Father Michael Harper was a prominent leader in the Anglican charismatic renewal movement, in Britain and worldwide. In 1964 he founded the Fountain Trust, to promote the charismatic renewal, and he wrote several books on the topic, among them Glory in the church, As at the beginning, and A new way of living. He visited South Africa several times, and spoke at various renewal conferences.
In 1995 he left the Anglican Church because of what he saw as doctrinal aberrations, and joined the Orthodox Church. He became Dean of the Antiochian Orthodox Deanery of Great Britain. One of his more recent books is A Faith Fulfilled, Why Are Christians Across Great Britain Embracing Orthodoxy?
