10699 Reflections Over the Long Haul: A Memoir
Robert McAfee Brown
Westminister John Knox
ISBN 0-664-22404-0
BIO - Biography / BIOB / Book
Robert McAfee Brown was one of the greatest public theologians of his day. He was a pacifist who enlisted as a chaplain in World War II and who later aligned himself with his students to resist the draft and protest the war during Vietnam; a supporter of civil rights who went on the Freedom Ride to Selma and fought for farm workers' rights; and an ecumenist who participated in interreligious dialogue among Protestant, Jews, and Roman Catholics.

This is his memoir, the story of a modest man who lived life according to his conscience and his faith and who was a model for responsible social activism within and outside of the church. Interspersed with his writing are thoughts from his family members on the turbulent and sometimes frightening events through which they all lived.
10698 The Spiral Staircase: My Climb Out of Darkness
Karen Armstrong
Anchor Books
ISBN 0-385-72127-7
BIO - Biography / BIOA / Book
n 1962, at age seventeen, Karen Armstrong entered a convent, eager to meet God. After seven brutally unhappy years as a nun, she left her order to pursue English literature at Oxford. But convent life had profoundly altered her, and coping with the outside world and her expiring faith proved to be excruciating. Her deep solitude and a terrifying illness–diagnosed only years later as epilepsy–marked her forever as an outsider. In her own mind she was a complete failure: as a nun, as an academic, and as a normal woman capable of intimacy. Her future seemed very much in question until she stumbled into comparative theology. What she found, in learning, thinking, and writing about other religions, was the ecstasy and transcendence she had never felt as a nun. Gripping, revelatory, and inspirational, The Spiral Staircase is an extraordinary account of an astonishing spiritual journey.
