The author of Seeing the Unseen: Beyond Prejudices, Paradigms and Party Lines, Mark Beckwith is a co-founder of Bishops United Against Gun Violence, and a leader in Braver Angels, a national movement to depolarize America. He is passionate about helping people move beyyond the confines of their political and religious silos in order to find common ground. He is a graduate of Amherst College and Yale Divinity School. A retired bishop in the Episcopal Church (Diocese of Newark, NJ), he is an avid hiker, tennis player and competitive swimmer. He lives in Jaffrey, New Hampshire. He blogs weekly on markbeckwith.net

He was consecrated as the tenth Bishop of Newark on January 27, 2007, by Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori.

Beckwith has appeared in two PBS specials with Jon Meacham, God in New York (2010) and Christians, Muslims, and Jews: Bridging the Divide (2011).

He has also been a featured guest in several interviews and panel discussions on MSNBC’s Morning Joe show.

From 2017-2019, Beckwith co-hosted a television talk show series on NJ PBS titled A Matter of Faith with a Bishop, an Imam and a Rabbi. The show premiered on April 12, 2017 and was hosted by Bishop Mark Beckwith, Imam W. Deen Shariff and Rabbi Matthew Gewirtz, who lead conversations with special invited guests and discussed “headlining news through the lens of faith.” Beckwith’s last day as Bishop was September 22, 2018, when his successor Carlye J.
