Summary
"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 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 forty years. This collection provides a window into Louie Clay's unlikely and at times shocking ministry throughout the years as history was unfolding." (Publisher)
