ORDER ALEX'S BOOK HERE https://www.whsmith.co.uk/products/ou... ABOUT ALEX Stand-up-comedian turned priest’s tale of generosity and compassion to HarperNorth HarperCollins today announce the acquisition of Our Daily Bread: From Argos to the Altar – a Priest’s Story by Father Alex Frost. Jonathan de Peyer, senior commissioning editor, acquired World All Languages rights from Jane Graham-Maw of Graham Maw Christie for HarperNorth. The book will publish in hardback, ebook and audio in October 2022, with a foreword from fellow son of Burnley Alastair Campbell. Our Daily Bread is a warmly funny, intensely moving and personal account of the lives of an urban parish priest and his parishioners. De Peyer said: ‘Father Alex has written a wonderful book that reminds us of the bonds that can be forged between people in adversity. Unpretentious, faithful to the stories of those whose lives Alex has touched, funny, and above all timely, Our Daily Bread is a salve in this time of acute crisis.’ Father Alex Frost found his calling while running an Argos store in his native Burnley, moonlighting as a stand-up comedian. Once he became a priest, he quickly realised his 17,000 parishioners were in dire need of help. And so it was that during Covid he found himself running a food bank from a car park, helping the desperate amid his flock as the pandemic raged. Fr Alex’s down-to-earth style of ministry has struck a chord with people of all faiths, cultures and class, and amid the tragedy, addiction, illness and neglect, there also lies hope, joy and comedy. Our Daily Bread is about the lives of the characters that cross the threshold of any church. Through them it shows the continued service of the church for the poor and the marginalised. Frost said: ‘It’s such an honour to give a voice to some incredible people living through these tough times. It’s my wish that the book is read by anyone concerned with the effects of the pandemic and the cost of living crisis upon Britain’s poorest, and I truly hope it helps change things for the better. HarperNorth feels like a natural home with its mission to bring books from the North to the world.’The God Cast with Fr Alex Frost
