Skeletons in the cupboard
A birth, not a babyfest
Christian family values?
The religious reprobate
Talking to strangers
Giggling or God
John L. Bell
A beginner’s guide to a larger Christ
Not another book about what we already know, but one about what we overlook.
Here, John Bell explores facets of the personal life, relationships and ministry of Jesus which are seldom the stuff of preaching or conversation, but which are all rooted in the Gospels and are necessary if we are to be freed from the passive stereotypes which still dominate thinking about Christ.
Much of the book is rooted in encounters with people on the periphery of religious life and in situations where politeness was not a prerequisite for discussing faith.
John Bell is a member of the Wild Goose Resource Group of the Iona Community, an ordained minister and an occasional broadcaster who lectures and preaches across the globe, working in the areas of liturgy and spirituality.
