Customer Review

on 9 March 2012
This has to rate as the most wonderful book I have ever read. It describes so poignantly and sensitively the challenges of being a priest in the Anglican Church. Mr Holloway does not pull his punches either about himself or institutions.

After I finished reading the book these are the one word statements about what I discerned about Mr Holloway's journey:

Turbulence. Uncertainty. Confusion. Idealism. To support and encourage. To draw alongside. Relationships. Reaching out. Sensitivity. Alienation. Intelligence. Wit. Role or not of religion. Restlessness. Fame. Joy. Enthusiasm. Fully human. Deeply self aware. Coping with hostility. Spending time with the dispossessed, the unloved and unwanted. Action focused not just cerebral. Active exploration of solutions for faith-based problems such as losing one's faith.

Apolgies to those who thought I would only use one word and not several....

Do buy it. It is a joy but it will also leave you in tears for the indeserved aggression meted out on Mr Holloway by priests who should know better. This includes Bishops and especially those of evangelical persuasion.
