Becoming Reverend: A Diary [9781781400104]

(1 review) Write a Review

Meet Woody. Former journalist. Die-hard Oasis fan. High energy. Low sperm count. Training to be a vicar. Obviously. Matt Woodcock's frank, funny real-life diaries reveal what it was like for him to train as a vicar while struggling against all odds to become a father. In them he lays bare his joys and struggles as he attempts to reconcile his calling as a vicar with his life as a party-loving journalist, footie-freak and incorrigible extrovert. Becoming Reverend is a compelling and original account of how faith can work in the midst of a messy life, combining family, fertility, faith and friendship with the story of a divine - but unlikely - calling.


AUTHOR: 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.

    An inspiring read.

    Posted by Gavin Chapman on 12th Apr 2017

    A very readable account about the author's calling to ministry and of his response and experience, as an ordinary bloke, at a training college. Matt tells us about his personal life during this time including IVF treatment for his wife, relationships with his family and friends and, of course, with God.
    In the form of diary entries, Matt lays his thoughts, and especially his feelings, bare for all to share. This gave me hope and frustration about the future of the Anglican Church and left me praying for the success of Matt's ministry and Matt's own development.
