Tom Gordon

Contemporary parables for living

SKU/ISBN: 9781905010769

Tom Gordon is a storyteller. He takes what is real and vivid, and creates stories of meaning and insight. This collection of original and contemporary parables –– the first of a series of three –– uses the framework of the Christian Year to offer a story for every week, and a few more besides.  

As an observer of life, Tom also draws on his experiences in parish ministry and hospice chaplaincy to create a rich, creative resource for personal or public use. His stories will make you smile and shed a tear, allow you to ponder your own related experiences and take you into uncharted territory. But, along with his prayers and poems, they will always make you think, offering reflections on life and faith that will help you be aware of familiar things in a new and imaginative way.

This volume relates to lectionary cycle C.

‘"Tom Gordon is a natural storyteller whose gift is to see the transcendent in the ordinary and express it in vivid contemporary terms. Like all good storytellers, his stories carry a power which needs no tedious elaboration.’"

Ron Ferguson, from the Preface
