Bishop Quintin Moore has had a remarkable journey — from a Pentecostal upbringing in the plains of Kansas to friendship with Pope Francis and visits to the Vatican. The story he tells in Ancient Future Bishop is remarkable, but the truly remarkable thing about Bishop Moore is how he exemplifies the hope for real unity in the Body of Christ.
-Brian Zahnd, Pastor of Word of Life Church in St. Joseph, Missouri; author of Postcards From Babylon
“It is inspiring, inviting, encouraging, and challenging. But above all, it is a journey in experiencing that Jesus said to His disciples in John 15:14, ‘You are My friends!'”
-Doug Beacham, Bishop of the International Pentecostal Holiness Church
God called shepherds, farmers, fishermen, a tax collector, a sycamore fig farmer — why not a dry-waller hailing from Severy, Kansas? Ancient Future Bishop opens up the heart of one man’s journey of friendship and faith. Quintin, in raw honesty, shares his heart, his struggles, and the amazing Grace of God that has shaped his life; steered his ministry; and inspired his vision for the unity of faith in Jesus Christ.
-Dr. Peter Balaban
Archbishop Moore reveals his growing understanding of how this unity that our Savior prayed for the night of His betrayal is a central key for a broken and desperate world being able to truly believe the Good News that God sent His Son for healing and redemption from its orphaned state. I cannot recommend this book too highly. It will uncover things in you that you didn’t realize were there because of the gift of friendships.
-Wayne Boosahda, Co-Founding Bishop of the Communion of Evangelical Episcopal Churches and Archbishop for the CEEC Society of St. Patrick & St. Aidan and the Diocese of St. Patrick
“With his characteristic humility and generosity, this story of faith, welcome, grief, and hope is a beautiful testimony of what unity in diversity means for us all. I loved this book.”
-Sarah Bessey, author of “Miracles and Other Reasonable Things” and “Jesus Feminist”
“How do you know Pope Francis?” Quintin Moore gets asked this question quite frequently, and he wonders the same thing sometimes. Long before he became friends with Father Francis, he was just a Pentecostal country kid growing up among the wheat fields of Severy, Kansas. The stepping-stones from Severy to Rome were a series of sacred friendships that led Moore out of the fear-based legalism of his childhood faith into a transformative experience of God’s love and grace.
