A new work that incorporates a year's worth of Bible readings, thoughts, prayers and anecdotal stories. Ishmael draws on over 30 years' of ministry for this book, which is written in a style that young and old alike will love it.
As Ish says, "At first glance you will see this is not an in-depth daily study book, it is more of an autobiography with a thought and prayer for each day. As you read my stories you will see that I have tried to be totally honest, this is Ish 'warts and all' but my prayer is that God uses these little anecdotes to encourage and maybe even challenge those who read them. I have laughed out loud as I have written some stories and almost wept as I have written others. It has been a difficult book to write".
"Ish is a one-off! His spiritual journey has been larger than life, which is why he is such a hit with children and young people. This book is full of stories about people Ish has met; some are serious, some hilarious, but all appear in these pages for one purpose: to bring the Bible to life, and to help us in our daily lives to learn more about the good news of Jesus.
Ish has become a Deacon in the Church of England, based at Chichester Cathedral, where he and Irene worship. As Ish would say, "Who'd have thought it!" But he would add, "Thanks be to God," and so do I for this gem of a book." NICHOLAS FRAYLING, Dean of Chichester
