This 242-page selection from the 30-year career of a veteran North Carolina Episcopal priest reflects his background as a former print journalist and college English teacher. His writing is a blend of the traditional with a flavoring of non-conformity—something like a Confederate statue wearing a Black Lives Matter tee shirt! In these sermons, Irish mysticism walks hand in hand with critical thinking, and the Social Gospel and the Gospel of Atonement engage in fisticuffs.
