The following review was contributed by:
The Gay Face of God is the autobiography of Archbishop Bruce J.
Simpson. The story starts with the Simpson's birth, the result of a rape, and his troubled childhood. The book then proceeds through the author's search for his calling.
This journey takes the author to the air force where he becomes the first military man to be discharged for being gay.
Simpson then becomes an award winning police officer and eventually joins the seminary to train to become a Roman Catholic priest.
Throughout all of these challenges, Simpson is a man who also happens to be gay. Nonetheless, the fact that he is gay,continues to put unfair roadblocks in the author's life.
The Face of God is the story of one man. However, the author's story attempts to speak for and to all people who struggle because of their sexual orientation. Furthermore, the author wishes to challenge the anti-gay sentiments, practices, and legislation of the military, policing, and religious worlds.
