Well-known Anglican priest and social critic Boyd continues his prolific literary output with this volume, which is at once autobiography and meditation. Boyd here tells us more than he has previously about his early career in Hollywood, his decision to enter the ministry, and his experiences as seminarian and as priest. As in several recent works, Boyd focuses on his experience as a gay man in the service of the church. This tendency to focus on his own experience contrasts sharply with the thrust of the earlier works that established his reputation, and his writings have become progressively less compelling. This is particularly true of the present book, which leaves the reader awaiting some of Boyd's earlier vibrancy. Recommended only for collections with a strong interest in the subject.

The author of Are You Running With Me, Jesus? and Take Off the Masks offers a relatively mellow account of his background, his current ministry, his feelings about love, homosexuality, liberation theology and Christian ecumenism. "Much of the rubric is pedestrian, if deeply felt," PW wrote.
