In contrast to his earlier work "Taken on Trust", this book shows another side to the man who was a hostage in Beirut for five years. Terry Waite's humour is revealed in this entertaining collection of true life travels with the Archbishop of Canterbury, Robert Runcie.
In contrast to his earlier bestseller TAKEN ON TRUST, this amusing new book shows another side to the man who was a hostage in Beirut for five years. Yet it retains his carefully written prose and powers of description. In Lagos Terry Waite had to stop an official motorcade in order to lean out of the Archbishop's car to be sick. In Scotland, Waite is recognised on the street by a passer by, but the Archbishop, dressed in open-neck shirt, is not. "Come and have a wee dram and bring your friend along too." Every story amuses, and in doing so the ancient Episcopalian Church of England is revealed in a new light. All too rarely does the Church laugh at itself. Here is a Christmas book for the very widest of audiences.
Terry Waite CBE was Adviser to the Archbishop of Canterbury in Anglican Communion Affairs from 1980 to 1992. He is a Member of the Royal Institute of International Affairs and the World Wildlife Council. He lives in Blackheath and Suffolk.
