This is a collection of short pieces for daily reading in Lent, taking a wryly humorous look at the world and reflecting on the questions of faith that arise from the everyday. "Strangely Warmed" is a collection of short pieces for each day in Lent, designed to be read in the bathroom or on the train, as one would a magazine column. Each piece takes a wry look at the world and reflects on the questions of faith that arise from the everyday - the advertising slogan, the bus journey, the church jumble sale...Drawing on the ingredients of scripture, theology and philosophy, "Strangely Warmed" aims to make serious doctrinal points with a lightness of touch, offering bite-sized morsels to be enjoyably chewed over, in the hope that this will lead to a deeper reflection on, and appreciation of, Christian faith.
