2 - 4 weeks availability
In "Acts of Faith, Acts of Love," McGinely explores the overlap of religious and sexual identities in the stories gay men write about themselves. The autobiographical writings of forty gay Catholics (or once Catholics) are analysed. The work is both literary and theological on the premise that experience constitutes one of the four sources of theological reflection, along with scripture, tradition, and reason. 'An important contribution to the ongoing discussion of homosexuality and religion... resounds with the authenticity and integrity of personal narrative and academic critique. Highly recommended.' "Library Journal" 'McGinley has done a great service... funny... heartbreaking' "Human Development"
Dugan McGinley, who teaches religious studies at Temple University, considers himself a 'highly committed Catholic'. He has worked throughout his adult life as music director and liturgist in a number of Roman Catholic parishes.
