‘The glory of God appears at its deepest level when by His working God destines Himself to the necessity of waiting …It is in waiting that He invests the world with the possibility and power of meaning.’


In The Stature of Waiting, W. H. Vanstone – award-winning writer and Canon Emeritus of Chester Cathedral – reflects on the majesty of Jesus as he ‘waits’ before those who accuse, taunt and crucify him. For us today, such times of passivity and passion are as important as times of action and taking charge.

W.H. Vanstone was a priest in the Church of England, Honorary Canon of Manchester Cathedral and Canon Residentiary of Chester Cathedral. He wrote three books, Love’s Endeavour, Love’s Expense, The Stature of Waiting and Fare Well in Christ, all of which are regarded as modern-day classics of Christian spirituality.
