Leaving Alexandria by Richard Holloway

Donated by Charles Handy, who says...

It is the story of a courageous man, told by himself. He was a priest who reached the pinnacle of his profession, only to realise that he no longer believed in what he professed to believe. He then had the courage to say so and to resign his exalted position. Would that we were all so honest with ourselves.

  1. This is a gripping book about faith, about what it is and is not. A leading figure in British Church life tells the story of his life and how he both loved the Church and lost a part of his faith. I’m a priest myself and this book changed me.
