Anecdotes about travelling with Robert Runcie, Archbishop of Canterbury. Often the stories are rather too thin on content, but at their best, they are laugh-aloud funny. Worth reading just for the exchange of gifts with the White House, and the hilarious use of an "archmobile" on a visit to Canada. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0007106327, Hardcover)

In contrast to his earlier bestseller "Taken on Trust", this amusing 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. For instance, whilst in Scotland, Waite was recognized on the street by a passer by, but the Archbishop, dressed in open-neck shirt, was 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.
