This was written at the time (circa the 1970s) to be a combination psychology explanation and self-help book to aid women to realize their potential by understanding the author’s premise that the then-recent social freedoms gained by women paradoxically resulted in greater restrictions on their personal expressions of them, for a variety of reasons the reader is encouraged to overcome.

Offered worldwide, available at Amazon.

Freedom, Glorious Freedom: The Spiritual Journey to the Fullness of Life For Gays, Lesbians, and Everybody Else by the late John J. McNeill, an academic theologian and former Jesuit priest turned psychotherapist and LGBT rights activist, is his religious spirituality self-help guidebook, free for a limited time courtesy of LGBT specialty publisher Lethe Press.

This was originally published in 1994 by Beacon Press. The book was intended to help religious LGBT persons and supporters reconcile their Christian beliefs and their sexual orientation in a positive manner, providing spiritually uplifting reassurance in the Christ-like message of love for all, with some examination and interpretation of the actual scriptures regarding various things, plus the obligatory 12-step DIY self-help program.
