The Anglican Diocese of Qu'Appelle and the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Regina invite you to join Frederick Bauerschmidt in conversation about his book

"The Love That is God: An Invitation to Christian Faith."

Sunday, Jan. 14 at 7pm

St. Paul's Anglican Cathedral, 1861 McIntyre Street, Regina

All are welcome.

Bauerschmidt is a Roman Catholic deacon of the Archdiocese of Baltimore and professor of theology at Loyola University, Maryland.

2023 winner of the Michael Ramsey Prize. The Michael Ramsey Prize, was set up to encourage the most promising contemporary theological writing and to identify it for a wider Christian readership. The prize is named after the 100th Archbishop of Canterbury, Michael Ramsey, a prolific writer himself; and was inaugurated by Rowan Williams in 2005.

“God is love is the radical claim of Christianity,” writes Frederick Bauerschmidt at the beginning of this little meditation on the essentials of Christian faith. In a rich yet accessible style reminiscent of C. S. Lewis and G. K. Chesterton, Bauerschmidt breathes life back into that claim, drawing from Scripture, great Christian and non-Christian writers of the past, and his own lived experience to show just how counter-cultural and subversive Christianity is actually meant to be. Eschewing the abstract and dogmatic in favour of the relational and inviting, he offers something for everyone, from lifelong churchgoers and students of religion to the growing population of “nones” among younger generations who are increasingly seeking spiritual fulfillment outside of institutional Christianity.
