A specialist book which must get beyond the specialists as it speaks into prejudice, inter-faith issues and basic hospitality
A serious, professional and manageable contribution to Bible study on a highly relevant contemporary concern, as well as a gift to those looking for Bible Study relevant to today’s world
Excellent book telling stories of mission which challenges our preconceptions, especially about what constitutes success
Well researched biography of this truly remarkable preacher, described here as the first Transatlantic Revivalist
A comprehensive overview of how, throughout history, Christians have read all 76 verses of Bathsheba’s narrative in every way imaginable
Reprint of books published in 2013 and 2014; but the re-tellings reinforce a cosy fiction
