As a boy, Noel Proctor thought that God didn’t live outside the Sunday School classroom. Until something happened that was to turn his life upside down and launch him into a totally unexpected career: chaplain to one of Her Majesty’s prisons. Noel soon discovered that he couldn’t convert the hardened inmates of Britain’s prisons singlehanded. God had to do a deeper work in his life before revival could come to the nation’s ‘forgotten people’. This is the warm and intimate account of how one man learned to live in the power & will of God, & how his wife found the courage to fight ‘terminal’ cancer. Above all it shows how God’s power can be released when his people put him first in their lives. Noel Proctor held chaplaincies at Wandsworth, Eastchurch & Dartmoor prisons before becoming Senior Chaplain at Strangeways in Manchester. Jenny Cooke is an adult education tutor who teaches creative writing. She is married with 3 children.
