Described by Cornel West as "a towering public intellectual and the leading universalist philosopher of his generation," Forrest Church was one of the preeminent liberal theologians of our time. His final gift, The Cathedral of the World, draws from the entire span of Church's life's work to leave behind a clear statement of his universalist theology and liberal faith. Giving new voice to the power of liberal religion, Church invites all seekers to enter the Cathedral of the World, home to many windows but only one Light.

Review:

"Church is a towering public intellectual and the leading universalist philosopher of his generation. This last testament to his prophetic thought and witness is a gift of faith, hope, and love to us all!" --Cornel West, author of Race Matters

"An essential read for anyone interested in liberal religion." --Publishers Weekly

"A complete expression of [Church's] liberal theology."
--William Grimes, New York Times

"The Cathedral of the World sums up in a dramatic and powerful way the work of one of America's most gifted clergymen. Forrest Church has lived his theology as well as proclaimed it. Ours is a better world because he did."
--Bishop John Shelby Spong, author of Jesus for the Non-Religious

"Church challenges us to see the light shining through the many windows of the cathedral of the world and to be receptive to the mysteries which abound in our lives . . . [A] fine compilation."
--Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice

"[Church] reminds us in so many words how lucky he and we are to be in the hands of a lovingly liberal God . . . This [book] feels like a swinging wide open of the doors of a dusty house and a letting in of sunshine and fresh air."
--Booklist
