Theo : A Novella 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. The enthisiasm that John Elliott brought to his position as vicar at the Church of St John of Arimathea some two years ago has waned.
Despite his best efforts, he still only has a congregation of sixteen, and raising funds for upkeep is an unrewardded chore. These are witnessed several times. John wonders if this could be something else. And his visits to Alfred Stone, the former vicar, now in a mental institution, reinforce this. What Torday does do is provoke thought about religious belief, about vocation, about mental illness and medication.
And it appears that this novella is a prequel to Loght Shining in the Forest, so perhaps more will be revealed therein. Anonymous More than 1 year ago Name: are u really as stupid as ares?

He is the vicar of St. Joseph's church although he could quite so easily have been an accountant or a solicitor. His world was turned upside down when his father, a Minister of the Church of Scotland died suddenly at the age of John was devastated and believed that by studying theology at Durham University would be the best path to follow. Initially, he was full of optimism hoping to encourage his parish to attend the church instead of filling just the first three rows of the church with its ageing members and the rest of the church empty.
John's wife Christine was a primary teacher and it was through contact at the school that Theo was introduced, an unusual child with serious wounds and marks to indicate that he was physically abused. The Reverend Alfred Stone was the previous vicar who suffered a mental breakdown and was being treated at St.
