The Bloke's Bible

Full Product Description

At last! The book that allows men to be men and have a real, manly faith. Through down-to-earth Bible retellings fused with the tale of an ordinary bloke, ‘The Bloke’s Bible’ shows men how ordinary - and absolutely just like them, Bible characters really were (and shows women how men relate to, and think about, the Bible).

The story centres on an ordinary bloke who escapes to the local pub for a few drinks and the comfort of a warm fire. He rummages around inside a tatty old Bible and finds the usual stories and the usual suspects – David, Peter, Moses, Thomas… but not in the way you’d expect from a Bible picked up in church. Here there is no piety or platitudes and no guilt laden instructions to just do better. Instead its pages are stories and stuff about being set free and allowing guys to be guys, blokes to be blokes and men to men – and still have an active, living faith. Yes, even a faith that shaves.

Dave Hopwood’s ‘The Blokes Bible’ gives you men who wrestled with God, struggled with temptation and experienced real fear, doubts, faith and courage – just like every other man. Each chapter starts with the Bible reference that relates the ordinary bloke’s story to the parallel Bible narrative. Here are the chapter titles.

Bathsheba’s Bath
Ehud’s Hood
Job’s Got Boils
The Man Who Would Be King
Adam’s Best Mate

This selection of familiar Bible stories retold runs parallel with the story of an ordinary guy who goes to the pub, opens a battered Bible then reads and reflects on everything you've ever wondered about. Hard-hitting, challenging and very honest, Dave Hopwood's sharp observance of human nature and divine love makes an entertaining, exciting and poignant read.
