On the buses

Wow, aren’t I clever and well read! Well not really, I’ve been trying to make up for the last ten years while travelling in and out of Belfast on the bus.
At some level I’m sure that I’m posting this to impress you. But superficially at least I want you to see the books and authors that have been influencing my thinking, in order to give you a little context (easier, and more interesting than posting my life story).


  • “God’s New Community”, Graham Beynon
  • “Discovering Galatians”, Simon Jones
  • “The Bible and Other Faiths”, Ida Glaser
  • “Making Children Mind Without Losing Yours”, Kevin Leman

To Read

  • “Held”, Angie Nicol
  • “Revolution of Character”, Dallas Willard & Don Simpson
  • “Shining Like Stars”, Lindsay Brown


Films I recorded on VHS (remember those?) and then threw out in the belief that some day I’d be able to download them or watch them on demand or something:

  • Dead Poets’ Society
  • The Big Sleep
  • Casablanca
  • Much Ado about Nothing
  • Cyrano de Bergerac
  • Hamlet
  • The Mission
  • Waking Ned
  • Hi Fidelity
  • Meet Joe Black
  • Billy Elliott
  • An Ideal Husband
  • Crocodile Dundee
