Press Release: February 2021

Last year Phil Heaps wrote his sell-out book ‘Who Stole Christmas?’. Now, with people looking anxiously forward and wondering when lockdown will lift, he’s written ‘What A Comeback!’.

“Who Stole Christmas really touched a nerve,” says Phil, who is Co-Pastor of Highbury Baptist Church in London. “Even the title perfectly captured how many folks were feeling. But now people are asking, ‘Will Easter be the turning point?’ It’s the perfect opportunity for Christians to show that Easter is good news, whether or not life returns to normal.”

Phil wrote ‘What A Comeback!’ to help and encourage churches to connect with their communities at a time when the tragedy and uncertainty of the pandemic might make friends and neighbours more receptive to a message of hope. Its clear-thinking, warm-hearted style makes it ideal for widespread distribution. Churches across the country gave away thousands of copies of ‘Who Stole Christmas?’ to their friends and neighbours and ‘What A Comeback!’ hopes to reach an even bigger audience. ‘What A Comeback!’ works as a great follow-on book to ‘Who Stole Christmas?’, restarting the conversation, and reengaging interest ahead of a hoped-for return to more normal church outreach and activities.

“This little book describes a journey that changed everything, and invites the readers to become part of that story,” says Phil. “Whatever happens with the vaccine rollout or the new covid variants, Easter can still be the great turning point in people’s lives… because it was the great turning point in human history.”

‘What A Comeback!’ is now available to preview on PDF and order via its website,
