JOHN PRIDMORE was the Vicar of Hackney until his retirement in 2006. He is a regular columnist on the Church Times and previously lectured at Ridley Hall Cambridge.
'John Pridmore is an Anglican hero - and one of the few writers I know capable of making me a better person. His "failure" in Hackney reveals so much more of the Gospel than the management-obsessed church of which he rightly despairs.' Giles Fraser, author of Christianity With Attitude‘This book made me laugh out loud, but it also made me cry. It is about what it means to be faithful to Christ even if you are not successful, which is how life is for most of us…what hope I have for the Church of England belongs almost entirely to those places, rural and urban, where the conventional has pretty much broken down. It is the prerequisite for resurrection, for being broken open.’ Nick Holtam, Vicar of St Martin in the Fields 'Pridmore is simultaneously very funny and very serious, which has always been the mark of good theology, in my book. He is fabulously opinionated, strong in his dislikes, reassuringly off-message when it comes to contemporary ecclesiastical discourse. His book is a vital reminder of the best of the Anglican parochial tradition, and that still has something to say and give. We ignore him at our peril. We need this voice now. I recommend this book to anyone. It should certainly be compulsory reading for all who are training for the ministry.' Church Times‘This book is and will remain unrivalled for those who wish to understand what the job of an Anglican parish priest is like.’ CR Quarterly
