Against The Grain

Garth Hewitt's autobiography 
Garth writes redemption songs and then sings them without fear. His voice comes through clearly in these pages, challenging us by his witness to act for justice. His is a brave voice, needed more than ever in a fearful world and in a sometimes timid church.

Garth says of his book Against The Grain, “My book is a journey that reflects choices and influences both musical and spiritual.”

The book covers stories about music, theology, and why he made various choices. He takes time to speak about various aspects of his songs and recording.


There’s a chapter about the Greenbelt Festival and Garths involvement in the early days; one about his time at EMI and chapters about when he started to reflect more on issues of justice.

The book includes a chapter on theology called ‘Stealing Jesus Back’; one about Garth’s days at All Hallows On The Wall when he was with Christian Aid as well as Amos; a chapter on Palestine entitled ‘From St Jerome to Banksy’, and of course one on Amos Trust.

Against The Grain is a mixture which hopefully paints a picture that has something important to say about the road to justice and hope.

Garth Hewitt writes redemption songs and then sings them without fear. His voice comes through clearly in these pages, challenging us by his witness to act for justice.

His is a brave voice, needed more than ever in a fearful world and in a sometimes timid church. Please God, it will help us sing redemption songs of our own. 
The Revd Lucy Winkett
