Format: Paperback
Fred Clarkson has been active in supporting liberal issues apparently for most of his life. In this group of essays he is aiming at inspiring others on our side of the political fence to get off our arses and play ball. Where are the ministerial lions of old who used their pulpits to support civil rights, nonviolence, love, hope and charity among their congregants. Oh, I know there are a few still showing their long and sharp teeth, but most preachers and ministers on the religious left seem to have been defanged and had their claws torn out. As the prize winning poet, William Butler Yeats once wrote, "the best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity!"

Well, Yeats wasn't writing about Clarkson or his essayists, or about my friend Lowell Grisham, a native of Oxford Mississippi and now the passionate minister of St Paul's Episcopal Church in my little home town. He has joyfully taken on "the worst" here in Fayetteville sicne arriving here several years ago. And Fredrick does, too.

If you are one of the silent religious liberals in our land, read these essays. See if they strick a spark to your tinder.
