The electors of the Anglican Diocese of the Northern Territory have chosen Rev Dr Greg Anderson to be their next bishop. Greg is currently the Head of the Department of Missions at Moore Theological College in Sydney, where the website says this about him:

Greg teaches mission subjects.  His research interests include Aboriginal Christian faith, missional/emerging churches, the Christian/Muslim interface, dessert recipes, ways to beat squash opponents fifteen years younger than him and cryptic crossword solutions.

Greg is a former missionary in the NT with the Church Missionary Society (CMS) and well-respected in the field (in both senses!).  Both CMS and the Anglican Board of Mission (ABM) will be very happy with this appointment. His research and publications are heavily weighted towards the particular issues of indigeneous people in the region. An excellent appointment!
