Identical twins John and Paul Cox have more in common than their looks.

The retired duo, both of whom worked in parish ministry, have had books published by Kevin Mayhew - on exactly the same day.

John’s Critical Friend, which provides information and guidance to help school governors fulfil their role and A Day Away, in which Paul Cox contributes his valuable experience in planning parish away days and study groups, were published on the same day this January.

While John has been writing for Kevin Mayhew for many years, and is also a commissioning editor for the company, Paul has only recently joined his twin in writing. With such extensive experience in ministry, writing seemed the natural next step for both brothers and their lists of titles have been well received critically.

Other recent publications include their valuable contributions to More Sermons on Difficult Subjects, which John also edited. Elsewhere, John offers a fresh and exciting resource for those leading and speaking during the season of Lent in The Week that Changed the World.
