Thought For The Weak_3D Cover

The best of Rev. Preben Andersen's popular column in the Free Press.

Thought for the Weak started as a regular column in the Free Press newspaper by the Reverend Preben Andersen. Now the best of his popular writings have been gathered into this treasury.

Preben’s column was beautifully Christian but with a gentle and often humorous style, attracting readers exploring faith and those unfamiliar with the Christian message, as well as followers of Jesus. His writings often draw on current national and local events for stories and illustrations, but his messages are firmly based on Scripture and are as relevant to us now as they were to the local community when they were written.

Find yourself at times amused, at times moved, at once challenged and encouraged, as you dig into this nourishing collection.

Woven into his monthly offering, his homespun stories of life, with current affairs, humour and a little bit of religion slipped in, make for an enjoyable and sometimes thought-provoking interval in the day.

About the Author

Preben Andersen

Preben Andersen

The Reverend Preben Andersen is a Methodist minister of religion who, at the age of 70, has recently retired from active ministry to concentrate on his life-long ambition of writing books. He is of Danish origin but domiciled in Britain since 1977. Living Through Lockdown is his debut, while his second book, Thought for the Weak, is scheduled to be published later in 2021.

He is married to Margaret, they live in Clevedon and have three adult children and numerous grandchildren, many of them living just across from the Severn Bridge. He enjoys writing, reading, walking, Scandinavian crime on TV, and he is hoping soon to join an outdoor bowling club for much needed exercise (says Margaret!)

His writing has proven to appeal to Christians and non-Christians alike and he has written numerous regular articles to the secular press over the years. His aim is always to point people to Christ but in a non-threatening and gentle and often humorous way.

Preben would love to hear from you at any time and has a reputation for replying promptly, so please do not hesitate to e-mail him on pwandersen@btinternet.com This can be for advice, with comments, or to hear more about what he has written over the years, in a non-commercial capacity, and with any profits mostly going to church charities.

Endorsements and Reviews

Rev. Gordon Greswell

Thought for the Weak sums up Preben Andersen. He is thoughtful of all, and especially those who are marginalized and on the edges of society. Each story oozes the ‘Great Dane’s’ consideration of real people, dogs, and the joy of being alive, all etched with his whimsical humour and good cheer. Not the fairy-tales of Hans Christian, but the lived life and faith of Reverend Andersen.

Gordon Hill

Having had monthly articles to prepare for a newspaper, I sympathise with Preben’s monthly brain-drain to think of something interesting, and something that will keep the reader willing to finish to the bottom of the page. With Thought for the Weak, Preben Andersen has managed this beautifully. Woven into his monthly offering, his homespun stories of life, with current affairs, humour and a little bit of religion slipped in, make for an enjoyable and sometimes thought-provoking interval in the day. To include humour in religion of any sort, is an art only practised by a few wise writers. Surely our God or Gods, whoever they may be, must see the funny side of human life, or we would never have the joy of family life, or of companionship or the ability to laugh. I recommend Thought for the Weak, not to be read at one ‘go’, but sipped like a fine wine, enjoyed drop by drop.
