Retired bishop brings personal and Anglican history to Rapid City, South Dakota

Posted by Kendall Harmon

Bishop Frank Gray is down to just one remaining copy of "For Thou Art With Me: Interned in the Philippines," the self-published memoir that chronicles his family's three years in a Japanese concentration camp in the Philippines during World War II.
