Overview

What is happening in the Episcopal Church today? Even the venerable Bishops appear willing to abandon the age-old standards of the Scriptures in favor of modern views.

Churches are supposed to be relatively safe places. Priests and ministers are supposed to be Godly, or holy--or at least trying to be. Guided as they are by the Word of God, things should be directed and protected by people who are led by their principles rather than their politics.

While the Episcopal Church has been in the news lately for her stand on the issue of openly homosexual Bishops, there is another crisis bubbling below the surface. When addressed openly, it brings out the same fits of rage as the "sexual preference" issue.

Fr. McDowell-Fleming has lived through the storm. In this book, he shows how the destructive power of "letting the lightning out of the bottle" has already torn apart one diocese. Which one will be next?
