When we heard about Andrew Graystone’s new book, Faith, Hope and Mischief, and read the description of “tiny acts of rebellion – saying ‘no’ to the way the world is and saying ‘yes’ to another way…..doing small things that make a big difference”, we realised this was very close to the description of our own ‘small voice of the month’. It definitely ticked all the boxes!
Andrew’s stories encourage readers to take risks, make holy mischief, poke fun at the over-mighty, and believe that despite evidence to the contrary, the world’s story is going to end well. This is a manual of everyday activism, a wellspring of wit and wisdom for days when hope is hard to come by, and an inspiration for anyone who feels powerless to make a difference.
‘A great read — challenging, hilarious, poignant… you feel that all the lessons of a well-lived life are on a plate here. Like sitting down for a chat with an old friend, I loved reading this book.’ – Jeremy Vine
‘Andrew Graystone’s story of reaching out to his local mosque is funny, touching and lovely.’ – Victoria Coren Mitchell
