5.0 out of 5 stars Informative, fair. sympathetic, 21 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Rowan Williams has long been one of my heroes; each chapter confirmed my view of this exceptional man. Goddard covers both public and more private aspects of Rowan's job as archbishop. He has been criticised for not being more decisive but putting value on an unlikely unity in the Anglican Communion - and here I felt the suffering and extraordinary patience with which Rowan absorbed the divisiveness of the more impatient of our members. Goddard sets the context of sensitivity clearly founded on a life of prayer and commitment to the Kingdom which gives me encouragement to keep hoping (at times even against hope or commonsense!) We have been extraordinarily well served by Rowan; Goddard has drawn what seems to be a true picture. I warmly recommended the book to our priest and local study group. ( I write as a CoE Reader of some 30+ years, one-time General Synod member, always grateful for inspiration coming from our leaders)
