More About the Author

David Hayward was baptized Anglican as a baby, came to faith in a Baptist church when he was a teenager, changed to Pentecostal in his late teens, married another Pentecostal named Lisa, was ordained Presbyterian, pastored a Vineyard church, and planted others.

He has a Masters in Theological Studies from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, as well as a Diploma in Religious Studies and Ministry from McGill University in Montreal.

But in 2010 David left the professional paid clergy. He is still passionate about how people can find and follow their own spiritual path with courage and joy, as well as in how people can freely gather and form community in healthy ways. He is also passionate about articulating an intellectually valid and conscientious theory about spirituality.

David started a blog called nakedpastor in 2006, and initiated his public analysis of religion, religious community and spirituality through his writings, art and cartoons. Thousands of people are challenged and entertained by nakedpastor every day. He also launched an online community called The Lasting Supper where people can learn and live spiritual independence.

His art, cartoons, writings and book have found their way all around the world.

David lives with his wife Lisa near Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada. They have 3 grown children.

Format: Paperback
This is David's first collection of cartoons, 101 of them, and I hope many more follow. Cartoons just work! They help us laugh at ourselves, and then they help us think outside the box. In a cartoon, serious topics can hide behind lighthearted drawings.

And David's work is funny. LOL funny. As the Naked Pastor, he bares his soul (not his body, sorry) about problems in the Church ... often, problems that result from rigid rules or non-acceptance or unfounded assumptions about the nature of God. Most are annotated with a bit of the thought process that went into their creation.

This book is in no way disrespectful to the Church. David is an insider; he has completed masters in Theological Studies and in Ministry and Religion, and has been pastor of several churches over 25 years. That's plenty of time for cartoonistic opinions to form, right? David admits that for this book he has purposefully chosen favorites among his less controversial drawings; rants against church vision and mission statements, and cartoons addressing the gay issue, have been omitted, so we may be drinking "Hayward light" at this time. Next time, David, lay it on us straight. We can take it.

I sat with some friends one night and went over this books until laughter created tears. It's a look at church life without the fig leaves.

I am a long time visiter to David Hayward's website, [...], and have finally gotten around to ordering his new book. I just have to say that I absolutely loved it and can't wait for whatever else he'll eventually publish. His work is genuine and heartfelt with quite a bit of humor thrown in as well, something the world definitely needs. There is no way I can recommend his work, either this or from his website, enough.

All pastors, Naked or Not, want to Communicate. David Hayward is an effective communicator through his Cartoon drawings concerning many of the things people experience when involved with a Christian church. Get it, ingest it, share it. You'll be glad you did.

I love the little cartoons in this book. I am also a fan of his web site.

If I have any complaints about the book, it's that he left out so much of his cartoons, and especially that he admits to avoiding certain topics that he has written cartoons for: church vision, money, and the gay issue.
The only other issue is the layout of a few two- and three-panel cartoons: becaues the book is oriented vertically and the two- & three- panel cartoons were published horizontally, they had to be reduced in size that are periously small for these old eyes of mine.

Having said that, what is in the book is wonderful, frustrating, & funny. And just when you find yourself pointing at others' bad church habits, the next panel stings you with something you yourself are guilty of.

Highly recommended for anyone honest about the foibles of the church and its utterly human side.

The poignancy of David Hayward's drawings never ceases to amaze me. I force myself to only look at one or two at a time,mand to let the image's messages sink in and take root. This is hard to do, for I have the urge to view them all in one sitting. I ended up ordering a print of one for my wife.

David has a way of drawing pictures that speak a thousand words that I want to say. He gently challenges much of the status quo in the westernised church whilst revealing a tenderness for spirtuality and god. Truly inspiring.
