This book collates various 'purple patches' from Gordon Stirling's Page 13 series, published fortnightly in the Australian Christian, the Churches of Christ national publication, from 1979–1987. These aphoristic segments offer insight into the informing tonalities and thematic elements of Stirling's writing, presented here for engagement in a new time and way. Stirling's insights remain pertinent to current Churches of Christ culture and self-understanding. He offers apertures into the movement's identity and distinct witness by considering the nature and values of Christian faith, with a firm but generous grounding in Churches of Christ heritage. This is communicated with Stirling's characteristic down-to-earth manner, bold in confronting the complexities of human life, faith and relationality.
