Gospel Of Falling Down
Full Product Description
The author, a clergyman, writes with brutal honesty, letting readers into the secret areas of his life, with all its faults and failings. The lessons are authentic, learnt by someone who knows how harsh life can be, and yet also how magic life can become. It connects with readers at a deep level. But not only does the message of clergy frailty come through, another truth hits home- that these very cracks and faults can potentially be the place where the most beautiful spiritual gold is discovered. It is not in "climbing the ladder of perfection" that we meet God, but in falling from it.
Gospel Of Falling Down by Mark Townsend was published by John Hunt Publishing in February 2007 and is our 31277th best seller. The ISBN for Gospel Of Falling Down is 9781846940095.

The Gospel of Falling DownIan Gibson, via The Good Book Stall
This book, written by an Anglican priest who is himself an accomplished magician, gives us a great base of spirituality emanating from failure rather than success. In a world where we all strive to be good, to be successful, to win at all costs, this book is refreshingly different. The contents look at the spiritual life we could lead – not by seeking to go for failure at every opportunity, but to realise that we have a gospel that allows us to fail occasionally and that, as humans, we often do, and should learn from the experience. Full of biblical examples and experiences, we learn how often failure gives us the spur to improve and succeed and learn from the experience. The book can be read by individuals or used as a course of lessons, with the reader trying out the various tasks that are illustrated. Fun as well as teaching – always a good experience in my mind!
