In 1994, Michael Kelly recorded six video lectures for the Erospirit Research Institute, charting a spirituality for gay and lesbian Christians grounded in the contemplative, mystical traditions of the church. Joseph Kramer, who commissioned the lectures, writes, "His powerful words ... seemed to come straight from his heart and right into mine. I told Michael that he was offering transformative guidance, like Joseph Campbell did in his Hero's Journey. 'You have described the Mystic's Journey for Gay and Lesbian Christians.'"
The lectures, released in 1995, were digitised and re-released in 2020. Now this transcription of the lectures is published for the first time, and includes a study guide to the series prepared by Michael Kelly.
"The Erotic Contemplative is the most powerful and insightful study of Gay Spirituality that I know of. I have watched 'The Road from Emmaus' lecture three times, and still find new riches " - John J. McNeill, PhD. Author of The Church and the Homosexual
