‘Some days arrive with questions so vast we feel like strangers on earth.  Other times our joy makes us feel entirely at home in ourselves…’

Lifelines is the title of a book I’ve written with my friend Malcolm, a small attempt to translate religion into contemporary English.

Published by Unbound, it’s subtitled ‘Notes on Life & Love, Faith & Doubt’,  and it’s an experiment in drawing on the genius of poets, songwriters and novelists, inside and outside of the stories of faith, to come up with some practical tools for living a good life.

It wonders up to big subjects like forgiveness and kindness, grief and justice, asking where can we find inspiration for living a rewarding life.

The poet Vanessa Kisuule finds it ‘generous, profound and challenging’.  Which is kind of what we were hoping for. Bag a copy here.
