Amazon labels the book’s age range as six to ten years. One reviewer suggests you could buy it for yourself if you sneak it out of the shop in a bag.

Speaking about Dan Strange’s new book, Tim Keller says, “There really is nothing else like this book.”

My wife was thirty-six weeks pregnant and it was the fourth time we’d seen the consultant.
“Pregnancy is so full of worry… can’t we just whip them out?” I asked, not yet knowing whether they were a boy or girl.
Our consultant – a Christian – looked at us first-time parents with the affirming smile of a seasoned mum. “The worry won’t end when your little one’s born. Mine have left home and I still worry.”
When Richard Dawkins writes about biology, he makes my heart sing. Few writers bring science to life in such a beautiful way.

Everyone loves a story – especially a story which ends in a person’s eternal salvation.
Finding More by Rico Tice and Rachel Jones tells the stories of eleven people. Each stumbled across Jesus.
I recently said the hardest goodbye I’ve ever had to say.
We put her down in the cold-cot, being careful with her lifeless neck. And with pangs of pain, we left the room, saying goodbye to our stillborn daughter.

Rachel Jones starts her new book with a bit of self-examination. The first chapter is called 31 Reasons You Might Need This Book. Here's Reason #1…
“Everyone wants a revolution. No one wants to do the dishes.” Have you ever heard a sermon or a talk which has really inspired you to live for Christ?
Do you live your Christian life in fear of the ‘P word’? Even if you feel confident answering questions about your faith, you just hope your friend doesn’t ask anything about that.
In 2010, while living in Germany, I met a fellow Brit and Christian. We got on well. But then I found something out about her which shocked me.

For me, Mike Cosper’s book Recapturing the Wonder is every bit a manifesto for magic as a case for wonder.
When Jesus died on the cross, he didn’t die alone.

I forget how great God is.
When we don’t pray about difficulties or find safety in him in suffering we act as though he’s like us.
C S Lewis once wrote that every age has a way of seeing the world. Some of it good.
I finally read A Call to Spiritual Reformation by Don Carson. To be honest, it stared at me from my book shelf for a few years.
