About Christopher Sparkes

Christopher Sparkes was born in Birmingham in 1951, and lives in Hampshire, England. After lecturing in Higher and Further Education, he is now a freelance educator. He has run writing groups, a folk and poetry club, and managed a trout fishery.

In Keys of the Kingdom Holy Bible translation, the paths of old are revived and brought to light once again. It is designed to make Bible reading clear, so that everything is made comprehensible for everybody, and without impediments of archaic language. Subject headings and footnotes and appendices provide guidance and explanations and elucidations, always in mind of giving the witness of God and making everything clear to everybody, especially new students of the word of God.

The new and highly developed organic translation method brings to magnificent light, for the first time in the English language, the whole miracle of the Bible’s internal harmony, producing the richest fruits from the gardens of God. Old Testament books presented in the divinely authorised order, as preserved in Hebrew Bibles. New Testament translated from the best-known available Greek text of Byzantine preservation, believed the most accurate record.

Expect outstanding clarity in God-honouring, refreshing, contemporary, and highly readable literary style. Attractive design and layout, with efficient narrative paragraphing for prose sections, indented lineation for poetry sections. Hebrew names and titles of God transliterated for their richness, with English equivalents in footnotes and a clear explanatory appendix. Over 4,300 footnotes with cross-references, sources, and explanations; eight appendices, illustrating the dynamic truth of the prophets and apostles of God and Christ.

About Ian Scott

Singer-guitarist and writer Ian Scott will be singing a 45min uplifting set of Christmas carols, gospel and mixed covers for us this Sunday. He’ll also be talking about his faith and his book “The God Solution”

Typically Ian thrills audiences all around the UK with his superb double bill tribute to Neil Diamond and Tom Jones. Ian’s magnificent voice re-creates the emotion, excitement and passion of Diamond and Jones’s songs. Contact us if you would like to book him for your venue, party or event.

Relevant to this event, Ian is a Christian and has written about his beliefs under his real non-stage-name of Ian Stott. His biggest book is called “The God Solution – Are You Ready” available from Amazon HERE, and it will be available to purchase at this event.

Ian Stott was born in Moseley, Birmingham, in 1946 and became a travelling evangelist in 1986, with his Gospel band ‘After the Fall’ performing in prisons, remand homes, pubs, clubs, church halls, carnivals, fetes, festivals, handicapped homes and colleges all around the United Kingdom. After writing ‘Touching Glory’ as the title song for the 1994 Cross Rhythms Festival in Devon, Ian and the band received a record distribution deal with Kingsway Music. He wrote the songs for two more albums, and the band continued its evangelistic work for eleven years.

Ian has studied Bible Prophecy for thirty years and is now a full-time musician, working as a tribute act in the UK and worldwide. He has had songs and poems published during this period. Ian Stott is a layman, representing every man and brings a refreshing perspective to apologetics, with a dash of humour. He has a desire to reach people who know nothing about the Bible or what it contains. The God Solution – Are You Ready is a direct reply to militant atheism and The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins. The Book covers the evidence of God, secret societies, Bible prophecy and the deception, misinformation and corruption of the shadow governments and leading players of this world.
