Description
A Nobel Prize winner, a former Governor General of Canada, and an Archbishop of Canterbury join together, with over 70 writers from around the world, in this memoir for Archbishop Michael Peers, Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada from 1986 to 2004.
This affectionate and often amusing tribute from friends, family, and colleagues comes from a grateful church to one of its most celebrated leaders.
The historic Apology to First Nations peoples; dancing in Waterloo with Canadian Lutherans; preaching in Moscow (in Russian) to the Soviet Union; putting his passport into a washing machine in England—this memoir records the high moments and the low.
Those who observed the young prodigy as a child, those who worked with him on the Prairies and in Toronto, and fellow primates from across the Anglican Communion, come together to assemble a remarkable testimony to an extraordinary leader.
 
“Michael Geoffrey Peers has loved and served our church, and with such distinction and devotion, as to render him as one of the most influential figures in its history” (from the Foreword)
—Fred J. Hiltz, Primate, Anglican Church of Canada
