About the Author…


Chris and Christine Smith.

Christine is married to Chris, a minister of the Gospel.

Christine is from the West Midlands and Chris from Manchester. They both come from ministerial families, both their Fathers Pastors.

Christine & Chris met at their annual denominational conference. Their own Fathers conducted their wedding.

In the 1960’s Christine & Chris travelled throughout UK & Ireland as ‘Kris & Kristine. The Sunshine Evangelists’ Christine was a children’s evangelist during this time.

In 1970, they both received a separate and remarkable call to take the Gospel to gypsies living in the caves of Almeria, Spain during the cruel rule of General Franco. To their surprise, they were the first to arrive in the area with the gospel and Bibles, and found themselves faced with extreme opposition and danger. Christine’s experience of this time is in her first book Lost in Faith. It could take faith to…

*Chris & Christine are the founders of Kings Evangelical Divinity School. Their eldest son Calvin, is now Director.

*They were the first to take the Gospel and Bibles to virtually unknown and poverty-stricken parts of Southern Spain.

*Christine was used of the Lord to establish several fellowships and churches, in a little known and spiritually barren part of Spain.

*Mission Trips: The Smiths have taken much aid to Romania in double trailer trucks, and have been caring and catering for the homeless for some years.

*Christine has published three books and her next is due 2018. Her books have gained a reputation as being rare ‘unputdownables’

Christine’s burdens:

My greatest passion is God’s word. When I was unexpectedly detached from all Christian influence, only having my Bible, I discovered less familiar Scriptures that challenged what I had always thought faith was! Those Scriptures, and a different aspect of faith, brought me through those unexpected trials.

My aim when I write is to be persuasive, enlighten, challenge and to encourage, but always with Scriptures to back up everything I say.

I have a particular burden for women going through a trial of faith, this is the reason I started my Christian Agony Aunt which has helped many women secretly share a  problem www.christianagonyaunt.wordpress.com

I like to promote wearing a cross seeing how the cross is becoming a symbol of hate and offense. The Apostle Paul put it long ago just as it is today… “I tell you weeping, that they are enemies of the cross of Christ” (Philippians 3:18).

My interests and hobbies:

Gods Word is what interests and excites me most. I have kept a devotional journal for as long as I can remember and I highly recommend it; writing messages on trials of faith; my Christian Agony Aunt for women; worship music with a particular taste for: Helen Shapiro’s Messianic cd’s, the Oslo choir, Songs Of Praise, Maranatha singers, Gaither vocal band, Guy Penrod, The Cathedrals, 2nd half quartet, Libera, Lion of Judah; playing the piano & accordion; my grandchildren; keeping up with world news to know how to pray and what to write; growing cacti as cacti need little care as we travel; walking; swimming; baking; watching a classic or true movie…

looking after my hubby, Chris!
