This book is an attempt to bring comfort to anyone who may feel lonely, abandoned, or simply living on the margins of life. People who may be suffering from a feeling of having been forgotten by society and even by God. I have written it in the form of a series of reflections that engage with such feelings and try to offer a healing response. The book began life as a series I wrote, and still write, for residents of local care homes, where people have been locked down and felt locked away from those they love and who love them.

More broadly this book also deals with issues that anyone may be forced to confront in their daily lives and links them to key moments in the Bible where we need to get support from each other and to experience the loving wisdom and commitment of God to every one of us. Each reflection focuses on a single issue and is composed of a Biblical passage (usually), a personal reflection, and finally a brief prayer of encouragement.

I have avoided complex Biblical analysis and obscure theology. Each chapter is complete in itself, so this is a book that can be dipped into as well as read in sequence. My hope is that what I have written may in some small way be of help and sustenance to people who need to know deep down that, whatever life may throw at them, they are always Unforgotten by the God who created and loves them. Because, as Isaiah reassures us, God ‘has written your name on the palm of his hands, from all eternity.’

Keith Ravenscroft is married with four grown-up children and three grandchildren. He studied English Literature (with an admixture of Philosophy) at Cambridge University and then spent most of his working life as a writer and creative director in advertising agencies in the UK and North America.

From a position of hardline atheism, Keith gradually came to faith in his middle years and trained as a Lay Minister in the Church of England. He has been engaged in preaching, teaching, and leading worship since 2007.

He and his wife Avril, a graphic artist and now an Anglican priest, have worked together as well as lived together for many years and during that time have been residents in Canada and Italy, as well as in the UK.

Apart from music, Keith’s great passions are Philosophical Theology and Christian Spirituality as expressed within the writings of poets and mystics throughout the ages.

    Keith Ravenscroft’s gentle book “Unforgotten” gives sound theological teaching in simple language. Weaving his thoughts with some of the traditional hymns, and favourite Psalms he speaks straight to the heart, but without avoiding the hard messages of the Bible and indeed of life. This book will be invaluable in my pastoral work with the elderly, but I can see it would have value and offer encouragement to anyone seeking reassurance on their journey of faith. I highly recommend it.
