Neil Paynter has been a farm labourer, a fruit-picker, a teacher, a security guard (reluctantly), a bookseller, a hospital cleaner, a stand-up comedian, a musician and an editor.
The stories he tells here come out of the experience of working in homeless shelters in North America and Britain, as a nurse’s aide with the elderly and as a mental health worker.
A book about searching for, and finding, Jesus, God and the Holy Spirit in down-to-earth places.
Listen to the author reading extracts (see below left)
In a world of easy compromises and much false posturing in which the rich, the often corrupt, and the people with power keep telling us how to live and what to strive for, Neil writes about a world where hearts matter and in which vulnerable folk can teach us much.
