About "My Journey So Far"
Andrew White is something of a legend: a man of great charm and energy, whose personal suffering has not deflected him from his important ministry of reconciliation. Andrew grew up in London, the son of strongly religious parents: by the age of five he could repeat the five points of Calvinism. As a child and young man he was frequently ill, but his considerable intelligence meant that his studies did not suffer. He set his heart on becoming an anesthetist, an ambition he achieved, only to be redirected by God to Anglican ministry. Since ordination he has had a considerable role in the work of reconciliation, both between Christian and Jew and between Shi'ite and Sunni Muslim. Often in danger, and always in pain, he has nevertheless been able to mediate between opposing extremes. A man of God, he is trusted by those who trust very few.

EXCELLENT BOOK; I have read it, I keep buying extra copies and giving them to friends. This man of God is such a loveable, challenging character and he is travelling the world to make more people aware of the help needed for the displaced people of Iraq. I have read all his books, I follow him on Facebook. I give thanks to God for this remarkable man - with a medical background - a theologian - and a man who suffers from a chronic illness.
This fascinating book takes you inside the unusual life of Canon Andrew White. In his own words, he describes his childhood devouring of books on medicine and theology at an age where most boys are just interested in playing games. He goes on to describe his background in Pentecostal circles, his love for High Anglican Liturgy, his medical studies as well as his interest and studies of Haredi Orthodox Judaism. He shares candidly about his health struggles, while also sharing about dramatic miracles he has experienced during his ministry in Baghdad. Andrew has learned to love people whom many would consider enemies of Jews and Christians. He has gained their respect and through their trust helps bring peace in the hotspots of the Middle East. The book is short and leaves one wanting more details of Andrew's story - which are covered in his other books. All in all, 'My Journey So Far' is a very remarkable and interesting story which challenges us to love our enemies and build bridges to those whom we do not understand.
