This is the story of Harold T. Lewis's lifelong love affair with the Episcopal Church, an institution about which he is both passionate and circumspect. He cheers the via media of Anglicanism in one passage and, in the next, denounces the church's sometimes phlegmatic responses to racism, sexism, and intolerance of every other kind. Lewis's story begins with growing up in a strict, black, High Church parish in Brooklyn during the waning glory days of Anglo-Catholic triumphalism. So securely enveloped is he in the elaborate, even rarified mantle of this tradition that, when he first experiences the larger church as a young seminarian, he doesn't fully understand its power and protection. But as he embarks upon the priesthood and encounters racism, discord, and controversy in the church of the 70s, 80s, and 90s, Lewis realizes how handily the Christian formation of his youth-considered obsolete by some, has prepared him for every modern challenge
How Lewis' Christian formation has prepared him for every modern challenge.
