This chapter examines the career of Hensley Henson as Bishop of Hereford. Prime Minister David Lloyd George nominated Henson despite the objection of the Archbishop of Canterbury. This chapter explains that Henson's reasons for becoming a bishop were more national then diocesan. He saw the Church of England going down the Gadarene slope and he wanted to hamper the movement towards synods, church assemblies, and autonomy from Parliament. He served at Hereford from 1917 to 1920 before becoming Bishop of Durham.
