At head of title: The Rita and William H. Bell Professorship in Anglican and Ecumenical Studies
"[By] The Most Reverend Edmond L. Browning, Presiding Bishop, The Episcopal Church".
"Public Lecture, The University of Tulsa, April 25, 1993".
"Compassion feels dangerous to the powerful. If I begin to truly feel your pain, I run the risk of having to change. I may have to stop doring something I'm doing now. Or start doing something I'm not. I may have to give over some of my power. Compassion is inconvenient. .... Compassion prevents us from objectifying other people, the necessary first step towards killing them with whatever death we do that, the death of the body or the death of the soul."
