In his new book, "Love is the Way," Bishop Curryoffers an inspirational road map for living the way of love. Through the prism of his faith, ancestry, and personal journey, Love is the Way shows us how America came this far and, more importantly, how to go a whole lot further.
By sharing stories from his childhood as the descendent of slaves and the son of civil rights activists, through his ordination, and on to the historic changes and events that have transpired since his election as the first African-American presiding bishop and primate of the Episcopal Church, Bishop Curry illustrates why love is essential for addressing the seemingly insurmountable challenges facing the world today: poverty, racism, selfishness, deep ideological divisions, and competing claims to speak for God.
