5.0 out of 5 stars Road tested on holiday in Greece, 12 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My advice is if your looking for a case for your kindle touch - get this one. I have just come back from a 2week beach holiday in Greece and this case has stood up well to the knocks and bumps of beach reading. The integral light that runs off the kindle is an absolute must if you don't want to disturb the missus in the middle of the night. It must use a very small charge as I used the light several nights and the kindle for several hours a day over the 2 week period and still have 30% charge left - says a lot for the case as well as the kindle. The reviews about the angle of the light are (in my opinion) bizarre and I haven't noticed any problem with reading with it. The cover does scuff a little but considering I've thrown it into a sandy ruck sack and on pebbles its held up pretty well. I've also not noticed any problem with the front cover not closing neatly over the front In summary its a reassuringly robust case to protect your flimsy kindle, makes the device easier to use like a book and the integral light is an absolute must. The cover does scuff a little but so does the cover of the paperbacks we used to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fresh perspective on the week that changed history, 4 May 2009
The week in which a man was put to death by Roman authorities would not normally attract any attention.
But it did - and does.
Page delves into the historical perspective of this epoch changing week with a fresh and riveting perspective. He manages to combines a wealth of historical research with an exciting narrative.
A book for Christians to understand more about Jesus - the raw, uncensored version.
A book for non-Chrisitians to place Jesus in his historical context - to start to understand why this week really was such a big deal.

5.0 out of 5 stars My most played tape/CD over the last 30 years, 25 Feb 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bob Dylan At Budokan (Audio CD)
I first heard this whilst driving around Snowdonia as a teenager. The tunes and riffs entered my brain and have never left.

If I had to take one album on a desert island - it would be this one. Why? Because like the best pieces of music, it catapaults you to a different world; a different time; a different life. The purists will correctly complain its not the essential Dylan - so what, its a glorious album and the reworking of some of his older songs are melodious, energetic and exciting.

If you are new to Dylan, get this album - its brilliant.

If you're old to Dylan - get this album unless your a son/daughter of Pete Seegar and have no direction home.

The Church Invisible: A Journey into the Future of the UK Church

5.0 out of 5 stars A witty allegory with a powerful message, 8 Dec 2004
As with much of Page's other writing, this book works on several levels. With echoes of "Screwtape", Nick and Lydia disucss what has become of the church forty years hence in a witty but profound way. The futuristic concepts in the book are plausible and amusing. Most importantly, however, the book serves to challenge ecclesiastical complacency and serves to high light the reasons for dwindling church attendance. Humorous, very readable and with a powerful message - this is a must who have found traditional church practices are not developping their christianity and who are looking for new ways to grow spiritually.
