Out of the Ashes Came Hope: The Monsignor William J. Linder Story and the Rise of New Community Corporation.
William J. Linder retired from the priesthood in Newark, New Jersey, in 2012 after serving residents there for over 50 years. Gilda Rogers' crisp and reflective storytelling is woven into this sociological tale of urban blight, resurrected by the vision and courage of NCC founder, Father Linder, after the 1967 Newark Riots. Considering race has finally moved to the forefront of discussion, Out of the Ashes Came Hope, is a timely story laced with mayhem, delight and what is possible when people have the courage to believe and one man's love for God's people. Father Linder's arrival at the all-Black parish, Queen of Angels, in 1963, will remind you of Sidney Poitier's 1963 Oscar winning role as Homer Smith in Lilies of the Field.
