About the Author

The Reverend Richard Coles is the presenter of Saturday Live on BBC Radio 4. He is also the only vicar in Britain to have had a number-one hit single. He read Theology at King's College London, and after ordination worked as a curate in Lincolnshire and subsequently at St Paul's Church in Knightsbridge, London. He is the author of Lives of the Improbable Saints and two memoirs, the bestselling Fathomless Riches and Bringing in the Sheaves. He lives in his parish of Finedon, Northamptonshire.


Great riches, spiritual and worldly, and an honest perspective on humanity -- Susan Hill * THE LADY * Charming ... This is a book to keep on the arm of your chair and browse through -- Miranda Threlfall-Holmes * TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT * Screamingly funny -- Thomas Blaikie * THE LADY * Coles offers an engaging portrait of the lived Christian life in a way that speaks openly and intriguingly to both cradle Anglicans and cagey agnostics -- Christopher Landau * CHURCH TIMES * It is a delightful compilation of thoughts, memories and incidents, all told with his signature humanity and humour * CHOICE * A series of often hilarious vignettes * SAGA * Richly associative and absorbing -- Nick Curtis * RADIO TIMES * It's a vision of contemporary Anglicanism as seen through a particular, perhaps slightly glitterballed perspective. I enjoyed it even though I'm an atheist * THE HERALD MAGAZINE * An entertaining mix of the sacred and the secular, the gossipy and ritualistic grandeur that attempts to give the reader a feel of the texture of the life of a vicar -- Teddy Jamieson * THE HERALD MAGAZINE * His life story is intriguing - pop star to Anglican vicar - but it is his insights into the church's present situation, Christian belief and above all human encounters that are honest, sometimes funny and occasionally revelatory -- Susan Hill * THE SPECTATOR Books of the Year * There is much to teach us and inspire us as well as to entertain and make us laugh -- Paul Richardson * THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND NEWSPAPER * Coles draws on his 11 years in the clergy, with all the humour, quirky characters and incidents that life - and death - serve up * MAIL ON SUNDAY EVENT MAGAZINE * Bringing in the Sheaves is another lively and perceptive collection of anecdotes and insights derived from his recent experience of juggling daily life as a parish priest with his curious hinterland of burgeoning celebrity. Coles is a witty and likable raconteur -- Phil Harrison * GUARDIAN * Others mapping the daily clerical grind might hold forth on divine transcendence and immanence, on our fallen natures and need of grace. Not so Richard Coles ... Bringing in the Sheaves is an invitation to see the world as he does: the ultimate in the intimate - after all, what other way is there? -- Christopher Harding * SUNDAY TELEGRAPH *
