About the author:
Born in 1942 in rural Kansas, Chuck Fager had a conservative Catholic childhood on military bases, then won medals in college ROTC. He left school in 1964 to join the civil rights movement, on the front lines in Selma, Alabama. As the Vietnam War escalated in 1965, Chuck was drawn by the example of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., away from the war and to an active challenge to U.S. militarism. In the midst of this shift, he encountered Quakers, and was powerfully impressed by this small, often controversial religious community, which for more than 300 years had witnessed for peace, and questioning most religious orthodoxies. From this new spiritual base, Chuck has had a long and colorful career as a writer and an activist.

A Religious Autobiography

Authored by Chuck Fager

This book describes Chuck Fager's transition from a conservative Catholic, pro-military youth to an active peace witness and a lengthy period of "spiritual formation" among progressive Quakers. All this happened in a time of war, sharp social upheaval and personal turmoil. The account culminates in a special religious coming of age in the mid-1970s, which in turn marked the opening of another period of intertwined personal and broader history, in a continuing time of tumult and change.
The result is both a compelling story of our time, and the narrative of a unique personal quest for meaning, transcendence, and a useful life.
