‘The Old Old Story… Simply Told’ is a ‘jargon-free’ version of the story of Jesus of Nazareth – what he did and said. A story told simply with explanations of the customs and circumstances in which the events took place. Did he really exist – or was he a myth? Is this story relevant for today? Judge for yourself.
Most books on Christianity are written for people who already believe. This is not one of them. This book is mainly for anyone who is not a Christian but curious about what a Christian is, or represents. It’s a book for the sceptic or those for whom ‘faith’ is a problematic word; for any who are curious but not yet convinced. It has been written for the serious or casual ‘enquirer’; for the ‘browser’; for the person who says “there’s a lot of ‘stuff’ about Christianity that I don’t understand, and I can’t be bothered to find out - it’s too complicated!” It’s a book written for anyone who feels they’ve ‘messed up’ their lives, and don’t know what to do next. And it’s for those who don’t really care about Jesus, (whoever he is), and who have no need for ‘stuff’ like this. It’s also a book for any Christian who can’t quite find the words or doesn't know where to start to tell others what he or she believes.
If you are any one of these people, this book may be for you.

About the Author
I'm a lay preacher in the Methodist church, in Bath (UK) where I have lived with my wife for over 30 years. We have three children who have all left home and living in various towns around the UK. My interests, outside the church, include orienteering and fell running (although not too much of this lately) and singing in a local a cappella choir.
