David Hayward - the 'Naked Pastor' - is one of the most prolific Christian cartoonists of the online world. Describing himself as 'a graffiti artist on the walls of religion' with the aim of 'helping people undress religion to the core essential of their own unique spirituality', his immediately-recognisable images are shared by thousands across social media every day. This book uses David's cartoons and accompanying text to tell his own story from being a 'Closed' Christian, with a black and white, fundamentalist view of the world to the freedom of becoming an 'Open' Christian with the courage to ask questions and wrestle with some of the tougher challenges of faith.

David Hayward, aka nakedpastor, has published his first book of cartoons. This book contains 101 of his best and most provocative cartoons, including 10 new ones exclusive to this book.Here's what people are saying:“What another creative communicator did with parables, David Hayward does with cartoons… I'm a big fan!” Brian McLaren“David Hayward says in pictures what I would love to say in words. There are times when all the words in the word don't say it as well a rightly crafted image. David Hayward says more of the hopes of God, the struggles of the church and the possible path forward for us all in images than anyone could with words.” Doug Pagitt“David Hayward does what cartoonists do best: he makes you laugh, gets you on side, and then catches you unawares with a challenging thought that comes at you sideways. Unmissable!” Maggi Dawn“Through nakedpastor's cartoons, I've been able to join other broken buddies as we pray and play on the fringes of the faith. By deconstructing the mounds of Jesus junk, we can catch fleeting glimpses of God.” Becky Garrison“David's cartoon's are often funny, sometimes sad, always honest. I think of them as political cartoons that aren't about politics: they express a longing or a frustration or challenge to think in a new way.” Mark Oestreicher

Ruth Tucker recounts a harrowing story of abuse at the hands of her husband—a well-educated, charming preacher no less—in hope that her story would help other women caught in a cycle of domestic violence and offer a balanced biblical approach to counter such abuse for pastors and counselors. Weaving together her shocking story, stories of other women, and powerful stories of husbands who truly have demonstrated Christ’s love to their wives, with reflection on biblical, theological, historical, and contemporary issues surrounding domestic violence, she makes a compelling case for mutuality in marriage and helps women and men become more aware of potential dangers in a doctrine of male headship.

You can’t be satisfied. Life is difficult. You don’t know the secret. Whether readers are devout believers or distant seekers, The Idolatry of God shows that we must lay down our certainties and honestly admit our doubts to identify with Jesus. Rollins purposely upsets fundamentalist certainty in order to open readers up to a more loving, active manifestation of Christ’s love. In contrast to the usual understanding of the “Good News” as a message offering satisfaction and certainty, Rollins argues for a radical and shattering alternative. He explores how the Good News actually involves embracing the idea that we can’t be whole, that life is difficult, and that we are in the dark. Showing how God has traditionally been approached as a product that will render us complete, remove our suffering, and reveal the answers, he introduces an incendiary approach to faith that invites us to joyfully embrace our brokenness, resolutely face our unknowing, and courageously accept the difficulties of existence. Only then, he argues, can we truly rob death of its sting and enter into the fullness of life.
