As ever, todays prophets are hardly ever preachers or theologians, but rather artists and poets who paint and play the truth past religious defences and into real faith journeys. Theyre heterodox enough to get stoned and honest enough to warrant a healing. David Hayward is razor-sharp commentary through wry hilarity Gary Larson meets Jeremiah.
David Haywards engaging memoir, told in words and cartoons, traces a disjunction many people feel between church structures and personal spiritual integrity. He relates with disarming honesty how he faced difficult decisions when his gifts and calling did not fit within traditional boundaries. It is a memoir that will inspire readers to find a deeper and more fearless spiritual path. I couldnt put it down.
A compelling exploration of faith, doubt, vocational discernment, and self-discovery. Come for the laughs, stay for the brutal honesty about matters of religion.
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 Davids 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.
