“It is rare to read a walk through someone’s life as their heart and conscience develops. Yet that is exactly what this book is. It’s not a memoir or autobiography; there is no overarching narrative. Instead, it is a series of meditations on what was on Rob’s mind and in his heart at various moments, some reacting to events of his day or ‘the day’ and others the result of long-ruminated-on questions.”
—Introduction by Chelsea Clinton
As I read The Pulpit and the Paper, I kept wondering, “How did Rob Lee write so much, and so well, and so insightfully, at such a young age?” I especially value this collection right now—when many of us are deeply disappointed in so many of the well-known religious leaders of the older generation. Thank God for Rob Lee, a preacher who doesn’t just preach the good news, but also makes news with his penetrating and heartfelt message of justice, joy, and peace.

I try to listen to every sermon Rev. Rob Lee preaches, and I try to read everything he writes. Now that just got easier. This book is like a “Best Hits” album of one of America’s great prophetic voices. As a descendent of General Robert E. Lee, Rob’s life is helping heal the wounds of history. His message is a balm to the festering, untreated wound of American racism and hatred.
