POP.SEX -- Popular Sexuality: 1 by Angie Bowie
I had the pleasure of reading a pre-pub copy of this book and was extremely impressed. It's very well researched and documents sex through the ages in a racy, provocative and, at times, hilarious manner. Seriously recommended especially to religious people because the shady and taboo history of sex and religion is a story in itself, and Angie makes some very strong and necessary points on this theme.
For God's Sake Don't Go to Church: Radical Inspiri&hellip by Archbishop Jonathan Blake

A MUST READ book, for all those who struggle to hold onto faith after being so badly let down by the mainstream traditions of organised Christianity. Honest, Comical, Quirky, Powerful, Prophetic.

The author, Bishop Blake is a man with a passionate and generous heart. His vision of the Gospel is one that is offered unconditionally to ALL, irrespective of background, sexuality, gender, culture or religious adherence etc. If you're looking for one last book to convince you that there's still some relevance left in the message of Jesus, then go for it. You won't be disappointed.

I saw Hazel O Connor in concert earlier this year and she still has the ability to bring tears to my eyes with that hauntingly beautiful piece Will You.

Anyway, let's get to the book.
