We join the Archbishop, Terry and a host of other colourful characters as they travel around the world. Along the way, the Archbishop meets the Pope in Ghana, has a photo call with koalas, and meets the crowd via an ‘archmobile’ in Canada. He and his staff experience extreme weather conditions as well as some rather unusual local customs, entertainment and souvenir gifts, and an array of unfamiliar food and drink.


Whether navigating huge crowds or temperamental sound systems or dealing with the fact that their party has arrived at the wrong place or on the wrong day, the Archbishop remains affable and good natured, even when, despite Terry’s and the team’s best efforts, events descend into – in Runcie’s own words – ‘a bit of a shambles’. Terry’s engaging narrative also sheds light on the history of Lambeth Palace and the way in which the role of Archbishop of Canterbury has evolved over the years.


Terry Waite CBE was Advisor to the Archbishop of Canterbury from 1980 to 1992.
