'Sense and nonsense, conversations with a clown about spiritual things'

 By Malcolm Rothwell

 The Revd the Lord Griffiths of Burry Port writes:

I said yes, I’d endorse this book. After all, the author is a friend. However, I am a busy man so I thought I would just skim through it and write a nice, if anodyne, sentence or two; to show willing. That, after all, is what friends do.

 It didn’t turn out that way. This book took hold of me and would not let me go until I had finished it. The format, the content, the pungency and the passion quite overwhelmed me.

 This is a first-rate work of apologetics with no cant, no obfuscation, a sustained focus and lots of energy. It is a must, not only for old stagers like me, but for anyone else who wants to get inside the meaning of faith without the trappings or the entanglements of a previous age.

 I found it immensely pleasurable and I can only hope it gets a wide readership.

 The Revd the Lord Griffiths of Burry Port is Minister of Wesley’s Chapel, London, Former President of the Methodist Conference
