Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this second book by Presiding Bishop Jefferts Schori, she explores issues and challenges of deep concern to the Episcopal Church, the wider Body of Christ, and the world at large. Arranged thematically, her essays reflect on the travel, issues, people, and passions that have driven the first three years of her primacy. She places particular emphasis on the Millennium Development Goals, plus the turmoil within the Anglican Communion and the Episcopal Church in the United States.

Review:

"This second book by Jefferts Schori (A Wing and a Prayer), presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church (USA), is, like her earlier work, a collection of sermons and speeches given by the bishop at conferences and gatherings around the world, as the title suggests. Her themes are consistently sounded: work for peace and justice, care for the least of these. Doing this work and being the prophetic voice that decries injustice and lack of care are particular duties of those who follow Jesus; Jefferts Schori's reading of the gospels makes them social blueprints for the New Jerusalem. The bishop's reflections on leadership and on religion and science are particularly interesting because they reflect her unique experience as a professional oceanographer and the first female primate within the Anglican Communion. To read her public addresses is also to see the public face of the Episcopal Church today. Those who disagree with her and find her theology narrow will not be convinced by this new round of reflections; those who are encouraged by her leadership will be impressed by the scope of her globe-trotting work for peace and justice."
