Exploring God, sex and death in the time of AIDS. The author writes: ‘this book came out of my five years steeped in the experience of HIV and AIDS with many friends. It is my attempt to put into words what that experience meant to me and how in particular it reshaped my spirituality as a gay Christian’.


‘The book is an account, with spiritual reflection, of the experience of a gay Catholic priest who has spent time ministering with HIV-positive gay men. It will challenge those who are uneasy about diversity within their worship groups and it will encourage those who seek to establish an inclusive community of prayer and service. I was very moved by this work and especially at the ways in which Dr Michael Pattison encourages a view of conflict resolution as a walk alongside those who are not like us.’ — M. Donovan
