Tom Wright for Christmas!

Here at A Great Read we are always looking for exciting new Christian literature to enhance people's day to day understanding of the bible. We firmly believe that Nicholas Thomas Wright, formerly Bishop of Durham and Tom Wright to many, has achieved this with his 'For Everyone Series".

The set consists of no less than 18 books examining every book of the New Testament in amazing detail. This set represents 8 years of Tom's writings and as such provide an amazing insight into his scholarly findings and his personal view on Christianity.

We have been selling Tom's 'For Everyone' books since they first published and they have always sold amazingly well, appealing to all ages and many different branches of the Christian community and even for non-Christians seeking to better understand the message of the bible!

"These commentaries on the New Testament are furnished with Tom Wright's own fresh translation of the entire text. Each short passage is followed by a highly readable discussion, with background information, useful interpretation and explanation, and thoughts as to how it can be relevant to our lives today."
(Nick Gypps, A Great Read November Magazine ©2011)
 Our usual price for these excellent commentaries is £7.49 per book, reduced from an RRP of £9.99. However this year we are running a special deal on a set of all 18 books for just £125! That's a massive saving of £55!

The Scribblings of a Madcap Shambleton : Review

With the festive season just around the corner it's a fairly safe bet that at least some of you are looking for some great gifts to give to your family and friends. Well, look no further, over the next few days we'll be highlighting some of this year's best gifts and offering them at some extraordinary prices!

'The Scribblings of a Madcap Shambleton' is Noel Fielding's first solo art book and is a truly surreal masterpiece. With wide variety of both Noel's artwork and his hilarious tales and narratives.

Noel is well known for his roles as the incredible Vince in 'The Mighty Boosh' and also for his work on radio and as a stand-up comedian. This book is a bit different as it contains Noel's personal work uncut and uncensored, (please note, due to the nature of some of the content in this book we only recommend it to readers over 18).

This new book makes a wonderful gift for any fan of Noel Fielding's work or for any art lover. Plus, with a retail price of just £16.99 its very, very affordable. However, we know everyone is tightening those purse strings this years so, we can now offer you an amazing discount in this title, £9.99!
