J. Philip Wogaman is the pastor of President and Mrs. Clinton's church in Washington, D.C. He is also a member of the president's three-person inner circle of spiritual advisers in the aftermath of Clinton's admission of an "inappropriate" relationship with a former White House intern. In this book Wogaman explores the most profound issues in the crisis that has gripped the country since January 1998 - including sexual indiscretion, truth-telling, and the role of the media - and the implications of this crisis for the future of our nation.
As one of the foremost ethicists of his generation, he has wrestled with the relationship between religious faith and the great issues of the day for more than 30 years. He has written this book as a pastor, teacher, and concerned citizen because, he says, the nation is at a critical moral juncture in its history.
