"Ted Karpf is an international journeyman of hope. Acts of Forgiveness: Faith Journeys of a Gay Priest offers a rare glimpse into the life of a man who in the face of death, betrayal, and loss has been given every reason to abandon the God who loves him and yet he pilgrimages onwards. More than a memoir, Ted's testament to the power of grace shows how abiding faith neither leaves nor abandons God but finds hope in the unavoidable tensions of the life we all share."--The Reverend Joshua Case, Associate Rector, Christ Church, Charlotte, North Carolina; "Karpf promises to 'turn the dross of my life into gold, ' and keeps that promise with vulnerability, insight, and compassion for himself and others. He meticulously spins out the tale of his life, giving us a healthy reminder at every turn that God is to be found in the most unlikely of places. It is clear, in this reflection on his life, that he has indeed learned that skill and executes the task of seeing and hearing the world with precision, insight, and clarity."--The Right Reverend Gene V. Robinson, former Bishop of New Hampshire; "Ted Karpf's life journey embodies Michelangelo's working vision: 'I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.' That symbolizes the splendid arc of Karpf's life--an evolution from unformed possibility, through great trials, to a loving, forgiving, contributing member of humanity. Karpf's implicit message of hope is urgently needed in our wayward era. Inspirational autobiography at its best."--Barbara Montgomery Dossey, PhD, RN, FAAN, author of Holistic Nursing and Larry Dossey, MD, author of One Mind: How Our Individual Mind Is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why It Matters; "Artfully told narratives that challenge the reader and--at the same time--call us into companionship with the author are infrequently encountered, treasured widows into the soul. Acts of Forgiveness is exactly such a treasure. It reminds us all that forgiveness is a way of life, which ultimately calls each of us to become seekers of justice for all people."--Joel T. Katz, MD, MACP, and Marshall A. Wolf, MD, distinguished chair in medical education, Harvard Medical School
