Product Description

Review

'Here is a book that manages to be lively and profound at the same time. It is honest, funny and challenging - one of those books that makes you remember why it's worthwhile being a Christian.' --Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury

'To read this book is to travel with the best kind of tour guide. He points out the sights, explains their significance, and leaves you thinking not just about the places to which you have travelled but also those you have left behind. Nick's writing is at once warmly witty and hauntingly provocative. It sets the theological nerves jangling, the laughter muscle twitching...and the sound track's not bad either!' --Rev Richard Littledale

Nick Hornby is the founding father of a certain kind of bloke, who likes football and music and is modest but honest about his emotional life.
Nicky Gumbel heads up the Alpha Course, the most successful Christian introduction around today.
If you crossed the two of them together, you'd get something like Nick Baines - he's a Bishop in the Church of England, but he's a child of the Sixties. He knows his Pauline letters, but he also knows which Van Morrison album he'd choose to take on a desert island.
And this is in a sense a Christian version of "31 Songs"31 Songs, Hornby's brilliant analysis of himself through the songs that have meant the most to him at different times of his life.
Baines grew up as a Christian of the more conservative sort and then has deconstructed and reconstructed himself as a a kind of open evangelical: he's rooted in the Bible (his own faith commitment stemmed from sitting and reading the Gospel of John straight through, aged 11) but he's tired of who's in-who's out, doctrinaire Christianity, and more focussed on the wider church and letting God speak to him rather than him speaking to God.
This book is a kind of illustration of his journey, taking in different songs along the way that speak to him, as well as different life experiences: growing up as an odd teenager, because he was a Christian and most others at school weren't, working in GCHQ during the Cold War and struggling with morality, calling to priesthood and a troubled period at theological college, marriage and children...
Now, I loved this book. But then I'm a prime target.

Really enjoyed this book --having known Nick Baines when he was a curate, I could " hear" him as I read--he writes very honestly & with humour of his growth in the Christian faith from a young age and the struggles he felt , and it's interesting to read how he relates his thinking to favourite songs and the thinking behind them. I recommend the book .
