The essential teaching of a Christian church is to embrace differences among people and invite them on a loving journey toward wholeness. Ferry, an ordained Anglican priest, lost that sense of wholeness after effectively serving the church for 11 years and being unable to be honest about who he was as a whole loving person. Ferry has written a deeply moving history of his struggle as a Christian and a gay person. Through an intense courtroom drama, the reader is given a taste of the arbitrary methods within the church over the issue of sexuality and the denial of human dignity. The issue of ``be gay but don't tell'' leads to hostile barriers; the book ends hoping that these barriers will be broken. This inspirational story of ``coming out'' to embrace Christian love has value in any collection.-- L. Kriz, Sioux City P.L., Ia.
