Stephen McAlpine works as part of the Third Space Ministry at City Bible Forum. Stephen has been reading, writing and reflecting ever since he can remember. His first published piece (the school year book of 1974) was his Grade 2 story about a family of mice being terrorised by a shark on the beaches of Perth. He has been a minister at several churches in his home state of Western Australia and in his writing dabbles in a number of fields, notably theology and culture, and the rapidly changing face of secularism in the West. His most recent book is entitled Being the Bad Guys. Steve has a 2:59:69 marathon to his name and finds that he is still chasing after the wind.
