nviteInvite To Book Launch for ‘Fire and Faith’

4.00pm music, 4.45pm launch, April 14.

Raven Hotel 400 Montague Rd, West End

We would like to invite you to the launch of Fire and Faith’. Based on real-life events, this historical novel tells the story of Sebastian Castellio, a brilliant theologian, whose calls for tolerance and dialogue, against the religious extremism of the sixteenth century, sparked a violent backlash from his erstwhile colleague, John Calvin, who did his best to destroy him.

We were going to launch Fire and Faith with the author, our good friend Kristen Jack, Former International Coordinator at Servants to Asia’s Urban Poor, who wrote it while dying with terminal cancer, but he died the day after it was published. So, we will launch the book in his memory. This story is Kristin’s legacy: showing how one person can offset dogma with doubt, oppose forces of conformity with freedom of conscience, and confront savage Christian extremism with gracious Christlike nonviolence.

Richard Rohr says, ‘Fire and Faith’ is ‘wonderful’. Check out our invite and join us on Sunday April 14 at 4pm for music by Tim Hewlett, then at 4.45pm for the launch hosted by Theology On Tap, at Raven Hotel, 400 Montague Rd, West End, Brisbane.
