The remarkable story of Canon Andrew White, a man of great charm and energy and one of the world's most trusted mediators and reconcilers.


Combined in a single volume for the first time, The Vicar of Baghdad and My Journey So Far tell the story of how Andrew overcame a childhood beset by illness to become an anaesthetist and then a vicar in the Church of England. As vicar of St George's Baghdad, the only Anglican church in Iraq, he has led a team providing food, healthcare, and education on a major scale and often in dire circumstances. He has had a considerable role in the work of reconciliation, both between Christian and Jew and between Shi'ite and Sunni Muslim. Andrew is widely recognised to be one of a handful of people trusted by virtually every side in the complex Middle East. Despite dealing with the pain from multiple sclerosis and facing extreme personal danger, he has nevertheless been able to mediate between opposing extremes. Political and military solutions are constantly put forward, and often fail. Andrew offers a different approach, speaking as a man of faith to men of faith. He is trusted by those who trust very few.

PRODUCT DETAIL

Canon Andrew White

Canon Andrew White is something of a legend: a man of great charm and energy, whose personal suffering has not deflected him from his role as one of the world's most trusted mediators and reconcilers.As a child and young man growing up in London Andrew was frequently ill. He set his heart on working in the field of anaesthetics, an ambition he achieved, but found himself called into Anglican ministry. He has since had a considerable role in the work of reconciliation, both between Christian and Jew and between Shi'ite and Sunni Muslim. As Vicar of St George's Baghdad, the only Anglican church in Iraq, he lead a team providing food, health care, and education on a major scale and often in dire circumstances.Despite the pain from multiple sclerosis, he is frequently involved in hostage negotiations, and played a key role in ending the siege at the Church of the Nativity in Jerusalem. His personal friendships have included Yasser Arafat and Pope John Paul II. He has been kidnapped, and lives in constant danger. He is trusted by those who trust very few.
