Product Description

Review

'We are very fortunate indeed to have this wonderful introduction to such a great and joyful friend of God.’ Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury ‘My hope is that this book will reveal more of Roland’s spirituality and insights to a much wider audience.’ Keith Patrick Cardinal O’Brien, Archbishop of St Andrews and Edinburgh ‘This book is a treasure … for all who would like to have their life and faith illuminated by the wisdom and hilarity of Roland Walls.’ Very Rev. Dr John Miller, Castlemilk East Parish Church ‘Roland Walls is one of the two or three strongest Christian influences on me. He opened my eyes.’ Very Rev. Professor Iain R. Torrance, President, Princeton Theological Seminary, New Jersey ‘This book deserves to become a classic of its kind.’ The Rt Rev. Brian Smith, Bishop of Edinburgh 'The book offers an impression of a man who thinks while he talks. While Walls is not performing an academic act, nevertheless his thoughts, convictions, questions, doubts, hope, humour, compassion, irony, almost tumble out of the pages, yet in an orderly, pure manner ... And there is much more. Hence the short conclusion must be: go and buy!' Coracle (various)

Format: Paperback
I once attended a retreat with Roland Walls - in North Yorkshire during the 1970s when he was still a (nominal) anglican. It was a lot like talking to God through a living person, who added an occasional witty digression, but was clearly at ease with the eternal one. Indeed He seemed to be Roland's closest friend. They shared jokes together that I only sometimes understood.

Saddly this book is the only lasting memorial to Roland we will now ever have, but it is worthy of the task. It does convey something of the man.

Yes, he would probably have accepted the biography of someone who wished to be as comprehensive in his beliefs and yet not tread on the toes of someone with whom he differed in matters of faith and belief.

Well worth reading. 17 Oct. 2011
By James the less - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
We knew Rolland Walls personally from 1973 on. We first met him when he taught for YWAM (Youth With a Mission) in Scotland. This book is a great reflection of the man and his views on church life. He was a professor and a Canon in the Church of England. He founded a small monastery where folks travelled from all over to glean from his wealth of wisdom. The book allows you to see the richness of his thinking, that is both deep and penetrating. Rolland can mix it up with the intellectuals and challenges many assumptions. Latterly he sensed the Lord call him to get involved with the Catholic church, which he did by becoming a priest (This was radical and caused some mutterings.) Hence the title 'Mole under the fence', and from that position he brought a good influence to them..
