Jumble Sales of the Apocalypse
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!
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.

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