A rabbi and a vicar walk into a book festival. Two men of God reflect on their amusing and challenging paths. Having been an agony uncle, prison chaplain and nightclub bouncer, Rabbi Jonathan draws on his wide life experience: attempted seductions, multiple murders, Machiavellian families, hijacked weddings, catastrophic funerals and more are revealed in Confessions of a Rabbi. A quiet Yorkshire parish life beckoned for vicar David but his flock had other ideas. Local landowner Lord Feversham, Ted - a retired chef and Polish Free Army veteran - and Frank the elderly singing shepherd all feature in his memoir, Shepherd of Another Flock.
