Towards reconciliation - new book by Professor Paul Gifford
Paul Gifford, Buchanan Professor emeritus, has just published a new book, Towards Reconciliation. Understanding Violence and the Sacred after René Girard - Cambridge: James Clarke & Co. (Lutterworth Press), March 2020.
The launch was problematic in the era of social distancing. A launch dialogue event was planned in Coventry Cathedral, but it was cancelled, and there will be a series of short youtube clips instead. A dialogue with Rowan Williams is scheduled in Cambridge on 10 June 2020. Other events are planned: in Lambeth, Oxford, Edinburgh, St Andrews and Belfast – as and when travel and face to face dialogue will become again possible.
