Billy Fidget writes letters to God. And, somewhat unexpectedly, God writes back. After the traumatic events and dramatic reconciliation of THE BILLY FIDGET LETTERS life has got back to normal, but then Helen gets pregnant with their fourth child - and Tom gets caught selling drugs to schoolfriends. Billy just doesn't understand it.But, as ever, God has a plan - it's just not necessarily going to be an easy road.This follow-up to THE BILLY FIDGET LETTERS has just the same fearless honesty as the first book, so that through the ups and downs of Billy's spiritual career we can connect with the issues that face him and his family - and maybe learn something about ourselves along the way.

Live Like You Mean It

This energetic and engaging call to live life to the full offers you the chance to rethink what matters to you and why, and to do something about it.Too often we drift through life, going with the flow or being tossed by currents beyond our control, and failing to realise that if we would only fight for the life God meant us for life would be so much more fulfilling.Eric Delve, the well-known evangelist and organiser of the Detling Festival, here sets out a strong argument for intentional living, the need to engage positively with the choices that face us and the rewards it will bring if we do so.Along the way he challenges us to face up to who we really are, jettisoning pretence or fantasy, and to accept our humanity in its weakness and its high potential. Then he urges us to understand what God's purpose is for us and to let him guide us into the full life he wants for us - including standing firm through difficult times.Finally he issues a challenge to us all, to escape from the modern curse of individualism and accept the need - and wonderful opportunity - to pass on all we've learnt in life to colleagues, friends and families - because they're worth it, too.

Authors:

Billy Fidget is a feckless, foul-mouthed, forty-something, father of three who spends his life selling fast cars and seducing even faster women. When he is caught in the back of an Aston Martin DB7 with the wife of a gangster, he finds himself in very hot water indeed.With his life disappearing down the plughole faster than a bullet from a Glock 9mm, he remembers that once, long ago, he sang in his local church choir. In dire straits and out of sheer desperation, hard man Billy Fidget finds himself writing a letter - to God.In this fast moving, funny and yet wittily poignant book we see the harsh reality of what happens when the stuff hits the fan. On the surface Billy is successful - on the inside he harbours dark, dirty secrets. Will he succeed in conquering his demons or will he be consumed by his venal appetite for destruction?God only knows ... or does he?
