As Archbishop of York, John Habgood's ability to mediate and solve what seemed to be impossible, both in the Church and in wider society, is legendary. His formidable intellect and shy manner, however, could make him seem a distant, enigmatic figure. This biography, written at Lord Habgood's request and with his full cooperation while alive, is warm, witty and affectionate. Nevertheless, as its title implies, it is a truthful portrayal of the man he was - guileless, flawed, and just. Prior to becoming Archbishop of York, John Habgood had served for ten years as Bishop of Durham. With his legendary ability to mediate and solve what seemed impossible problems in or beyond the Church, his formidable intellect and shy manner could make him seem a distant, enigmatic figure. He asked David Wilbourne, who was Assistant Bishop of Llandaff from 2009 to 2017 and had previously worked as chaplain to two Archbishops of York (the other was David Hope) to write the biography. Lord Habgood gave his full cooperation while alive. The biography is warm, witty and affectionate. Nonetheless, as its title implies, it is a truthful portrayal of the man he was - guileless, flawed, just. The authorized biography of John Habgood by one of the people who knew him best. The book is with hard-back and is in 23 chapters. There is a generous selection of colour and black-and-white photographs in the centre, In 223p.
