Synopsis of William Sloane Coffin Jr.: A Holy Impatience

"This is an elegantly written biography, a portrait of a complex man negotiating complex times, written by a scholar equal to the task. In many ways this is the best way to see post-World War II America—from the inside out—through the eyes of a flawed humanitarian and restless searcher."—Ken Burns; "Warren Goldstein has given us a brilliantly insightful, richly detailed portrait of one of America's larger-than-life heroes-a man who, despite terrible blind-spots and flaws, managed to breathe passion back into Christianity and high moral purpose into the political struggles of the sixties."-Barbara Ehrenreich; "Bill Coffin is an American Knight, stranger to fear, the visionary's best companion, a joyfully embattled Christian, his life the richest imaginable. This book is a worthy and moving introduction to his grand transcendent spirit." - Arthur Miller, playwright and author
