Product description
'The power comes when our minuscule individual efforts are multiplied across a family, a community, a region, a country.' Martyn Kelly's thoughts on the Gospels draw on Biblical scholarship and the Quaker perspective, but also consider such aspects of contemporary culture as rap music, concerns about the environment, and stand-up comedy. His idea that the Gospels can illuminate the smallest details of human interaction is powerful, and very Quakerly. 'It starts with us, flawed individuals, who continue to draw inspiration from the words of an itinerant first-century Jewish preacher who was, himself, rooted in a much, much older tradition.'
