Editorial Reviews

For half a century, William Sloane Coffin stood as a force for progressive religion in America and in the world. Both a tribute to his remarkable life and a prophetic call to the nation, William Sloane Coffin: An American Prophet contains the wisdom of a courageous man who carried on a lover's quarrel with America. With powerful messages on terrorism, faith, politics, and hope--engagingly delivered as only William Sloane Coffin can--the documentary concludes with a testimony to his legacy of justice and love, given by his friends: Arthur Miller, James Carroll, Susannah Heschel, and Robert and Sally Benton.

This scholar of immense wisdom breaks down the complexities of morality, our faith and our souls in words that have you saying, "Why didn't I ever think of it that way?" There is only one Bill Coffin and his absence leaves us all poorer. Well worth viewing many times.

Format: DVD
Liberal Christian pastor William Sloane Coffin (1925-2006) carried on what he called a lover's quarrel with the United States for most of his adult life. "An American Prophet" captures extensive interviews with him, conducted after he suffered a debilitating stroke and just a couple of years before he passed away. Wherever you fall on the political spectrum, and whatever your faith or lack thereof, it's worth listening to what this leader of the civil rights and nuclear disarmament movements has to say about civil rights, human rights, war and peace, faith, optimism, and the meaning of patriotism. In an era where too many of us focus inward and feel we can't matter in the larger world, Coffin offers a joyful, hopeful example of the engaged activist's life.

The film is interesting for its subject matter rather than its style, which is pretty pedestrian and talking-head oriented.
