Star of stage and screen David Suchet will be reading the entire Gospel of Mark at St Paul’s Cathederal just before Holy Week begins.
Suchet, best known as the moustached eponymous hero of Agatha Christie’s Poirot, will be giving the dramatic reading on the 28th March, Hodder Faith has announced.
“The evening will be a dramatic reading of the Gospel, without commentary, read by one of the great actors of our times,” a statement said.
It adds: “David Suchet is one of the best-known and best-loved actors of his generation… Raised without religion, he was converted by reading Romans 8 in a hotel Bible.”
