Last night, the Knox Centre hosted the launch of four books:
- The Church in Post-Sixties New Zealand: decline, growth and change, and Losing Our Religion? Changing Patterns of Believing and Belonging in Secular Western Societies, both by my colleague Kevin Ward. And,
- Descending on Humanity and Intervening in History: Notes from the Pulpit Ministry of P.T. Forsyth, and Hallowed be Thy Name: The Sanctification of All Things in the Soteriology of P.T. Forsyth, by yours truly.
John Stenhouse and John Roxborogh spoke to Kevin’s books, and Mike Crowl and Murray Rae spoke to mine. All did a super job. It was a great night. Post-launch, the two authors (and a few others) then partied on with Chinese food and whiskey. The gastronomical combo seemed to work well.
Mike has since posted what he really would have liked to have said, some reflections on his experience of reading P T Forsyth.
