Black Sheep and Prodigals

Full Product Description

  • For anyone new to Christianity
  • Dave Tomlinson looks at faith with an open and humorous gaze
  • A smart antidote to religiosity and jargon-filled faith
A guide to faith for doubters, sceptics and baffled believers - from the bestselling author of How to be a bad Christian

Black Sheep & Prodigals is aimed primarily at people who are on the edges or outside of mainstream religion - those who reject, question, or have little interest in the tenets of traditional faith.

It sets out to present a more contemporary and more humane approach to faith, drawing on honest doubt, common sense and spiritual experience.

Using no religious jargon, chapter by chapter, it opens up fresh discussion about the meaning of faith in today's world, inviting readers to arrive at their own conclusions.

Dave Tomlinson continues to write for those on the edge of Christian faith. — The Church of England Newspaper

I finished Black Sheep and Prodigals impressed by the work of Dave Tomlinson, and I would be a difficult person to win over: here is a priest who celebrates holy communion with Hobnob biscuits and communicates the unbaptised...what shines through is Tomlinson's commitment to people whom the Church has missed, or grasped all too eagerly and burnt in the process. — The Church Times

Very readable and accessible. — The Methodist Recorder

It's very interesting, it's all about not alienating people before they even think about crossing the threshold of where you worship. — Chris Evans - BBC Radio 2

Possibly the youngest looking 69 year old in the world, author of Black Sheep and Prodigals, what a book that is! — BBC Radio 2, Chris Evans

Tomlinson is encouraging readers to think for themselves. — Preach Magazine

Very accessible... I commend this book — Methodist Recorder
