‘What do you do when the Second Coming is scheduled for next Wednesday? . . . Assemble at your nearest church? Make sure you’ve got clean underwear on? Confess those last sins? Send some goodbye texts to unbelieving friends? Take Paracetamol in case the rapture gives you the bends?’

Those and other neglected theological questions are rigorously examined in this book. With its gently satirical take on some of the weird ways in which people express their beliefs, it’s a book that will help you appreciate the true value of religion by exploring the comedy of its wilder excesses. Whether you’re a believer or a non-believer, fond of religion or a more than just a bit suspicious of it, you’ll find your assumptions are far from safe after reading it!

Press Reviews

Simon Jenkins is a witty, honest and thought-provoking writer. He is a true talent in terms of making the Big Subjects not only accessible, but also a joy to read. This book is the 3 Fs: Funny, fascinating and foughtful.

Simon Jenkins has a collector’s eye for those special moments when religion crosses the line from heart-warming to toe-curling. The hilarious Jumble Sales of the Apocalypse is a guided tour of those misguided moments. . . a treasure trove of Christian wackiness.’

Honest, odd and often very funny reflections of Christian life.

warm and knowing style, with clever nods to theology and tradition
