Leib focuses on how Western religious and ethical traditions find their origins in masculine impulses toward intimacy. He echoes the works of Edward Carpenter, a Victorian Anglican priest who spoke out against the repressive sexual ethic of his day and used his relationship with Walt Whitman as a resource for such terms as fierce companions and sacred homosexuality.
