The electrician’s children
How one family took Jesus’ conspiracy of hope across the globe.
by David Wilson
The Electrician’s Children is a memoir of three generations of an Irish family. It begins in remote, rural County Donegal in the 1920s and proceeds across five continents to the present day. The electrician’s two sons and one daughter, struck by their parents’ unpretentious faith, one by one became champions of the plain-spoken message of Jesus. Here they recount their adventures not only throughout Ireland and the UK but also in Russia, East Africa, East Asia, Western Europe and Pakistan. What impact will inequality, conflict in Northern Ireland, the arts, diplomacy, poverty, culture wars, burnout and personal tragedy have on how their counter-cultural message of hope and mercy is received?
