Black Sheep and Prodigals
An Antidote to Black and White Religion
By Dave Tomlinson
A guide to faith for doubters, sceptics and baffled believers - from the bestselling author of How to be a bad Christian
Black Sheep & Prodigals is aimed primarily at people who are on the edges or outside of mainstream religion - those who reject, question, or have little interest in the tenets of traditional faith.
It sets out to present a more contemporary and more humane approach to faith, drawing on honest doubt, common sense and spiritual experience.
Using no religious jargon, chapter by chapter, it opens up fresh discussion about the meaning of faith in today's world, inviting readers to arrive at their own conclusions.
Dave Tomlinson was a house church leader for many years and is now an Anglican priest. Unable to accept the narrow restrictions of his tradition, he founded the legendary Holy Joe's, a church in a pub in Clapham for disaffected church drop-outs. He is now Vicar of St Luke's, Holloway, a thriving parish church in north London. He is the author of the seminal The Post-Evangelical, I Shall Not Want and Re-enchanting Christianity, and most recently How to Be a Bad Christian and The Bad Christian's Manifesto.
