Honourable... empassioned and tender (Sara Maitland
'Two journeys are powerfully described - Rosemary finds a brother and a meaning to life and Simon finds he can survive a bullying fundamentalist father to accept himself first as a gay priest, then as a man living with AIDS... Rosemary Bailey's book will shock because it reveals the damage done to gay priests by the church, but it also shows that openness and honesty breed love and understanding? Revd Malcolm Johnson, Bishop of London's Adviser on Pastoral Care and Counselling
