Bishop Robinson's 2003 elevation, in the Episcopal diocese of New Hampshire, ignited a worldwide firestorm in the Anglican Communion that has threatened schism.

"Touching and remarkable...an enlightening profile of a wonderful man, a lightning rod who has helped bring progress to the cause of equality." Highly Recommended. - Video Librarian
