258 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w photographs. "Throughout her life Lois Wilson has fought against convention, apathy and inequality. Born in Winnipeg in 1925, in 1965 she became one of the first women, married and with children, to receive ordination as a United Church minister. In 1980 she was elected moderator, making her the first woman in Canada to lead a mainstream denomination. She worked as an indefatigable campaigner for the 'social gospel', bringing the church to the wider community through innovative programs of public participation. (This) is a memoir of conscience, faith and love - be it Wilson's love for her family, her community, her lifelong friend Margaret Laurence, or for the oppressed and outcast around the globe. Never one to shy away from controversy, she challenges us with her views on feminism, homosexual ordination, disarmament, ecumenism, and with her call for a radical restructuring of the world economy. The Christian gospel demands an active, compassionate engagement with the world. Lois Wilson opens our eyes to what that really means." Light wrinkling at top of spine, shallow bump on top edge of rear board. Dust jacket has small corner crease on rear flap, minor wrinkling at top of spine.
