Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungReverend Neville Stuart Talbot (1879-1943) was born at Keble College, Oxford. He was a bishop in the Church of England. When Neville was nine his father moved to Leeds. Neville attended the Grammar School, and then was at Haileybury. He joined the Army in 1899, just in time for the Boer War. Military life had an attraction for certain sides of Neville's character. It appealed to a certain simplicity in him and the need for courage. Neville was inclined to go straight at things, without weighing the risk. He blurted out untimely truths. The discipline of the Army did not affect him much. The Boer War was not a very good school for that. Much of it was like a shooting party, and the hazardous self-exposure in the clear air of the veldt remained his first taste of danger. In the winter of 1907 he went to Cuddesdon for his ordination training and was ordained Deacon at Ripon Cathedral. He was priested in Lent 1909 and went to be Chaplain of Balliol College, Oxford in October. During the First World War he was Assistant Chaplain-General to the Fifth Army after which he authored Thoughts on Religion at the Front (1917).
