This series of reminiscences recalls the people, personalities, events, challenges, disappointments, successes and controversies that shaped the life and ministry of Leonard Faulkner, formerly Bishop of Townsville and Archbishop of Adelaide. The book is not an autobiography but a personal anthology of memories, stories and images of a life spent seeking the will of God for himself and his people; and an invaluable and intimate story of what it means to be a bishop in our world

‘This memoir by the former Archbishop of Adelaide, recently turned ninety and living in retirement, deserves a hearty welcome.’ – Michael Costigan, Journal of the Australian Catholic Historical Society.
