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.
