Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Woodbine Willie: An Unsung Hero of World War One (Paperback)
a well written stimulating account of the life of a radical and influential Christian minister who reached millions outside the doors of the Church in the trenches as a chaplain and after World War 1 as a wide ranging travelling speaker ..His message of the reality of the living Christ as one who suffered and died for us all regardless of our culture of class made a huge impact and is the same today .His insights on the senseless of war and means to bring reconciliation and peace are still much needed today.
Bob Holman has researched the book very thoroughly including talking to relatives and people who knew him and the book also forms a fine introduction Stoddert Kennedys writing -still very much worth reading today .
