God uses transition times for our good

The disruptive seasons of life – those transition times in which we have left one season of stability but not yet arrived at the next – can be times of great disorientation. Yet, for good or for ill, they are also the most transformative. In The Space Between, Mark Bradford provides the reader with a biblical and theological understanding of such seasons of life, connects them with the resources to live faithfully through them, and offers strength and hope for the journey.

‘A timely book for the pandemic age… A wise companion for the tough seasons of life.’
James Lawrence, CPAS leadership principal

‘This is not a book to read all in one go! Gems keep tumbling out of the cupboard and they need to be picked up one at a time before moving to the next… This is hard to beat!’
Julian Henderson, bishop of Blackburn

‘A wonderfully honest and human book that enables readers to find God in the disturbing experiences of change and disruption… The rich wisdom of this book will offer both a healing balm and a source of courage to all who engage with it.’
Philip North, bishop of Burnley

‘This book is important… It tackles difficult times in our lives with honesty and clarity – which will be a relief to those who read it.’
Canon Dr Christina Baxter

‘This book draws on the Bible, on the lives of saints old and new, and on the author’s deep experience to invite us afresh to engage in the precious things God is doing when the temptation is to focus elsewhere. This is encouraging, wise, and helpful.’
Mark Tanner, bishop of Chester

‘In a highly engaging way, Mark extends our awareness and draws our attention to God’s work of grace in the whole of life – not only the highs and lows, but the rest of life, where we are on a journey, waiting, confused or disoriented. This is a guide for a truly whole-life discipleship.’
Paul Harcourt, New Wine national leader and vicar of All Saints Woodford Wells

‘An apt resource and encouragement that we are not alone in experiencing these seasons.’
Jo McKee, CPAS director of the Arrow Programme and archbishops’ evangelist, vicar of St Andrew’s Radcliffe
