The Gospel According to Canon & Ball
by Tommy Cannon and Bobby Ball with Chris Gidney, illustrated by John Byrne
Publisher:Canterbury Press imprint of Hymns Ancient & Modern Ltd
There are many laughs in this book as you would expect from this pair, but the underlying message is serious in the extreme. We need to find Jesus as our personal friend and saviour. Cannon and Ball celebrate their faith, by sharing stories from their lives, including the bad years together, and showing how their finding God has enriched their humour and healed their personal friendship. A little photograph at the start of each short piece indicates which one has written it, and as you read through you are chuckling one moment – sometimes against your will !– and the next moment you are brought up short with a profound thought. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
