For an excellent review of John’s book go to Crosslights
“The church’s theologians unfortunately are no help to clergy and lay people who are confronting difficult questions in today’s world because they see their task as defending orthodoxy rather than the disinterested search for truth. On the other hand this book is courageous, honest, helpful and hopeful. You won’t find anything else quite like it.” Rev Colin Johnston
The sessions will begin at 7 pm sharp. Tea and coffee will be available mid-session.
All are welcome, and all points of view are respected.
