About the Trailer

Pete Greig's first visit to Cape St Vincent inadvertently sparked a movement. But the day he finally, hesitantly returned was to be even more remarkable. 

Ladies & gentlemen, dim the lights, roll the camera, cue the 'Dirty Glory' story.

  • GET a sneak peak of the first chapter
  • SEE the illustrations (below)
Before I was even through the introduction I could feel my heart coming alive.
— Banning Liebscher - Jesus Culture

Each section of Dirty Glory boasts an illustration by the Irish designer Ben Connolly. I appealed for artists on Twitter, and a lot of nice people kindly offered their services. But the minute I saw a poster Ben had made for one of my favourite musicians, Glen Hansard, I knew he was the guy for me! And then I learned that Ben and his wife also just happen to lead a House of Prayer!

You may notice that Ben's illustrations are a little oblique. They're deliberately not obvious. For instance, PRAYER is represented by... a buffalo. MISSION? That'll be a pirate. And JUSTICE is a geeky guy dancing with a girl in a bikini. You'll have to read the book to find out why!

#1-PRESENCE

#2 - PRAYER

Fresh, un-compromising and energising. Brilliantly written and fun to read.
— Dr Johannes Hartl (Augsburg House of Prayer)
