`Every birthday I wonder if the year to come will be my last, and I'm filled with a certain element of surprise that I am actually still alive. `The letters that follow are the things I really want to say in the event of my death. Some are things I haven't dared to say, felt confident enough to say, or just not got around to. They are to particular individuals - some of them are close friends, some are people I vaguely know, a couple are to people I have never even met. `I'd be interested to hear their replies.'

Chris Russell

Chris Russell is the vicar of Saint Laurence, Reading, an Anglican church aimed specifically at young people.

Ten Letters is one of the most profound, practical and deeply theological books I have read. Chris Russell in my view is a national treasure. He runs one of the least talked about but most exciting and significant Churches in Britain. These letters let you in on his secret. They show how the Church if it is to be missional must be intimate and pastoral. If it is to be authentic to the faith it must be local and spiritual. Above all Chris offers us a glimpse of an intelligent, mission orientated and Spirit led Church. These are letters to his friends but as we listen in we share in a vision of the future. But the really exciting thing is that this Church actually exists and it is in Reading! -- Peter Ward, Professor of Theology and Ministry, King's College London In case I don't return, whenever I fly anywhere I always write a letter to my children on the night before I leave. I tell them the things that I want them to know more than anything else; about my love for them, and about where this love comes from and how it shapes the universe. In this moving and beautifully written book Chris Russell goes several steps further and says in ten lovely letters the things he wants to say to people he has known and ministered to. His love of life, his vivid and rooted faith, his desire to share with others the things he has received come shining through. And although the letters are addressed to others, each one spoke to my heart too. I'm sure they will do the same for anyone who reads this book. There is a file in my drawer with all my letters to my children in it. I think I will add these ten letters as well. -- Stephen Cottrell, Bishop of Chelmsford These letters are honest, thoughtful, caring, engaging, informative, inspiring and life changing. -- J John, evangelist Chris's book is pure poetry; the kind that shakes you to your core and moves you to a deep place of thinking and being. Uncomfortably real, fiercely honest, beautifully Chris. -- Rachel Gardner, Director, Romance Academy
