Lists can be an entertaining distraction but Ten demonstrates they can be stimulating too. With characteristic wit and candour, John Pritchard attempts to get clear in his own mind what he believes after 40 years of trying to make faith understandable to others. Topics include: - Ten problems people have with faith - Ten things I believe about God - Ten things I don't believe about God - Ten words of wisdom - Ten cliches to avoid - Ten ways to pray - Ten lessons learned This is a great book whether you're sceptical about Christianity, feel there may be something to it, or simply want reassurance - in the midst of life's frequently bewildering moments - that it really does make sense.

Press Reviews

Ten reasons why Christianity makes sense? I’ve just thought of an eleventh: John Pritchard’s compelling and accessible writing. This book makes faith seem possible and God more available.

- The Rt Revd Stephen Cottrell, Bishop of Chelmsford

Ten words to celebrate this book and its author: punchy, pithy, profound, piercing, probing, playful, parabolic, pathfinding, poetic, and powerful. A perfect discussion-starter and provocation to new or renewed faith.

- The Revd Dr Samuel Wells, Vicar of St Martin-in-the-Fields, London
