Boston to Berkeley: Unlikely Messengers in a Journey of Faith by Phyllis A Travis

Boston to Berkeley: Unlikely Messengers in a Journey of Faith


Boston to Berkeley: Unlikely Messengers in a Journey of Faith by Phyllis A Travis

This harrowing personal account of extreme tests of faith takes the reader on a roller coaster of raw emotional experiences. From the cut and thrust of the corporate arena to spiritual enlightenment, this is one hell of a bumpy ride and not for the faint hearted. As one hurdle is scrambled, another straddles the path, and with ironic cruelty, the author is often left floundering in a vicious world of homophobia, fear and intolerance. This is a story of loss, grief, anger, insight and above all, courage and fortitude. It is also a story of love, battered beyond belief, but surviving. It is a story about what it is to be gay and aspire to the priesthood. From Boston to Berkeley, from despair to salvation, the most unlikely messengers light the Way.
