Summary
At fourteen, Richard Holloway left his working class Scottish home and travelled to an English monastery to be trained for the priesthood. By twenty-five, he was an ordained priest working in the slums of Glasgow. In 2000 he controversially resigned as Bishop of Edinburgh, having lost heart with the Church over its condemnation of homosexuality. In his years as a priest and, later, a public intellectual Richard was unafraid to confront the hard questions of morality, humanness, faith and doubt. He has been an inspiration to readers from within, and far beyond, the religions traditions
Summary
At the tender age of fourteen, Richard Holloway left his home town of Alexandria, north of Glasgow, and travelled hundreds of miles to be educated and trained for the priesthood at an English monastery. By the age of twenty-five he had been ordained and was working in the slums of Glasgow
