When Christine Morgan got Richard Coles, Kate Bottley and Giles Fraser together in a studio, all she had to do was plug them in and let them go. The dynamic between the three meant there were moments of real connection and poignancy alongside the laughter: 'I'm exaggerating for comic effect,' Kate announced after one particularly outrageous anecdote, 'It's one of the reasons we're here.' Each realized in the course of conversation that they favoured one of the three rites of passage: Giles: Baptism because you enter into the body of Christ Richard: Funerals because they take you into the mystery of God Kate: Weddings because you get to wear nice shoes Engagingly introduced by Christine Morgan, the book ends with the profoundly moving episode (recorded remotely in the three vicars' homes) that was broadcast on Easter Sunday 2020, to a world in crisis.

I am not at all religious (I thought) but Three Vicars Talking on @BBCRadio4 was beautiful. -- Bryony Gordon on Twitter There are no preens here. Each seems genuinely engaged with the others' experiences. All are funny, wise, thoughtful, occasionally confessional. They listen to each other. There is even the odd pearl of wisdom . . . This is good stuff . . . The clever producer is Christine Morgan. -- Gillian Reynolds, The Sunday Times Three Vicars Talking is a meditation on priesthood, wrapped up as a stocking filler . . . Bottley radiates warmth and relatability . . . Coles plays the familiar entertainment part of host struggling to control his effervescent guests . . . Fraser goes in to bat for muscular Christianity. * Church Times * It was heartening to hear a Church of England priest - Canon Fraser in this instance - state unashamed, "We're good at funerals", and he can also lay claim to the most affecting story of the half-hour, when he admitted to a temporary loss of faith after officiating at the funeral of a child. * Church Times * Entertaining * Daily Telegraph *
