    DescriptionTaken together, the sermons collected here record a priestly life spent in pursuit of the simplest yet most profound truths of Christianity. They underscore Father Mead's insistence on returning again and again, in times of war and of peace, of plenty and of want, to the proper answer to the question Jesus once put to his disciples: "Who do men say that I am?" Father Mead understands that the message and mission of the crucified and risen Lord Jesus is in fact the most radical story in human history-a story at once so fundamental and overwhelming that it requires no embroidery and little elaboration. The core is sufficient, for the core is Christ, and Christ is everything. -Jon Meacham Pulitzer Prize-winning author

    Andrew Craig Mead was ordained an Episcopal priest in 1971 and was an assistant parish priest in England, Connecticut and Boston. From 1978 he was a parish rector-in Rosemont, Pennsylvania, for seven years; in Boston for eleven years; and from 1996 to 2014, when he retired, at Saint Thomas Church Fifth Avenue in New York City. After a public school education, he received his B.A. from DePauw University in Indiana, his B.D. (M.Div.) from Yale University Divinity School, and his M.Litt. from Oxford University in England. He and his wife, Nancy, have a daughter, Emma; a son, Matthew, who is also an Episcopal priest and rector; and four grandchildren.
