Now in his ninth decade, former Bishop of Edinburgh, Richard Holloway has spent a lifetime at the bedsides of the dying, guiding countless men and women towards peaceful deaths. In Waiting For The Last Bus, he presents a positive, meditative and profound exploration of the many important lessons we can learn from death: facing up to the limitations of our bodies as they falter, reflecting on our failings, and forgiving ourselves and others.

A reviewer and writer for the press, including The Times, The Guardian and The Scotsman, Richard is a frequent presenter on radio and television, hosting a number of BBC series and currently the BBC Radio Scotland book review programme, Cover Stories. He is well known for his support of progressive causes, questioning and addressing complex ethical issues in the areas of sexuality, drugs and bioethics.

Take this opportunity to get together with one of the most important and beloved religious leaders of our time as he extends an invitation to reconsider life’s greatest mystery through his radical, joyful and moving book.
