' ... essential reading for those exploring their vocation to ordained ministry.' -- Stephen Ferns 'This is a little book about ordination that is full of glistening little gems of insight, wisdom and humour. (...) Richard Giles would challenge us gently, nudge us and cajole us. He is a visionary trying to communicate a vision of a different kind of church life than that which many of us have known. It is a vision worth trying to catch and his is a voice worth listening to. A good book for an ordained person to mull over on retreat. Or for a lay person to mull over in order to try to understand why ordained people behave the way they do. Or for anyone considering ordination. Sprinkled with gold dust. Highly recommended.' -- Kelvin Holdsworth
