Full Product Description
As well as considering incidents in the lives of characters such as Peter, Barnabas, Hannah and Naaman, Ish also reflects on life in all its aspects, from jealousy, worry and guilt to unity, joy and the living in the freedom of doing what God likes. He ponders on marriage, raising children and the trials and tribulations of life.
As you read the book you hear, through the tongue-in-cheek humour the voice of a man aware of his own vulnerability, who is honest with God as he aims to live out his main purpose in life - to point others to Jesus.

MoreishAlan Hill, via The Good Book Stall
This is a series of 52 short stories, sermons and Bible studies on a wide range of topics. The author is Ian Smale, better known as Ishmael. He is currently a Deacon at Chichester Cathedral.
Ishmael has a varied Christian background and this shows in his writings. Essentially an evangelical Anglican, he does stray into Pentecostal and even Anglo-catholic views.
Ishmael can certainly tell a story. Quite often he writes in a jaunty style with many amusing comments. This was not to my taste—the message of God's word is too important to trivialise in this way. However, the best chapters (such as ‘Insured but not fully protected’) have a more serious tone and tackle head on important questions and subjects.
Overall this book is like the nibbles you might be offered at a cocktail party: Some are tasty leaving you wanting more, some are tasteless leaving you wanting less.

"As you'd expect it's written in typical Ish style: easy to read, with a balance of tongue in cheek humour and thought provoking challenge. As well as providing a little more simple Bible knowledge for those who are not intellectuals or theologians, my prayer is as always, that this will not be just an enjoyable read but that God will speak to and encourage all who read it. With warmth,encouragement, and no holds barred honesty, Ishmael nudges us forward with Jesus. Highly recommended." - Jeff Lucas. Author, speaker and broadcaster.
