9780006281351: Chronicles of a Vicar

This is the long-awaited collection of Fred Secombe's three vicar stories: Hello Vicar!, A Comedy of Clerical Errors and The Crowning Glory. Newly appointed as vicar of Pontywen in South Wales, Fred throws himself into the responsibilities his post entails. The new vicar finds himself in trouble with a curate of his own, the Reverend Barnabas Webster, a man in love with status. He gets entangled in an argument over a sermon condemning corruption in the town council; and he counsels a young organist who behaves too affectionately toward a choirboy. Fred's happy marriage to the capable doctor Eleanor is a source of comfort and hilarity, especially when the rural deanery decides to venture into sex education, with Eleanor placed in the unenviable position of giving the talk.
