Om boka

Failure, rather than success, is at the heart of the life of Jesus and his message. He came to liberate us from the "gospel of success". It is not in "climbing the ladder of perfection" that we meet God, but in falling from it. And it is then that we discover the most beautiful spiritual gold.

Om forfatteren

Mark is a both a Priest of the Church of England and member of the Magic Circle. He sees both roles as essentially to do with evoking the 'priest' / 'magician' within those whom he has the privilege of meeting. He often performs close up and stage magic, entertaining such diverse groups as Massai Warriors and retried Roman Catholic Nuns. Mark has led retreats, and given talks, that combine magic and spirituality. He has also had many of his original magical stories and magic effects published, some of which he has performed on television.
