God’s Works Revealed proposes a compelling, challenging, and joyful vision for living as a lesbian, gay, or bisexual Catholic. The book draws from the deep well of traditional theology, Catholic teaching, and sacred scripture while also challenging assumptions that exclude LGB Catholics from the possibility of sexual expression, married life, and participation in the life of the Catholic Church. This work affirms that LGB Catholics can discover in our very sexuality the intentional and divinely-gifted grace to live our baptismal call to holiness and to share in God’s responsibility for this world and its people. This book also proposes a needed roadmap for the development of doctrine on this important and contemporary matter. Serious treatment is also given to the contributions of the natural and social sciences, which have significantly advanced our understanding of sexual orientation over the past three decades. Extensive endnotes will point a discerning reader to relevant Church documents and academic studies that address the topics discussed in this book.
