An unflinching advocate for the powerless, he advised not only his fellow Episcopalians, but U.S. presidents and world leaders in a ministry that spanned the continents and earned him international love and respect.Sheryl A. Kujawa-Holbrook’s authorized biography, The Heart of a Pastor: A Life of Edmond Lee Browning, tells this remarkable man’s story through the Browning family’s own words, excerpts from historical documents, and the lively anecdotes and intimated recollections of those who know him and worked with him.
