Information from Amazon UK:

“Lionel Blue is one of those paradoxes: Britain's most famous Rabbi and a household name, his Jewish wit and quirky spirituality never fail to entertain. Yet he has lived a life on the fringes. A Rabbi who has remained true to his tradition, he has also found a home in Christianity. A man who has struggled with his sexuality, he has learnt slowly and painfully that spirituality and sexuality are inextricably entwined. Lionel Blue has never tried to escape the contradictions of a life lived honestly, and he has remained open to exploration and challenge. This all makes for an autobiography of immense richness.”
