There is a real shortage of booklets like this, which are simple without being simplistic, and have the sort of attractiveness which the personal stories show on your first and last pages. I do congratulate you, and I hope this little booklet will lead many to faith.

Why on earth would I want to be a Christian? is a great resource, from a gifted evangelist, to help share the gospel effectively.”

Simon Ponsonby

Pastor of Theology, St Aldates Church, Oxford, UK


When you hear from Mark Jackson you know you’re hearing something completely authentic. Here’s his clear and simple introduction to the truth that has changed his life and that he loves to share.

Rev Dr Sarah Hartley


“Mark Jackson and Peter Jones of Fishermanden Ministries have been reaching out intelligently, faithfully and fruitfully for years to lost people of all ages and stations.  They are members of a Church nicknamed ‘a House of Prayer for all nations at the heart of Oxford’ and as such pray and work ceaselessly for revival across the world.

I heartily commend this book to be given to and read by any asking the vital question: ‘Why on earth would I want to be a Christian?’”
