The Invading Gospel by Jack Clemo
Reviewed by Jonathan Bellamy
Discover a new author from the past! Jack Clemo was an award winning author and poet in the early part of the twentieth century. First published in 1958, now re-published in 2012 and available through Cross Rhythms Direct, The Invading Gospel is an intellectual and insightful chronicle of his long journey of spiritual surrender. Writing in a similarly intellectual mode as CS Lewis or GK Chesterton, and as a contemporary of those great spiritual writers, The Invading Gospel is loosely autobiographical and deeply honest about Jack Clemo's spiritual journey through paganism, mysticism and eroticism. Describing the state of the church in the pre-war years and bemoaning its evangelical weakness, The Invading Gospel reveals a rare intellect able to weave theological understanding with humble transparency.
