Marriage Mitres And Being Myself
Full Product Description
Bishop’s spouses discuss their lives openly; many for the first time. There are glimpses of struggles with bureaucracy, with feelings of powerlessness in the face of major upheavals, and of frustration at the difficulties of balancing duty, marriage and time to be yourself. Yet the overall impression is of a richness of life and opportunity, a sense of privilege and of grace to surmount challenges none of the spouses imagined or sought.
Marriage, Mitres and Being Myself is a book with a relevance far beyond the small group of people whose lives it explores; it is a story of husbands and wives facing challenges together, even when ‘together’ means being apart for a while; and it is told with gratitude when it would be easy to slip into an attitude of ‘us against them’.
Set against the backdrop of the diverse worldwide Anglican Communion, the stories told here are ultimately those of the partnership of marriage, proving through its tensions and trials the reality of love.
Marriage Mitres And Being Myself by Jane Williams was published by SPCK in April 2008 and is our 54479th best seller. The ISBN for Marriage Mitres And Being Myself is 9780281060184.

Marriage, Mitres and Being MyselfMary Bartholomew, via The Good Book Stall
Strictly speaking many authors have written pieces for this book. Jane Williams invited contributions from many Bishop’s wives – and a couple of husbands, and has woven these together with her own observations and experience. The result should be read by as many people as possible, particularly those who come into contact with any of these people, especially briefly, when there is no chance to get to know the ‘person’ behind the public figure. Many of the wives tell of a burden of care to their husband’s flock, when they felt they had no training to undertake the work expected of them. Most are conscious of doing God’s work, in some cases in very dificult circumstances. Their varied accounts of life as the spouse of a Bishop are revealing and informative and Jane Williams’s observations pertinent and helpful.
