Huddleston was an Anglican monk and thus subject to the rule of obedience. He was called back from South Africa when he was at the height of his intellectual and physical powers. He was made Bishop of Stepney but like too many clergymen was tainted by accusations of sexual impropriety and as a result suffered to the limits of human endurance. In his retirement, he lived at the mother house of his order in Mirfield, Yorkshire, but his last years were not happy ones as he faded from public attention and underwent periods of deep depression and uncertainty about his fundamental beliefs.
Piers McGrandle's new biography of Huddleston is groundbreaking in its analysis of what makes men great. But it also brings the reader down to earth in showing how profoundly complex are the motivations of Christians who have wide influence. As a study in human psychology, McGrandle raises issues which may be applied to many so-called "saints".
