Andrew White is something of a legend: a man of great charm and energy, whose personal suffering has not deflected him from his role as one of the world’s most trusted mediators and reconcilers. Andrew grew up in London. As a child and young man he was frequently ill, but his considerable intelligence meant that his studies did not suffer. He set his heart on becoming an anaesthetist, an ambition he achieved, only to be called to Anglican ministry. Since ordination he has had a considerable role in the work of reconciliation, both between Christian and Jew and between Shi'ite and Sunni Muslim. Often in danger, and frequently in pain from multiple sclerosis, he has nevertheless been able to mediate between opposing extremes. He is trusted by those who trust very few.
