If it Wasn't Love: Sex, Death and God Summary


If it Wasn't Love: Sex, Death and God by Bernard J. Lynch

All Religion is about the denial of God. This is a book about Life, Love, Sexuality, Death and God. It is a story of many people's stories, but most of all it is my story. Here for the first time is a truth birthed from fear and oppression and redeemed by love. When I first started putting the book together, I had some scattered ideas as to how I would do this. Some of the scenes written in the early seventies and eighties were never intended to form part of a whole. They stood alone, as a lecture here or an article there. This is in fact true for most of the project in hand. It is my hope and indeed my belief that the book holds together as one man's attempt to be honest with God. I hasten to add that in no way is this a holy book. The words erection and Resurrection, masturbation and Holy Mass all appear with equal authenticity, pain and celebration. It is no book for the pious or those seeking a quick fix.

If it Wasn't Love: Sex, Death and God Reviews


A companion book to Bernard Lynch; A Priest on Trial, If it Wasn't Love shines a necessary if often uncomfortable bright light on the personal, political and spiritual dimensions of our half -understood and half-lived sexuality. (Jim Cotter, (Cairns Publications), ordained Anglican, author of Good Fruits, Pleasure, Pain and Passion, and Quiverful.) Bernard Lynch has been at the forefront of theological debate and political activism since the 1980s. His candid and provocative account of his life as a gay priest will fascinate readers gay and straight, of all faiths and of none. (Michael Arditti, Author of seven highly acclaimed novels, most recently Jubilate)
