QCA Audiobook.jpgWell, I didn’t even know that this was on the cards – but it seems that my short book WHAT MAKES US HUMAN (available in print and as an ebook from the Good Book Co) has now been produced in by ChristianAudio as an audiobook.

The reader is Derek Perkins who is one of the very best – so that’s fantastic. And he’s a Brit too so that helps – would have felt quite odd to have my stuff read by another nationality! (My ONLY quibble is that he kinda mangled my surname – but he’s by no means the only one.)

In fact, while I’m at it, I’m going to take the opportunity here and now to tell everyone how MEYNELL is pronounced: ready?

it rhymes with kennel or fennel – with a silent Y as in Reynolds).

Got it now?

The great news is that the very nice people at ChristianAudio have given me 5 vouchers for a free download of the book. HURRAH!

So I’m going to offer these to the 5 best entries in the latest (if irregular) instalment of Q Competition Time.

You have until midnight on Saturday 30th January (i.e. a week) to submit the wittiest answer to the following question:

I feel less than human

when I lack _________!

The 5 winners will then be announced on Sunday 31st January.

So come on everyone, let’s get witty…

Something Hugh said at that meeting in Sheffield has been etched on my memory every since. I’d only been in ordained ministry perhaps 2 or 3 years and we were having our normal post-Summer catchup and planning session.

We would habitually begin with a short devotional, but that day, Hugh was in reflective mood. Only a few weeks before, he’d celebrated his 50th birthday, and now he openly described how affecting that milestone had been. If memory serves, it was on the lines of “I now realize that I have more years of formal ministry behind me than ahead of me.”

“O Tempora! O Mores Evangelicii!” 9. Believing the propaganda

You will know of Godwin’s law, I’m sure, whereby the longer an internet discussion countinues, “the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1.” So, I’m afraid, the time has come.

One of the most gripping if chilling works of history that I’ve read is one that I find myself returning to a lot these days, despite the fact that it is well over 10 years since I first encountered it (in early research for Wilderness of Mirrors). Sir Ian Kershaw has spent a lifetime researching 20th Century German history and has brought all kinds of profound insights to the anglophone world (including through his mammoth two-volume biography of Hitler).
