Dave Hopwood

Dave Hopwood - Writer, Speaker, Bible communicator

Dave loves communicating the Bible using contemporary media, humour and stories. He is author of a series of books retelling the Bible including Man of Joy & Sorrow (all about Jesus), Songs of Faith and Feeling (the Psalms revisited), Top Stories (the Parables of Jesus) and The Wacky Rhyming Bible (fun Bible stories for children). He passionately believes that the Bible is here for all of us ordinary people, and that it is earthy, honest, funny and incisive in the way it tells of God's interaction with the world. In his work he aims to strip away the religious language and any unnecessary reverence which puts distance between the Good Book and the people.

These days he spends much of his time retelling the Bible drawing on anything that seems useful, TV, movies, internet, adverts, news stories etc. He speaks at various places here, there and everywhere and regularly publishes ideas, resources and material via his website. You can also follow him on Twitter - @DaveHoppy.
