After five years teaching (English and Religious Studies), 10 years in magazine journalism, and 20 years as a BBC producer (where he became Head of Religious Broadcasting), British writer David Winter was ordained in the Church of England. Over the last 40 years he has published 40 books -one novel, two biographies, an autobiography, an anthology of poetry about Jesus (The Poet’s Christ) and several books on religious topics. His main interest now is unpacking the Bible for modern readers and applying its message to modern life. He reviews books and writes a regular column for the Church Times and a syndicated monthly column for the website Parish Pump. Winter is married and has three adult children from his first wife (who died in 2001), and two grandchildren.
