A Prophet in the Congregation

I have been happy to recommend to all and sundry a new book by an Incarnation parishioner and Vestry member. Gretchen Morgenson’s Reckless Endangerment provides many insights into the current financial crisis. Written with Josh Rosner, it is also an exciting read. The book has recently topped the business bestseller charts in the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal.

I have also often felt that while Gretchen’s journalism deals with the most secular of topics–money and greed, it also conveys a high moral purpose. I would say that she is in the tradition of the biblical prophets. To say that she is on a mission is to use the right word. —J. Douglas Ousley
