Read Our Review of The Rejected Stone

Hardcover Description:

Lord knows, Reverend Al has had his person­al and very public ups and downs – but he’s come out bigger and better than ever. Though the host of MSNBC’s PoliticsNation is as fiery and outspoken as ever about the events and issues that matter most, he’s learned that the only way we can get right as a nation is by getting right from within.

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.

But the heart of this book is an intimate discus­sion of his own personal evolution from street activist, pulpit provocateur and civil rights leader to the man he is today – one hundred pounds slim­mer, and according to the New York Observer, “the most thoughtful voice on cable.”

No, the Reverend Al you met ten years ago isn’t the same man you’ll meet today. And he has a simple promise. We can transform this nation and we can all lead better lives if we’re willing to transform our hearts and transform our minds.
