Full Product Description
We are familiar with the idea of friendship as a gift, something that bestows blessing on our lives. Hospitality enriches both giver and receiver, while humour is a gift that, used sensitively, can shed a warm light even on a bleak situation.
BUT there are other aspects of life that we may take for granted or even actively dislike - aspects such as ignorance, tears, grief and anger, which can also be viewed positively as gifts.
Drawing on scripture, song, poetry and insights from daily life, Kevin Scully considers different facets of ten such gifts, from the familiar to the unexpected. He shows how each has the potential to be a source of personal wonder and joy and can also draw us closer to God and to one another.
Simple Gifts by Kevin Scully was published by Bible Reading Fellowship in March 2012 and is our 25081st best seller. The ISBN for Simple Gifts is 9781841018515.

Simple GiftsGeorge Taylor, via The Good Book Stall
This is a lovely, short book in which the author looks at those parts of our life which we often take for granted and in doing so miss the wonder and joy contained in them.
Kevin Scully, the Rector of St. Matthew’s Bethnal Green in East London has chosen ten aspects of life which we sometimes overlook and considers how they might be of benefit to us. These include, the gift of tears, of rest, of anger, of humour and of grief amongst them.
Each is given a separate chapter and using verses from scripture, songs and poetry as well as examples from life, the author shows that even the most demanding of situations can enrich our life and bestow blessings.
A book that can be read through, or dipped into when a particular situation arises, it is a book that provides helpful insights into unlikely subjects and so is to be enjoyed for the subjects it covers and also for the author’s clear and incisive writing style.
