In Autumn 2014 Biteback is to publish an unauthorised biography of the new Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby. It will tell the dramatic story of Welby's life and the rise of the former city executive to the leadership of a 77 million-strong Anglican communion seeking to renew its relevance amid divisions over such issues as homosexuality and women priests. He was an outsider who took many by surprise by winning the race to become the 105th Archbishop of Canterbury. Once an oil executive in the City, he converted to the church and rose rapidly through its ranks. As a courageous peace negotiator while working in the oil industry he risked his life at the hands of Nigerian rebels. He now faces a very different challenge, the greatest of his highly unusual life, seeking to unify and forge an Anglican Church fit for the twenty-first century. Welby has signified his determination to play a central role in public life by remaining on the parliamentary banking commission, which is playing a key role in devising new standards and regulation of the financial services industry. Welby has proved a staunch conservative on the issue of gay marriage; yet he has also brought his business experience to bear on the commission's task of reforming irresponsible capitalism.
