Glendathecat, the Team Leader of the Revenge of the Llamas, has just published a book! It links the theme of Les Miserables to the story of the Gospels. Daily devotional readings are based around seven themes from Les Mis - Grace, Responsibility, Truth, Compassion, Fellowship, Darkness, and Reconciliation - interwoven with the narrative of the Gospels. Intended originally as a seven-week course for Lent, the book is entitled "Will you Join in Our Crusade?" and is published by Circle Books.

Some of you may not realise that Glendathecat is in fact a man (yep, lots of new llamas have got that wrong, including me wink ) - in his real non-llama life, Steve Mann is a Methodist minister who lives in Kent.

Will You Join Our Crusade? by Steve Mann is available from bookshops, from Amazon.com Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk Amazon.co.uk.

Wishing Glendathecat and Steve Mann much success with the book.

I may be neither cat nor Methodist (nor even llama), but I'm always glad to see a fellow Funtrivian get published!^_^

Very amazing. I'm joining the United Methodist Church this coming Sunday, fingers crossed. It's been a long time for me to find a body that God called me to be a part of but I finally found it.

Thanks to everyone for all the kind words. Some of you may be interested to learn that I've had a message from my publisher to say that the back end of this month they'll be running a 0.99c/0.99p promotion on the Kindle edition.
