The Right Reverend Justin Welby is to try his hand at broadcasting in a new weekly radio show for the BBC.
The Archbishop of Canterbury will be interviewing the likes of Tony Blair and Stephen King as he hosts a six-part series focused on faith and morality.
In each half hour episode, the Church of England's most senior bishop will discuss the balance of spirituality and life in the public eye with a number of high profile authors and politicians.
The Archbishop said it would be "a privilege to be able to spend time interviewing fascinating people from different backgrounds for this series."
"I relish the opportunity to be the one asking the questions rather than answering them.
"There are few better ways to get to know someone than to inquire and listen.
"I want to hear about people's lives, and the events and underlying frameworks that shape their views, and I'm extremely grateful for the generosity extended by each person in giving their time, honesty and sometimes their vulnerability as they tell their stories.
"I hope the series might give those who listen to it the curiosity to look at others who are different to them, to wonder who they might truly be, and how we might build relationships that cross divides.
"I pray it would be an encouragement to each of us to have conversations that seek to understand and know one another more fully."
The Archbishop Interviews will air for six Sundays on BBC radio 4.
