Book Study Groups

Tuesdays: 11th, 18th and 25th June 2019

With Professor David Thomas, Canon Theologian.

Religion is no good and should be abolished. This is a constant refrain among some critics of religion. Rupert Shortt, Religion editor of the Times Literary Supplement, examines it in Does Religion do more Harm than Good? (SPCK, May 2019), a mere three chapters covering 76 pages.

A book such as this calls for discussion, and you are invited to do just this on Tuesdays 11th, 18th and 25th June. Each meeting will last one hour, from 6:15 to 7:15 pm.

To attend: Please email: The book is available in the Cathedral bookshop, and also online.

Added to this, on 2 July the Dean and I will examine historical and contemporary versions of Christology (questions about the humanity and divinity of Christ) – same time and place. You are welcome at this, whether you have attended the Book Group or not.
