Do you long to share what Jesus is really like, but struggle to know how? Do you feel like a weak link when it comes to evangelism? And do you wonder what a peg and a pumice stone could have to do with it all?

Then this is a book for you!

In these twelve true and original stories, Glyn creatively considers different aspects of what it means to be ‘good news’ amidst all the busyness, tragedy and comedy of our daily lives. With grace, honesty and humour, he shows how God can speak through us in the most extraordinary ways as we learn to listen to Him, ourselves and others.

Don’t expect formulas for evangelism but do expect inspirational ideas, encouraging perspectives and the occasional punchy challenge.

  • I first encountered Glyn by the fruits of his work. I kept coming across evangelists who were alight with Jesus and comfortable in their own skin. The common thread? Glyn Jones and The Light Project.

    This is book is fresh bread. Engaging story telling by a man who 'does what Jesus says', who prays and sees the extraordinary in ordinary situations, who lives his faith, not just explains it. Honest, vulnerable, engaging. Loved it!

    Rev Dr Jill Duff, Bishop of Lancaster
  • This is a wonderful book and I couldn’t wait for the next story, as each one has a delight and beauty all its own. Glyn is real and funny, and yet all these encounters come from a deep, deep trust in the God who is out there and who loves us. This is an infectious book and I am hoping to catch what Glyn has got, and I hope you do too.

    Keith Sinclair, Bishop of Birkenhead
  • Glyn uses his wide experience of doing evangelism to engage us with a variety of stories. They are worth considering and then informing our activities.

    Revd Canon Dave Male, Head of Evangelism and Discipleship, Archbishop’s Council, Church of England
