Berkeley Arts and Letters says…

Cecil Williams is many things—a civil rights activist who marched on Selma; a philanthropist who has helped raise millions for the poor; a pastor who has devoted his life to spreading the message of God. But he is perhaps best known as the face of San Francisco’s famed Glide church, where for the past fifty years he has sparked widespread and revolutionary change for a largely disenfranchised community—and inspired others throughout the country and the world to do the same. In Beyond the Possible, Reverend Williams, along with his wife and Glide founding president Janice Mirikitani, tells the story of how he transformed a small parish set in “the last circle of Hell” into a groundbreaking community devoted to radical social change.
