It's inspiring to read of all that lead this man to such a position, although it's obvious that
position is not something he strives for. He's a people's man with his feet on the ground
and his heart beating for his Lord. This book explains what formed him and equipped him.
He is prepared to take great risks and seems to me, pretty unconventional, which I like.
His emphasis is on listening to the other side and drawing conflicting parties together. I also
learned quite a bit about Anglicanism (not being one myself) and came to realise just how
much the Anglican church seeks to do for the good of society.
The book shows how Archbishop Justin Welby is prepared to invest himself in efforts
towards reconciliation, how he has personally risked his life abroad, smuggled bibles and
worked hand in hand with Andrew White in Baghdad.
This is a quality man and with him at the helm I have great expectations for Britain and the Church.
