Author Michael Frost defines exiles as people who are not at home in the traditional church or in the secular world. His book suggests that there is more to being a Christian than meets the eye. It explores the secret, unseen nooks and crannies in the life of a Christian and suggests that faith is about more than church attendance and belief in God. Written in a conversational, easy-to-read style, Exiles is aimed at church leaders, pastors and laypersons and seeks to address complex issues in a simple manner. It includes helpful photographs and diagrams.
It is the book we have chosen to read at our next Good Faith Book Club on Saturday 23rd January. We meet between 2 and 4pm and if you fancy coming along, why not add the book to your Christmas list?
