O'BRIEN, Glen: Praying From the Margins,

Gospel Reflections of a Gay Man
Columbia Press, 2001

95 pages.

Catholic, Scripture, Spirituality, Prayer, Gay Male

Strongly recommended by Urs Mattman("Coming In"), who lists it among the classics of gay/lesbian spiritual literature:
"A small book, yet large on wisdom"
From Google books:
"Glen O'Brien recounts some spiritual experiences of gay men, and then reflects on these experiences in the light of stories and events in the gospels. In the presence of Jesus to the "sinners and outcasts" of his time he sees a clear statement of God's love and compassion for all peoplee, ansd a context for dealing with the pain that many gay people suffer in their sense of exclusion from the Christian community.

These reflections will be read with joy by some, with concern by others. Hopefully they will make every reader stop and think."
