Not one to "get involved in any controversy," Will Campbell translates his gift for the written word into evocative speeches and sermons. Will"s pacing, inflection and style are distinctly southern, but uniquely his own. Like his books, Campbell's speeches reflect his yearning for reconciliation and community. Powerful
themes dealing with racial conflict, the evil of institutions and Christian responsibility are all told in the same down-home manner of a simple man with an Ivy league education looking to bring the first-century Christian church to the world of today. Every once in a while, he might pick up a guitar and sing about such things.
