A former newspaper journalist, Matt Woodcock is now a Church of England minister in Hull. He puts on a sell-out beer festival in his church every year and walks real camels down Hull's main shopping street at Christmas. This is his first book.
`Refreshingly honest, frequently hilarious and genuinely moving, Becoming Reverend is a surprising and inspiring read. Even if you think church isn't for you - in fact, especially if you think that - this book probably is.' -- The Revd Kate Bottley 'Matt Woodcock's diary entries chart his own adventures through training with verve, charm, and excoriating honesty... Reading about his struggles between maintaining his identity while developing deeper insights into his place within the Kingdom of God may enlighten us all.' -- Jennie Hogan * Church Times *
