This paper is the result of ethnographic research carried out by the Managing Chaplain at Haverigg Prison. It is the first work of its type since the reorganization of the Prison Service in 2013 under the heading 'Fair and Sustainable.' Essentially, it is a case study of the role of the Managing Chaplain at Haverigg, with an evaluation of the changed role of the Prison Chaplain, with particular attention to the chaplain's role as a Christian leader. Much of the content is concerned with perception, both historic and contemporary. The main body of the work identifies relevant background information alongside other models of leadership. It traces the history of the development and perception of the Prison Chaplain, and constructs an understanding of the leadership style currently employed. Issues arising include mission (as it applies in this context), the tension between pluralism and the uniqueness of Christ, the implicit suggestion of syncretism, and the use of religion as an intervention. The conclusion includes recommendations for maintaining the integrity of Christian witness whilst fully respecting all faiths.""Glynn Jones gives a fascinating insight into prison life. A highly readable and well written study on modern day faith.""--GP Taylor, New York Times bestselling author, broadcaster, and screenwriter""Engaging from the outset, this case study allows fascinating insight into the perceptions and role of the modern day Chaplain. Drawing from a wealth of sources, a well researched comprehensive chronology, and background history, the reader is afforded context. The delicate balance fulfilling Prison Service requirement and facilitating all faiths, without compromising personal and/or religious integrity is thought provoking . . . Highly recommended.""--Rebecca A. Flux ""[In] meetings across the country before the grade of Managing Chaplain was introduced, multi-faith groups of chaplains were encouraged to reflect theologically on the implications of this change, and on what their faith tradition understood about leadership. To read Glynn's exploration is to recognize someone who has wrestled--personally and professionally--with these issues from a Christian point of view, and will, I hope, inspire others to do so from within their faith traditions.""--The Venerable Mike Kavanagh, Head of Chaplaincy and Faith Services/Chaplain General, LondonReverend Glynn Jones is the Managing Chaplain of Haverigg Prison. He has been full-time with the Prison Service of England and Wales since 1977, serving in nine establishments of varying security, age, and gender categories.
