Matters of Life and Faith

“It’s calming and heartening to watch a father quietly sift his daily life for what is sacred.” – Helen Garner

Coventry Press released Matters of Life and Faith, a collection of personal essays, in June 2021. Author Michael McGirr says the book is a “treasure chest of wisdom and experience”, while Kerrie O’Brien, Senior Writer at The Age, says it’s “insightful and inspiring.”

Matters of Life and Faith collects together a decade’s worth of essays. As author and pastor Simon Carey Holt says, the book covers everything from “parenting to neighbourhood fruit picking, from poetry to a hospital waiting room, from prayer to depression. Along the way he reminds us that the life we have is sacred. All of it.”

Matters of Life and Faith is now available.
