About the Author

Mark is a both a Priest of the Church of England and member of the Magic Circle. He sees both roles as essentially to do with evoking the 'priest' / 'magician' within those whom he has the privilege of meeting. He often performs close up and stage magic, entertaining such diverse groups as Massai Warriors and retried Roman Catholic Nuns. Mark has led retreats, and given talks, that combine magic and spirituality. He has also had many of his original magical stories and magic effects published, some of which he has performed on television.

Reviews

Mark's book is humble, searching, faith-filled, and yet risky and creative at the same time. He is vulnerable throughout, much of it showing the depth and fruitfulness of having suffered along the way. Richard Rohr OFM The forgiveness and unconditional love of God are our starting point, our present reality and our destination. That fundamental truth of the Christian faith, too often distorted by the Church, shines out of Mark's book. There is much wisdom here, and I found it rang a whole bell-tower's worth of bells for me. Trevor Dennis, Vice Dean of Chester Cathedral This little book is tackling one of the biggest and deepest questions which, unexpectedly, brings us to the foundation of the Christian faith. Mark has discovered this through his own experience of falling down, or failure. Bishop Stephen Verney Mark's vision is insightful. What comes across to me is his willingness to penetrate those places that the 'church' so often stops short. This book will be an opening of the heart for many readers. Canon Peter Spink - Author and Founder of the Omega Order What I most like about Mark's book is the zest, quirkiness and sheer fun with which he creates and keeps open for us the space of brokenness and vulnerability as the highroad to Gospel living. May Mark's hints at falling become ever more contagious! James Alison, theologian and author In our consumer age of programmed experiences and packaged spirituality here is a gift from an authentic pilgrim - a journey of vulnerable faith, - with scars to prove it - offered with gentleness, wisdom and not a little mischief!. David Runcorn, theologian and author
