The publication of “The Rough with the Smooth” coincides with the celebration of 800 years since the building of Solihull’s parish church of Saint Alphege. The author has selected and revised articles that he has written during the past twenty years for the parish’s prestigious magazine. Topics include time & eternity, resurrection, violence, the Psalms, Jesus the adolescent, the problem of pain, Jerusalem, ministry & ministers, heaven and hell and lots more.
Martin presents the themes in new and thought-provoking ways, often challenging and sometimes light-hearted. Between the essays are illustrations from his own sketchbook, drawn on location, each with a brief commentary. This bedside book will give you something to ponder over and sometimes make you smile.
