Dear Nicholas... was originally written in 1988 as a letter by the then Bishop of Liverpool Michael Henshall to his newly-ordained son. Revised and edited for today’s audience, it continues to be a source of encouragement and challenge to reflect upon for all in ministry today, whether newly-ordained or in service for many years.
Among the many books on ordained ministry, Dear Nicholas... stands out with its deeply personal and direct approach to the challenges and rewards of the ordained life.
This new edition, with a Foreword by Stephen Cottrell, Bishop of Chelmsford, includes an Epilogue by the original recipient of the letter, Nicholas Henshall, who is now Dean of Chelmsford. It is an ideal gift for all in ministry or ministerial training.
