Book endorsement: Risking the Truth

Here's an endorsement for the forthcoming interviews book from Stuart Olyott:
Spencer Cunnah (1) : Psalm 139 : Abortion – a biblical critiq

This is a book that promotes reflection. By introducing you to a number of leading Christian thinkers, it gives you a read that is interesting, informative and stimulating. It provides you with a treasure-chest of historical, theological and practical insights as it airs issues that are confronting the worldwide church and its leaders at the present time. Christian pastors, leaders and academics who neglect this book will be very much the poorer intellectually, spiritually and practically.

Stuart Olyott, Pastoral Director, Evangelical Movement of Wales
