Not Helpful: Tales from a Truth Teller

“Bishop George Browning’s new book, Not Helpful: Tales from a Truth Teller uses Browning’s own story of growing up and growing into his faith…It speaks of a faith that is involved and engaged and is active…that comes with a cost, that is not confined to Sunday liturgies or church buildings.
