Summary
"In this, his first book in over a decade, Reverend Al will take you behind the scenes of some unexpected places--from officiating Michael Jackson's funeral, hanging out with Jay-Z and President Barack Obama at the White House, to taking charge of the Trayvon Martin case. And he will discuss how he came to his unexpected conclusions in such areas as immigration, gay rights, religion, and the family"--Dust jacket flap
