Product Description

• Inspiration from a respected ground-breaker
• A role model tells her story—and that of the nation and the church

Hallelujah, Anyhow! is the long-awaited memoir of the Rt. Rev. Barbara Harris, the first woman bishop in the Anglican Communion. Edited by Kelly Brown Douglas, Dean of the Episcopal Divinity School at Union Seminary and an author and noted theologian in her own right, the book offers previously untold stories and glimpses into Bishop Harris' childhood and young adult years in her native Philadelphia, as well as her experiences as priest and bishop, both active and actively-retired.

A participant in Dr. Martin Luther King's march from Selma to Montgomery and crucifer at the ordination of the "Philadelphia 11," Bishop Harris has been eyewitness to national and church history. In the book, she reflects on her experiences with the "racism, sexism, and other 'isms' that pervade the life of the church," while still managing to say, "Hallelujah, Anyhow." Photographs accompany the text and round out this portrait of a pioneer, respected outside as well as inside the church for her fierce, outspoken, and life-long advocacy for peace and justice.

Audience: Those who know and appreciate the life and legacy of Bishop Harris, across denominations
