Fathomless Riches: Richard Coles

8th March 2015

The Reverend Richard Coles is a priest in Northamptonshire and a regular host of BBC Radio 4’s Saturday Live. He is also the only vicar in Britain to have had a number 1 hit single: the Communards’ ‘Don’t Leave Me This Way’. Fathomless Riches is his memoir in which he divulges with searing honesty and intimacy his pilgrimage from a rock-and-roll life of sex and drugs to a life devoted to God & Christianity.

At times disturbing in its frankness and self-centred drawing in of faith. A challenging read that can place ourselves within the kingdom’s call.

The Rev’d Canon Simon Moor – Vicar of Huddersfield Parish Church
