This book is the result of painstaking research by Chris Garland. He gives an account of a remarkable Anglican Missionary; a pioneer in Papua New Guinea during the first half of the twentieth century. Romney came from a talented and artistic family; a devout Anglo Catholic priest of the old school who sought devotedly to relate Christianity to the indigenous culture. In pioneering industrial training for the converts he led them to self-reliance, involving them in church government as well other initiatives. His commitment and heroism, especially during the Japanese occupation of the islands, greatly endeared him to his people. INCLUDES an extensive bibliography and is well illustrated with many photographs. " THIS A GOOD READ and an important chronicle in the annals of an Anglican Diocese..." Canon Henry Evans "There is an enigma about Romney, yet a strange fascination and vision, which readers of these pages will sense..." Bishop David Hand (former Archbishop of Papua New Guinea).
