Keep the Faith, Baby!: Bishop Reflects on Faith, Evangelism, Race Relations and Community

Wilfred Woods was born and brought up in Barbados, and this book is drawn from his own experiences of faith and life in Britain. Humorous illustrations as well as poignant and painful stories are threaded into a rich pattern of Christian truth and teaching - told though sermons and talks. Bible passages and reflections deepen our faith and help us to hold on to it and do what the title urges us to: 'Keep the Faith, Baby'.
