This chapter examines the career of Hensley Henson as Bishop of Durham during Great Depression in Great Britain and his relations with the miners. It suggests that though Henson was aware of the suffering of the miners in Durham and he tried to help provide meaningful work for the unemployed, he condemned the coal-mining unions' strikes. It also discusses Henson's participation in protests against the government's acceptance of Italy's invasion of Abyssinia and his condemnation of the anti-Semitic policies of Nazi Germany.
