I was introduced to Mike Riddell (Godzone) by you Jonny back in the 90’s he totally transformed my approach to God and Spirituality - he was a true prophet of the modern day - and possibly the most infulential and inspirational writers I’ve come across - I’ve used more quotes from Godzone in my talks (when I was a vicar) than any other book, including the Bible

Really sad to hear about his death, although he’d probably have a quip about it

For me, he untangled the mess then institutional Church has got itself into, he spoke with truth, integrity, wisdom and love

And I’m grateful and honoured to have interacted with him - I’ll treasure the emails I still have from him :-)
