James Michael Liston: A Life by Nicholas Reid

$12.00

"When James Michael Liston died at the age of 95 on 8 July 1976, he had been a Catholic priest for 72 years. Coadjutor-Bishop of Auckland from 1920 to 1929 and bishop in his own right from 1929 to 1970, he was the leader of New Zealand's most populous Catholic diocese for half a century, and was the recipient of many New Zealand and international honours." "Nicholas Reid's biography gives a full account of Liston's work within the New Zealand church, and his huge contribution to its development. It also pays attention to the controversial aspects of his career. The first of these is his early commitment to the cause of Irish independence, and his trial for sedition in 1922. The second is the tension that arose around his conservative opinions and personal style towards the end of his very long career, when, as the late Michael King wrote, 'Liston's growing conservatism and "creeping infallibility" imposed stress on his colleagues and the priests of his diocese'." "On reading an earlier version of this biography, King remarked that it was 'an outstandingly good and at times riveting example of historical research' and commented on the author's 'unprecedented access' to archival sources, and 'unusually frank interviews' with informants.
