's Acceptance of Her Gay Son. Jacqueline Ley

This book of reflections on a mother's journey from craving 'normality' for her gay son to celebrating him as a blessedly extraordinary creature of God is not only a chronicle of a remarkable change of attitude. It is also an argument for letting go of our preconceptions about other people - often those nearest and dearest to us - and acknowledging that what God plans for their lives may be something greater and more mysterious than we can ever imagine.

Spiritual Direction and the Gay Person. James Empereur

One does not have to be Roman Catholic to appreciate the many spiritual insights offered in this fine work. While not avoiding the moral issues which surround homosexuality, this book offers sound pastoral insight to the unique and challenging spiritual quests of homosexual persons. This book has much to say about the spiritual significance of the suffering experienced by homosexual persons as a result of bigotry and discrimination. Furthermore, the book does not give homosexual persons a "sexual license" but rather a perspective from which they can understand the centrality of their sexuality to their personhood. I enthusiastically recommend this book for anyone interested in the spiritual quest of the homosexual person. (Review by a reader at Amazon.com)

From Wounded Hearts: Faith Stories Of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, And Transgender People And Those Who Love Them. Roberta Showalter Kreider

This is a great book for anyone who wants to expand their understanding of those who are any of the above. It is so easy for those of us not in this situation to misunderstand and even to have very negative beliefs about any of these people. To hear their own individual stories in a non-judgemental way is to open all of us to greater acceptance and love. (Review by Evelyn Ediger at Amazon.com)
