New Book Reveals Struggles of Leaving a Conservative Church

For a large number of people, churches offer a place of sanctuary, welcome and understanding. Unfortunately, that is not always the case.

"The Light at the End of the Closet" by James Cavanaugh details the emotional journey of a man who came to embrace his true self as an 'out' gay man despite his involvement in a conservative church. More than a story of acceptance, the book explores the changes of a marriage and family, as well as the harsh reactions of his religious community.

Cavanaugh shares his story of trials, mistakes and challenges surrounding the path to openness and honesty. A father, husband during a 13-year marriage and a spiritual man, Cavanaugh brings a thoughtful and experienced voice to the struggle for acceptance, honesty and equality.

"I wrote this book to help those people who may be deciding whether or not to 'come out'," said Cavanaugh. "I've never believed it's the only path, and for many it's not, but I wanted to show that it can be done with dignity and pride."
