Abstract:

From childhood in a small Virginia town to adulthood in the prestigious academic world, Dr. Proctor's odyssey is more than the chronicle of one man's search for moral standards. It is a powerful call for developing personal and community moral consciousness that is both Christian and relevant in a society of complex choices. For Proctor, developing moral consciousness is a never ending process of discovery, remolding, and revision. Beginning with the ways in which loving parents helped him discover and shape his personhood, Proctor takes you on an intimate journey through his life: his introduction to the life of the mind; college and seminary days when he became painfully aware that freedom meant making difficult choices on his own; his years as an educator and pastor which brought an ever-widening view of moral consciousness in community, national, and world affairs. Proctor discusses the role of the family in developing moral standards: the importance of believing in a world of purpose; conscience and religion; private and public morals; creating genuine community; justice and fairness; plus other aspects of moral integrity. My Moral Odyssey offers inspiring guidance for revitalizing the decaying moral fabric of a society torn apart by conflicting values. -from book blurb.
