by Sue Latimer, with poems by Clive Sansom
Foreword by Martin Cavender
Sue Latimer is a Reader in the Axbridge benefice, and a chaplain to Wells Cathedral. These stories, each based on a biblical text, were originally written to be read aloud. Interspersed with powerful poems by Clive Sansom, and illustrated with images created by a Christian community in Cameroon, each story offers a radical and personal perspective on a familiar Bible text.
Sue’s own story is about “a life which includes twenty years of drug addiction and twenty nine years of recovery: a life in which Jesus was a constant presence. He accompanied me in all the twists and turns of my journey. I cannot imagine life without him.” Perhaps it is this raw experience which enables Sue to penetrate so alarmingly and creatively into the subtext of the biblical stories. Read it alone or as part of a small group – it is likely to open up your conversations!
Author Nick Page comments: ‘This collection of stories is a great resource which will lead us deeper into the Bible, and see some familiar tales in an entirely new light.' It is, says Martin Cavender in his Foreword, ‘a sort of gathering of captivations.’
