Summary

With this long-awaited memoir, Richard Holloway gives a wise, poetic and fiercely honest account of his life. In his years as a priest Richard touched many lives, but behind his confident public face lay a troubled mind. In 2000 he controversially resigned as Bishop of Edinburgh, over the Church's condemnation of homosexuality.
