frontcoverfinalThe Rescue Mission: The Bible as a Gripping, Thrilling, Emotional Page-turner.

A re-telling of the Bible’s grand narrative from the perspective of the Trinity, this book by Pete Atkinson of Christian Heritage in Cambridge is a gripping, thrilling, emotional page-turner.



‘This is an imaginatively original and brilliantly executed piece of storytelling which presents the Bible as you’ve never read it before. If you’ve already read the Bible cover-to-cover, this novel will challenge and inform you – If you’ve never imagined yourself reading the Bible, this could be the start of a beautiful discovery. Ambitious, captivating, and definitely a worthwhile read’.Amazon reviewer
‘Dramatic. Lively. Well-informed. Pete Atkinson’s retelling of the Bible story is different from many others already available and whether used as a script for public performance or read privately, its vitality will engage people. They’ll learn the individual stories, their setting and the big story all at the same time. I enjoyed reading this book and I’m sure you will too.’ Derek Tidball, Evangelical Alliance.
‘The Rescue Mission by Pete Atkinson is a fresh, imaginative, dramatic and partly poetic presentation of the Biblical account of the history of mankind and God’s love. It is very creative while remaining loyal to the meaning of the Biblical text. The energy and emotion of this book can bring the reader into a greater love for God’ Ellis Potter, Author and Pastor
‘As a published author I know how hard it is to come up with an original approach to well-handled material. But Pete Atkinson has done it! This is an imaginative and novel approach to the greatest story ever told that will captivate those unfamiliar with its subject matter, and educate those who thought they were. It is a very unusual creative work – I’ve not come across anything like it before. I love the insights and connectivity of threads across scripture, and I commend it to your attention’ Pete Gilbert, Author
‘The Rescue Mission is a genre defying book: part epic, part poem, part drama, part novel, part commentary; it is genuinely original and radically imaginative. It tells the Bible story in a multi-perspectival way: God’s, the Bible characters’ and ours’, which not only sharpens our understanding but engages our emotions at both the tragedy and the hope involved in the human drama’ Ian Cooper, L'abri
