Soul Bare – ed Cara Sexton (IVP, 2016)

Tanya Marlow has contributed a chapter to Soul Bare, a powerful and beautiful collection of true stories.

Soul Bare features popular and emerging Christian writers, including Sarah Bessey, Seth Haines, Holley Gerth, Emily P Freeman, Dan King and many more.

Soul Bare is for anyone who has struggled with disappointment and hard times, and is looking for honest stories of vulnerability and authenticity.

It is a tapestry of songs of grace and redemption in the face of disappointment and grief.

“I held my breath, I cried, I shuddered, I whispered prayers, I ached. Most of all, I fell more deeply in love with Jesus through these words and stories. I can’t help but think how wide and deep and long this love is that finds us all so broken and yet so beautiful.”

—Idelette McVicker, founder and editor-in-chief, SheLoves Magazine

You can buy Soul Bare from your local Christian bookshop or online from Wordery (UK) or For more information on Soul Bare click here. 


Coming Back to God When You Feel Empty - Book CoverComing Back to God When You Feel Empty

Tanya Marlow (Createspace, 2015)

How do you find a path back to faith when you’re feeling empty, dreaming about the life you wish you’d had?

The biblical book of Ruth is a story of disappointment followed by restoration; wandering and then homecoming.

In Coming Back to God When You Feel Empty, Tanya Marlow gently interweaves her own story of loss with Ruth’s story, getting under the skin of the characters, and bringing the biblical book to life.

“Intensely honest yet wonderfully gentle… I recommend this little book to anyone who has ever doubted God, anyone who has been angry with him, anyone mired in exhaustion and despair – in short, anyone who is a Christian.”

– Dr Ros Clarke, author and Online Pastor for Diocese of Lichfield

At just 50 pages, it is a short read for busy people, and there are creative exercises and questions for reflection at the end of each chapter, making it ideal for personal study or group discussion.

You can buy it in paperback  from for £3.99 or $5.50 from or get it as an e-book FREE when you sign up to my newsletter updates. For more details and FAQs click here.
