Recently been visiting an AZW FB Page, and a member shared very interesting details about being given this book to read, apparently from a descendant of the Colenso family.

Never heard of it before, just having purchased THE HERETIC myself about Bishop Colenso.

Anyone own or have read the Rowse book ?

Thanks Alan

Isnít it interesting, Iíve had dealings with Durnford descendants and still do, but never even considered seeking out descendants of the Colenso family.

That said though, I never acquired any of the other Colenso books, apart from My Chief And I, still havenít, excluding my recent Bishop Colenso purchase, but I recall from older discussions/forum they werenít to be taken seriously (too close to the subject apparently) so was put off buying.

However, Iíve been reconsidering this point lately due to recent disclosures
