Interview with Canon Andrew White in Canada

Excellent interview with Canon Andrew White on talking about Biblical references to Iraq (there are lots) and the current situation in Iraq both from a political and religious viewpoint.

How many people were able to count Yasser Arafat as a close personal friend, someone who got an invite to a five-year-old’s birthday party? How many churches have angels and the wheels within wheels as described by Ezekiel present?

Canon Andrew White is the Anglican priest of St George’s in Baghdad and a Middle East Peacemaker.

Last week he was awarded the highly prestigious First Freedom Award.

Books mentioned:

Faith Under Fire has been shortlisted as the Christian Book of 2012. It is open to vote on-line for your favourite book, but somewhat dumb you have to vote for a childrens book too even though you may have no views. Also badly designed website, link does not go direct to voting form.

    Although I think he would loathe to even think of it, maybe Canon White should be considered as a successor to Rowan Williams? To paraphrase the Sermon on the Mount this man would speak with authority in the way that others could not. Even his MS would be a witness, a powerful sign that God’s saints know the reality of illness and suffering.
