James Corden father retires from Christian book ministry

by Marcus Jones

The father of actor and TV personality James Corden has announced his retirement after 28 years selling Christian books.

Malcom Corden became a sales agent in 1991 after a career in an RAF military band.

Over the years he's represented Christian Crafts, ICC, New Wine Ministries, Cedar Trading, Kevin Mayhew and Lion Sales Services.

He's won numerous awards for his work.

Speaking to Together magazine, he said: "It has been my privilege and joy to work for the last 28 years serving and getting to know so many wonderful, dedicated and talented people within the ministry of God's word.

"I am grateful to God for so many treasured memories associated with serving you and will indeed miss you all so much."

Corden's son James, who rose to fame in the BBC sitcom Gavin and Stacey, now hosts a late night chat show in the US.

Malcom has made several appearances on the show, guest hosting parts of the show.

For a monthly gift of £8 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.
