Ralph Burden's No Coincidence is an exciting, intelligent and inspiring little book which I feel honoured to recommend. It is also a most thought-provoking, pithy and challenging presentation of the claims of Christ on our lives told with honesty and integrity. As a one-time partner in a church-planting venture of Ralph's during his time in Yorkshire, I got to know him well and we shared quite a few interests in common including a love of music, athletics and writing. But we also shared lots of jokes - Ralph never started a sermon without one! Although deadly serious in some of the anecdotes included for our benefit here, his sense of humour oils the wheels of the narrative nicely. This is a must-read for sceptics and seekers alike as Ralph has a way of making some powerful points with complete lack of pomposity. At the very least, you will have far less excuses for rejecting God by the time you have finished. And he presents plenty of evidence - both personal and otherwise - for the wonderful discovery that God has a perfect plan for each and every one of us.
