Once to Every Man

By William Sloane Coffin, Jr.
Atheneum, 1977
384 pp. $12.95

Fascinating memoirs at mid-career by the former Yale chaplain and now senior minister of the Riverside Church in New York. For Bill Coffin, ideas live through physical action, not meditation. He describes a combative childhood, army service in World War II, in the CIA in the early cold war, leadership in establishing the Peace Corps, civil disobedience against racial injustice and the Vietnam War.
