It’s clearer to me than ever that the selfishness of a few are ruining the lives of the many, and what baffles me the most is that you and I do nothing about it. We don’t challenge it or sanction it, and I think it’s because we secretly hope one day we will find ourselves [...]
I’m now back in the UK. The reason I haven’t written for a while is because I was trying to sort my life out. After losing my job in South Africa in May, and struggling to even get an interview for anything new, I decided to make a run for the land of my birth [...]
I had Cheryl Ramurath contact me from Joburg recently, and after reading the book she asked to interview me with the view to seeing it published somewhere in the near future. In the meantime I thought I would post it here for those of you who are interested. It’s a bit long so I’m posting [...]
As you’ll hear; Rob is my clever friend. He’s a lecturer at the Cornerstone Institute (www.cornerstone.ac.za) in Cape Town, and he does a huge amount of reading on Theology. He is the guy I go to when I’m completely stumped on something. I actually usually drive away from our coffees together feeling even more confused; [...]

Praise for the Book:
"If you prefer to watch the battles of the institutional church from the sidelines, then this book is not for you. It's a firm shove off the fence of passive spirituality."
"Witty, cynical, personal, and deeply hopeful. A breath of fresh air to church-goers, and non-church-goers alike."
"A clarion call for the reclamation of the authentic Gospel of Jesus Christ for our society, for our times, and for our churches."
"Irreverent about the things the institutional church reveres, and reverent about the things the Kingdom is all about."
