A matter of perspective
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 05-27-2014
I couldn't believe these amazing street art photos from: justsomething.co Its an amazing skill, lining everything up so that from just the right angle these 2D pictures suddenly take on a whole new dimension. It reminded me of the opening lines of a Tale of Two Cities "it was the best of times, it was the worst of times" was the French revolution the best thing to have happened to France - it depended who you were and where you stood. That got me thinking about  the most significant crisis in…

Paradoxological Thought for the Day #4
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 05-27-2014
There's been a lot of debate recently about which books should be included in the English Literature syllabus. "To Kill a Mocking Bird" is out and so is "The Grapes of Wrath" as they are not English enough. What is often missing in these debates is the way that English literature has been shaped by the Bible. So many of the key tropes and themes in our literature have been shaped and formed by the biblical narrative. For young people to fully grasp English literature they need biblical literacy too.…

Paradoxological Thought for the Day #3
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 05-26-2014
People grow up quickly. Looking at the actors from Harry Potter on the first day of filming and then again on the last day is a strange experience. We all watched Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint grow up in front of us. We feel older and wiser as we recognise this fact but we also wonder where the time went. If you are a believer I wonder how long it has been since you became a Christian?  I look back on the last 27 years since a friend…

Paradoxologial Thought for the Day #2
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 05-25-2014
I love the strapline for the latest Adidas World Cup advertising campaign: "All in or Nothing." It reminds me of my secondary school PE teacher. I wrote about him recently in a Christianity Today online article. "I loved the way he wanted my rough comprehensive school in Brighton to have a rugby (for U.S. readers: think American Football but without the body armor and helmets) team that could take on the well-to-do public schools in our area. I was virtually blind without my glasses on, but I could run fast, and…

My new book Paradoxology: Why Christianity was never meant to be simple  is aimed to help you think more deeply about the big questions of life and faith. As a little audio taster of paradoxology I am pleased to be able to bring you (courtesy of Premier Christian Radio) a daily paradoxological thought for the next 5 days.  Each is about 2 minutes long and gives you a little insight into the heart off the book. The story you are about to hear is about as sad as it gets... (come…

Make the Most of Father’s Day
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 05-15-2014
There are so many children waiting in care for a father in their lives.  Some have had to be removed from their parents because of neglect or abuse. Some have never known a father's love. This father's day help us to inspire men to step forward to make a difference to vulnerable children lives. I spend a lot of my time  travelling the UK speaking with churches about the need but also the clear biblical mandate for us to care for the vulnerable in our communities. Every where I go I…

Christianity was never meant to be simple

You can pre-order Paradoxology: Why Christianity was never meant to be simple right now or if you are at Spring Harvest or World Alive you can buy it right away from the bookshop. We had great fun making it so special thanks to: Lucas  who plays young old me. Zach  who plays the friend. Ruth who…

Men and Church
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 04-01-2014
I have been asked to respond to the challenge of the male gender deficit in church attendance. I wanted to make sure there really was a problem first. The most extensive research I could find (thanks to the wonderful EA information officer Kim Walker) revealed this table: Peter Brierley working off of the 2005 census argues for a discrepancy figure of 14% with female churchgoers in England at 57% and male churchgoers 43%. This is a scary imbalance but look what happens when it is broken down according to age…

Too much Aid not Enough Help
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 03-29-2014
Review Too Much Aid not Enough Help, Ken Gibson This important book is a hard one to read. Not just because the subject matter is global poverty or that it reveals the complicity the western world and the aid business have had in making the two-thirds world poorer, but because it is unremitting in its style and content. Ken Gibson is the Executive Director of The Leprosy Mission Ireland. It might seem surprising that the leader of a development agency is daring to write a book that encourages less aid…
