This is an auction for SET IN A LONG PLACE: A LIFE FROM NORTH TO SOUTH, by Maurice Andrew.

"SET IN A LONG PLACE is the autobiography of Rev Maurice Andrew, a Presbyterian minister for 40 years who was born in Auckland in 1932. In part one we are given an account of Mr Andrew's first 21 years - growing up in country towns and settling in Dunedin where in 1953 he completed an MA in German. Part two covers his study at Knox College and Heidelberg (where he completed a PhD on the place of the historical psalms in the Old Testament), his marriage and pastoral work in New Zealand his teaching in Nigeria and at Knox College. But it is his responses to novels, poetry, drama, music and films that I enjoyed reading most. Mr Andrew rekindles and revitalises an interest in the arts as few autobiographies do. He gives his opinion on the changes in the church, mentions working with other denominations, (including Holy Cross College) and how he was devastated when the Presbyterian Church closed the theological hall. His colleagues, teachers, friends and relations have all their best qualities noted, so if you knew him well at any stage of his life you are sure to find your name in the index. Or if you have never met Mr Andrew, treat yourself to this 375 pages of extraordinary detailed delight."
