Philip: A Novel by Chris Duffett
Roman soldiers, temple prostitutes and children who can see the future. Violence, miracles and a love story lasting 60 years. Philip is a coming-of-age story and a 'spiritual biography' of one of the most important figures in the Bible, imagined by one of Britain’s most innovative evangelists.
In this book Chris imagines Philip the evangelist as someone many of us might know: a boy with a disability, caring for a sick mum; a teenager in love with his childhood friend; a man plagued by self-doubt, even as God uses him in people’s lives.
Walk with Philip through the streets of first-century Samaria and Jerusalem. Listen to him talk with Jesus in a market place. Watch him struggle with anger and fear and stress. Feel his enduring love. Get to know the Bible’s first evangelist, and know that if he could do it, so can you.
Philip is a rags-to-spiritual-riches story full of warmth, romance, drama and truth.
