Safety, Acceptance, Belonging. These words come to mind when we hear about families. Having a mother, father, and twelve siblings living in a strong Christian faith should mean plenty of love, laughter and companionship.
But what if, inexplicably, one’s parents selectively manipulated and mistreated some of the children and not the others?
How would you deal with being one of three children who constantly bore unprovoked wrath and abuse — while watching the others receive the love, affirmation and nurturing you so desperately needed and craved?
Would you ask yourself if your life was worth anything to anyone at all?
Would you feel that God had overlooked and abandoned you?
Would you despair of God for being unresponsive when you cried out for relief?
Ron Corcoran’s frank and honest memoir courageously proclaims that no matter how wretched, broken or angry we may be, we can indeed be delivered, redeemed and transformed by the love of the living, eternal God.

The Bishop or the King, 2009
How should we react when those whom we trust to teach faithful biblical Christianity fail us?
As Christians what are we to do when the church embraces and blesses a false gospel?
Where does loyalty lie-with the institution and its leaders or with Jesus, Head and King of His church?
A former pastor in the Anglican Church of Canada describes how he and his congregation faced these daunting questions, struggled to discern the truth and made their painful choice.
"Three forces combined are progressively disintegrating the Anglican Church of Canada: relativistic liberal theology, idolatrous institutional defensiveness, and manipulative episcopal autocracy. This honest, restrained, sombre narrative illustrates all three. The scene that unfolds is unspeakably sad, and brings only dishonour to our Lord Jesus Christ."
- J.I. Packer, Professor of Theology, Regent College
"The word betrayed comes readily to the lips of many who were so deeply immersed in the life, worship and witness of the Anglican Church of Canada. Many of us struggle with the question, 'How could this departure from scriptural standards have happened with so little organized outcry from those in leadership positions during those relatively few years? This powerful book, The Bishop or the King, by Ron Corcoran faces this catastrophe head-on and confronts the situations and personalities that have brought about this destruction from within and exposes the sad apathy that hastened this descent."
- The Right Reverend Donald F. Harvey, Moderator, Anglican Network in Canada
Jesus, Remember Me, 2004
On the day that changed the world, three men were crucified on a hill outside Jerusalem. Two of these men were violent criminals. The third was God Incarnate. To His left, died a man mocking and cursing. To His right, died a man who cried out to his Saviour, "Jesus, Remember Me." Journey to the foot of each cross as these men face suffering and death. Then decide: Of the two men who died next to Jesus Christ, whose cross would you choose?
