Publisher's Summary

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.

Insipirational

A fantastic book that only proves that christians are just your normal average person and that even as christians we doubt our faith from time to time.

Matt is a real inspiration.

Loved this book !!

Any additional comments?

Really loved this book - funny, informative, thought provoking and great to hear such a 'modern day' vicar speaking from the heart. Well worth a listen.

Insightful, witty and brutally honest

Loved this deeply personal account of Matt's journey to Dad and Priest. Wonderful listening. Will revisit often for inspiration I have do doubt.
