This study focuses on the background, life and personality of Episcopal Bishop William Montgomery Brown to explain why he became a materialist and a communist. Born to poor but industrious parents near Orrville, Ohio in 1855, he pursued the ordained ministry in the Episcopal Church. Following the publication of his "The Church for Americans" in 1895, he was chosen as the successor to the Rt. Rev. Henry Niles Pierce, Bishop of Arkansas. He went on to write some works which caused friction within and outside of his diocese, leading him to move back to his native Ohio where, following a crisis of faith, he became a materialist and communist. Then, after publishing his "Communism and Christianism: Banish Gods from Skies and Capitalists from Earth!", he was tried for heresy and deposed in 1925. He spent the remaining years of his life advancing communism and advocating a symbolic, non-supernatural Christianity, up until his death in 1937.
