So I commissioned the best artist I know (Jon Marlow, who happens to be married to me), and the best graphic designer I know, Laura Pasterfield (who happens to also be an ordained minister). They have captured the heart and feel of this book so well in this cover. Here it is:
Those Who Wait: Finding God in Disappointment, Doubt and Delay

Coming 16 Oct 2017

I contributed a chapter to a wonderful project called Soul Bare – ed. Cara Sexton, and I’m delighted to announce that it’s being published by IVP in Aug 2016.
It went something like this: Jon and I told the boy we were having a book launch party. The boy, quite reasonably, thought that ‘party’ meant ‘party’, i.e. an event with lots of people to celebrate the launch of my book, but we disappointed him by telling him there were no presents at Book Launch Parties, or in our case, any guests . We were celebrating with a steak dinner and an early night. Nevertheless, the boy was very taken by drinking fizzy elderflower drink out of a champagne glass after bedtime, and decided he would quite like a launch party of his own.
You can still get it for free by signing up on my website and reading it on PDF or emailed to your Kindle. But – if you love the physicality of books, and you would rather turn pages with your whole hand rather than a finger, my short book on the biblical book of Ruth is now available to purchase, from Amazon, for a mere £3.99 or $5.50.
