Margaret5 Stars Out Of 5August 8, 2006MargaretJailed as a civil rights Freedom Rider in the 1960s, arrested for his antiwar protests during the Vietnam conflict, and known for his activism on behalf of nuclear disarmament, Presbyterian pastor William Sloane Coffin dared to speak truth to power for over 40 years. This collection of quotes from his sermons and unpublished writings serves as a candid record of his thoughts on a wide range of topics, including faith, love, economic justice, civil liberties, patriotism, war, peace, the church, and mortality. Usually credo is translated as I believe. Coffin, however, interpreted it to mean I have given my heart to. His deep commitment to the gospel shines through his eloquent words and highlights the fact that until his death in 2006, he unreservedly followed the Way as he understood it. His belief that Christianity is a worldview that undergirds progressive thought and action defined his activism. Love as exemplified by Jesus, however, was the sustaining force that supported him in his quest to improve the lot of the victims of social, political, and economic injustice. In the first chapter titled Faith, Hope, Love, he quotes I Corinthians 13 and comments, I doubt if in any other scriptures of the world there is a more radical statement of ethics. Some readers will strongly disagree with Coffins political and social views. Others will discover a kindred spirit. Yet Credo is a window into the soul of one of the most dynamic Christian preachers of the 20th century. It is a must-readregardless of which side of the fence youre on.
