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.
"Humorous, eloquent, righteously indignant, and ruefully wise, this book is suffused with Coffin's special tone: a mix of high moral expectation and love of humanity in all its incompletions and imperfections. It's excellent that he, who inspired so many of the young in the Civil Rights Movement and related causes in the last century, should begin a new century with a new address to the young." - Richard H. Brodhead, President, Duke University "Not only a fiery preacher and a social prophet, Bill Coffin is also a wise observer of life, and as he has grown older his wisdom and counsel - like a fine wine - have become ever more valuable. These letters can and should be placed in the hands of anyone - young or old - who has ever entertained doubts. And that means all of us." - Harvey Cox, author of When Jesus Came to Harvard"
