Well… do forgive me for giving a push to my own book, but Pam and I became excited when Christian Focus brought it
out in time for Christmas 2013.  For a long time I had come to the conclusion that there was nothing in the book market that helped to equip and inspire people of every age and experience involved in Christian service… at whatever level.

I’m grateful for the supportive comments that feature in the opening pages of my book – written by Fiona Ashton, Timothy George, Alec Motyer, Mike Reeves (Foreword), Bishop John Perry, Richard Trist and George Verwer.   There are 25 shortish chapters of no more than 2,000 words each. And plenty of stories. You can dip in anywhere!
