Following a calling into ministry, which spanned 15 years, Anthony moved into consultancy, specializing in the problems Christians face working from a Kingdom of God perspective interfacing with the kingdom of this world. This in turn led to a career move into Further and Higher Education, both in teaching and research, particularly with the latter seeing how the communication barrier between enterprise, and colleges and universities could be effectively broken. Subsequently, he has focused on the biblical principles underlying the caring involvement of Christians in a broken society, and how best to approach social issues while retaining the integrity of the Gospel message.

Christopher Shell is married with three young daughters and a large (mostly Kenyan-Asian) family. He is chief UK bookbuyer for an international Christian retailer. He achieved a double first from Oxford, and a PhD from Cambridge in early Christian ecstatic experience, together with seven university prizes in various subjects from the two institutions. Although he loves everything Christian and loathes everything secular (because of the easily-measurable statistical catastrophes, particularly to families and pre-born human lives, that secularism inevitably brings in its wake), he finds the spiritual-battle tradition to be especially accurate and real (Christus Victor; armour of God; ‘knights of God’ as in scouting; the reality that even intelligent people are frequently deceived and act irrationally; some end on the winning side and some don’t).
Pamela Stevens was assistant to her father Steve Stevens, who, in his concern for the moral decline of the nation, was one of the founders of the Nationwide Festival of Light, now called CARE. He worked also alongside Mary Whitehouse, a leading campaigner who founded the National Viewers’ and Listeners’ Association. He wrote his autobiographical book, ‘Fighting for Love, Purity, Marriage and Family Life’ to put a fighting spirit into the readers to turn the tide. Pamela shares his concern for the state of the nation, shocked by its staggeringly faster than ever decline, and believes something can still be done.
