My new book: The Upside-Down Bible

August 12, 2015

I am delighted to report that my third book is now available to order. It will be published in November. I'm very grateful to everyone who has helped me with the writing process - both practically and emotionally.

It's called The Upside-Down Bible: What Jesus really said about money, sex and violence. It will be published by Darton, Longman & Todd.

The book explores the teachings of Jesus in short chapters that can be used for personal reading or group study. It is “upside-down” because each chapter begins by drawing on the insights of non-Christian readers who are new to the text in question. It also seeks to challenge interpretations that have grown out of Christianity's links with wealth and power. Instead, it emphasises that Jesus spoke with people about their everyday lives.

You can order the book, priced £9.99, from the publisher's website: http://dltbooks.com/titles/2145-9780232532074-upside-down-bible. Of course, you can also request it at your local bookshop.
