The Bishop and I

The Bishop and I

Inspired by meeting bishops' spouses from around the globe, Eileen Carey wanted to 'take the lid off' and allow them to tell their own story. The result is a series of fascinating profiles of some remarkable people whose skills, commitment and sheer hard work form the backbone of the Anglican Communion. Their contribution to their spouses' work is of enormous importance but often goes unacknowledged.

This book gives an insight into the lives of those who stand alongside their partners in their work of Christian ministry, giving freely of their time and love, sometimes at great personal cost. In an honest and at times very moving introduction Eileen Carey also describes her own experience as the wife of a bishop and archbishop.
