He is also the author of ‘A Better Story: God, Sex and Human Flourishing’ and ‘The Big Ego Trip: Finding True Significance in a Culture of Self–esteem’.

During the pandemic we are releasing short extra episodes called ‘The Sacred Reflections’ in response to the strange times we are living through. Former guests are returning to reflect on how they are processing this season, if this crisis has crystallised or even changed what they hold sacred, and what it might tell us about our collective sacred values.
We would love to hear your responses to these same questions. You can send us your thoughts in a voice note to 07778160052 or you can email us at email@example.com. Please keep your responses to under a minute and a half if you can.
