CLGS hosts reading by author of "Sex As God Intended"

March 7, 2009 at 6:00pm

CLGS and New Spirit Community Church of Berkeley join together to celebrate the publication of John McNeill’s new book, Sex As God Intended. Join author McNeill and guest speakers Bill Glenn, Christina Hutchins, and Jim Mitulski for a reading from the book followed by a panel discussion on McNeill’s understanding of sex for LGBT Christians.

The event will be held in PSR’s Bade Museum. There is no charge for admission; all are welcome.

For more than 35 years, John McNeill, an ordained Jesuit priest and psychotherapist, has been devoting his life to spreading the good news of God’s love for LGBT Christians. McNeill presents a simple and straightforward answer to the question: What did God invent sex for? The answer, derived from an incisive investigation of the Jewish and Christian Scriptures, is that God intended sex as a source of pleasure, joy, and love.

Sex As God Intended represents a concise summary of the wisdom culled over a lifetime. McNeill’s ideas have enriched the faith of thousands, including fellow teachers, religious scholars, ministers and lay folk.

This volume includes a Festschrift to John McNeill, celebrating his life and work in a series of essays by students, friends, and activists, honoring him for his lasting contribution and spelling out how he touched their lives and work.
