Acts of Faith, Acts of Love

Gay Catholic Autobiographies as Sacred Texts
  • By Dugan McGinley

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
