The Accidental AnglicanAlice Collins, via The Good Book Stall
This made for a fascinating read from a man who started writing his life story at 52. Todd Hunter tells us of his vast life experience in the church, which starts off with his conversion in the Jesus Movement to his four years experience as the executive director of Alpha USA, to his being an ordained Anglican bishop. Throughout his career, he built and helped run church plants. He always felt attracted to the ancient symbols; the altar, the candles and the incense. These liturgical church marks are important to him in retaining his relationship with God, and he sees himself as an evangelical Anglican. Key figures who influenced the author to take the cassock are John Stott, Sandy Millar, who personally recommended him if he felt the Holy Spirit’s calling, and (Holy Trinity, Brompton) HTB’s current vicar Nicky Gumbel. This book is important to anybody who is seeking God’s calling and sense of vocation in their career, and who wants to work on not their terms, but God’s.

"Hail to you!... Accidental Anglican you may be, but it is real, rich Anglicanism that you perceive and pursue. May your ministry among us be gloriously blessed."
From the foreword by J. I. Packer
"Todd's story is a fascinating, moving, honest and often very funny account of what God can do with one of his servants committed to growing his kingdom today . . . very inspiring."
Sandy Millar, vicar, Tollington Park, and assistant bishop, London
"Todd Hunter's journey-unlike that of the 1980s 'evangelicals on the Canterbury Trail'--is a missional merging of Anglican resources and church-planting passion. Free of romanticized illusions, he offers a clear-eyed appreciation of the Anglican potential for mission after modernity."
David Neff, editor-in-chief, Christianity Today
" One part autobiography and one part apologia, this book provides an 'outsider's' perspective on the richness of authentic Anglicanism, and the treasures of this particular branch of the Christian church that have captured his heart."
The Right Reverend Chuck Murphy, chairman, The Anglican Mission
