Publisher's Description

Letters from Samaria gathers together much of Louie (Crew) Clay’s best and most influential prose and poetry, written from 1974 until the present day, including an essay composed especially for the volume. Much of the material has not appeared since its original publication in newsletters and other ephemeral sources. It is crisply written, and often surprising for its bravery, matter-of-fact self-disclosure, insight, and love. Louie played a pivotal role in transforming The Episcopal Church – and, indeed, Christianity – over the past 40 years. This collection provides a window into Louie Clay’s unlikely and at times shocking ministry throughout the years as history was unfolding.

• Foreword by Phyllis Tickle
• Louie Clay has been the leading voice in LGBTQ issues in the Church over the past forty years; founder of Integrity;
• Well-loved, well-known Episcopalian
• Funny, sharp, sad, thoughtful, poignant, historic
• Afterword by Bishop Mary Glasspool, bishop suffragan of the Episcopal Dicoese of Los Angeles
