For half a century, William Sloane Coffin stood as a force for progressive religion in America and in the world. Both a tribute to his remarkable life and a prophetic call to the nation, William Sloane Coffin: An American Prophet contains the wisdom of a courageous man who carried on a lover's quarrel with America. With powerful messages on terrorism, faith, politics, and hope--engagingly delivered as only William Sloane Coffin can--the documentary concludes with a testimony to his legacy of justice and love, given by his friends: Arthur Miller, James Carroll, Susannah Heschel, and Robert and Sally Benton.

William Sloane Coffin served as chaplain of Yale University and Williams College, was senior minister of Riverside Church, and is President Emeritus of SANE/FREEZE: Campaign for Global Security. He became famous while at Yale in the 1960s for his opposition to the Vietnam War. He was jailed as a civil rights Freedom Rider, indicted by the U.S. government in the Benjamin Spock conspiracy trial, and has been immortalized as Rev. Sloan in the Doonesbury comic strip. Both Union Theological Seminary in New York and Yale University have established scholarships in his honor. Included in his works are Credo and A Passion for the Possible, both available from WJK.
