The University Church Book Club meets on Tuesday evenings in term time, and is an informal gathering at which we discuss short works of fiction or collections of stories and tales. In Hilary term 2019, we will be discussingThe Orthodox Heretic: And other impossible tales, by Peter Rollins. Here Rollins retells familiar Christian, Jewish and Buddhist parables with contemporary twists, to show how they disrupt doctrinal religion and well-meaning piety, and invite us to embrace life’s paradoxes. The first set of parables is entitled 'Beyond Belief', the second 'G-O-D-I-S-N-O-W-H-E-R-E', and the third 'Transfigurations'.
Each week, we invite a speaker to introduce the story and help us think about the issues which it provokes.
