Author(s): Frank T. Griswold
Frank Griswold writes out of his understanding that "all things have the potential to reveal the Divine and the mystery of love that lies at the heart of the universe . . . " Though a teacher, preacher, recognized ecumenical and interfaith leader, and former head of the Episcopal Church, he describes himself as a seeker still, "a person under construction." Griswold's opening words set the tone: "These pages are the fruit of my effort to gather up fragments from what I have learned along the way about myself, about love and longing, about God and God's ways with us. If you are drawn, as I have been, to follow lines of spiritual motion, perhaps the stories and reflections in these pages will be an encouragement along the way. You may discover revelatory moments in your own life you have overlooked because they seem so ordinary and mundane . . . " Though not a memoir, the book includes autobiographical material to give readers a sense of the writer as a friend and companion who shares their journey. It also illustrates and brings to life various teachings drawn from the Great Tradition as well as contemporary authors and spiritual guides.
Frank T. Griswold was elected to a 9-year term as the 25th Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church at the 1997 General Convention. Before becoming Presiding Bishop, he was Bishop of Chicago (1987–1997) and Bishop Coadjutor (1985–1987). He was ordained in 1963 and served three parishes in the Diocese of Pennsylvania before being elected bishop. Bishop Griswold and his wife, Phoebe Wetzel Griswold, have two adult daughters.
The reader of this book is left in no doubt about Griswold’s faithfulness and the great gifts that he has offered many in his ministry. Those looking for greater detail on the ins and outs of his leadership of the Episcopal Church will have to await his next book. The Revd Dr Jesse Zink , Church Times, 31 August 2018
