The true story of an Episcopal priest (St. Bernard's Church and St John on the Mountain) whose abiding faith enabled him to confront the conflicting temperaments evident in the mid-20th century. His ministry affirmed the sacredness of each person, of all races, of all genders, of the poor and of the Earth itself. His pastoral strategy was one of reconciliation. from a place he called "the perilous middle". At life's end there was a final personal reconciliation when William Nieman, Jr. accepted deteriorating health and early onset Alzheimer's as his "Jerusalem".
