You Bantering Me?

The life story of Love Island’s biggest star

By Chris Hughes

  • Hardback
  • £16.99

With the nation gripped by Love Island fever, the show's most popular contestant ever shares his unique take on the world in a book that will be hilarious, endearing, heartfelt and as lovable as its author.

Chris Hughes walked away from the sizzling hot, smash hit show Love Island as its biggest star. Viewers fell in love with this cheeky, happy-go-lucky guy who surprised people by being unafraid to show his vulnerable side just as readily as having a laugh with his mates in the sun. They were captivated by the rollercoaster relationship between Chris and girlfriend Olivia and entertained by the bromance that developed between Chris and best pal Kem.

But what really makes Chris tick? What made this down-to-earth country lad swap life on the farm with his family for red carpets and newspaper front pages? Chris reveals all about his life before the hit reality TV show and how the crippling anxiety he has suffered from before still haunts him to this day. He shares how he has found fame and adjusted to his new life as well as the things he is learning about himself as his life is put under the spotlight for all to see.

With his trademark sense of humour and way with words, this is Chris's take on the world, his life laid bare.

The Christian and the Pharisee

R.T. Kendall, David Rosen
Authors:
R.T. Kendall, David Rosen

What starts as Rabbi David Rosen's staunch defence of his tradition against Dr R. T. Kendall's use of 'Pharisee' as a derogatory term blossoms into a fascinating exchange in which the two men openly discuss the basic tenets of their respective faiths. They explore the common ground that these two related religions share, and discover the fundamental differences that set them apart.This groundbreaking publication is a rare opportunity to read the heartfelt correspondence of two prolific religious leaders, both acclaimed theologians, as they seek to both vigorously defend their own beliefs and allow themselves to be challenged by the claims of the other. As the discussion continues we see mutual respect grow and a strong friendship forged before the relationship is inevitably tested as they reach points of seemingly irreconcilable difference.Is it possible for Christianity and Judaism to proactively co-exist when the bedrock of one denies the rationale of the other? This dignified book poses such difficult questions whilst offering greater understanding and hope for the future.
