Bishop Michael Curry’s books to be published in UK for the first time
A UK Christian publishing company has announced it will be publishing three books by the American bishop who preached a sermon at the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
Most Rev Michael Curry’s books, Crazy Christians, Songs My Grandma Sang and Following the Way of Jesus are only currently available in the US.
Andy Lyon, publishing director at Hodder Faith, said the books will be published over the next nine months.
“Bishop Curry made religion front page news after his involvement in the royal wedding - there can’t be many sermons recently that have prompted so much discussion and debate,” he said.
“We are delighted that these three accessible and thought-provoking books will now be available for readers here in the UK.”
The first of Bishop Curry’s book to be released by Hodder Faith is Crazy Christians: A radical way of life on 20th September.
The Presiding Bishop of The Episcopal Church wrote: “What the Church needs, what this world needs, are some Christians who are as crazy as the Lord. Crazy enough to love like Jesus, to give like Jesus, to forgive like Jesus, to do justice, love mercy, walk humbly with God—like Jesus.
“Crazy enough to dare to change the world from the night-mare it often is into something closer to the dream that God dreams for it.
“And for those of us who would follow him, those of us who would be his disciples, those of us who would live as the people of the Way? It might come as a shock, but those of us called to that life are called to craziness, too.”
Songs My Grandma Sang will be released on 24th January 2019 and Following the Way of Jesus will be released on 4th April 2019.
