So at last, after several years in the making, my latest book is out today!

It was first mooted around 5 years ago, I think. And to begin with, the focus was just going to be on the gospels. But when Chris Wright’s SWEETER THAN HONEY came out, covering the whole of the OT, mine somehow expanded into a treatment of the whole of the NT.

The main challenge has been to ensure that it crosses cultures. My initial draft didn’t quite manage that – especially because it contains 4 sample sermons (one for each genre) and I tend to be quite colloquial and idiom-filled. It makes me blush to think of it, but in my very first version, I even had the phrase, “we’re just going to have to bat on here otherwise everything will go pear-shaped.” Not sure how that would have translated into any language.

But the really good news is that (in contrast to most contemporary publishers), the e-book version is a LOT cheaper than the paperback. £3,99 instead of £9.99.

Tomorrow, I will post some real downloadable goodies from the book for you to use in whatever way you wish… see you tomorrow!

In the meantime, check out the book’s microsite here.

“O Tempora! O Mores Evangelicii!” 10. A milestone and a decision

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).
