Overview
-

In this entertaining autobiography, the Rev. Patrick Forbes looks back at an exceptionally varied ministry in the Church of England—from being the idiot curate to parish priest, to religious programmes producer, to a BBC Radio 2's "Pause For Thought” contributor, to co-founder of the Holy Fools UK, all while asking challenging questions about the future direction of the church. Sometimes known as "Partick Frobes, the well-known clerical error”, Forbes often finds and points out the humour and not-so-funny "elephants in the room”, after his 55 years in the church. He may be the only ordained minister in the Church of England to have been blessed by an Archbishop of Canterbury as the front end of a pantomime horse.
