Ken Untener (1937-2004), bishop of the diocese of Saginaw for 24 years, was a true pastor both a practical theologian and a prophet who, like the prophets of the Old Testament, sought to call his church back to its roots. A prolific and inspired author and speaker, his writings and talks spanned a wide variety of topics and concerns.

This book is the first compilation of a large selection of his briefer writings. It is organized into six topics: Vision and Creative Imagination, Liturgy and the Word, Ministry of Mercy, Consistent Ethic of Life, Ministry of Prophet, and The Wider Church). Each topic is introduced by Elizabeth Picken, CJ, of Bishop Ken's "Theology Squad."

This eagerly awaited book will appeal to anyone interested in the church's internal concerns and in how the church relates to issues concerning the wider world. It will be of particular interest to the many admirers of Bishop Untener, and will serve as a valuable reference for liturgists, preachers, pastors, students, and teachers of any of the topics addressed in the writings. 150134 Bishop Ken Untener, Ken Untener
