This volume is not a biography, at least not in the ordinary acceptance of that term. It is but little concerned with chronology, it aims rather at being a portrait, or at least a sketch, of one of the most remarkable spiritual leaders of the last half of the nineteenth century: Edward King, Bishop of Lincoln. Here was a man who, during the 56 years of his ordained life, exercised from the first to last a strangely powerful influence on those with whom he came in contact; and his influence was always of the best kind. It never seemed to fail—as curate in a country parish, as principal of a theological college, as a university professor, and, finally, for 25 years, as a bishop. This volume includes numerous illustrations and photographs.
