The success of Schott's Original Miscellany has been a publishing phenomenon. It has spawned other books on food and drink and on sport but nothing on Christianity. This book steps into the breach and offers a wonderful, often amusing mix of trivia, random facts and lists of information about the Christian faith. For example, which are the most unusual saints? What are the ten commandments of the road? What are the things that God hates? A multi-layered cornucopia of fascinating facts, Summon's Christian Miscellany enables readers to peek at the breadth and depth of a transforming faith. Christianity throws up so many issues and questions - here is an attempt to answer just a few.
