An event to mark the launch of Apologetics without Apology, a new book by Elaine Graham (Grosvenor Research Professor, University of Chester, President of the
CTS and Canon Theologian, Chester Cathedral)

Panellists: Deidre Brower (Nazarene Theological College, Manchester) Rosie Dawson (BBC Religion & Ethics) Paul Middleton (University of Chester)

Professor Graham will make a summary of her latest book; the three panellists will each contribute their comments followed by responses, questions and discussion. Copies of the book will be available for purchase at a special discount.

Elaine Graham, our President, is the Grosvenor Research Professor at the University of Chester and Canon Theologian of Chester Cathedral. Apart from the book to be launched this evening her most recent book Between a Rock and a Hard Place: Public Theology in a Post-Secular Age (SCM, 2013) was greeted by critics as ‘the most significant volume of its kind in the last two decades’. She says “As a practical theologian, I am interested in the relationship between beliefs and actions, and whether religious commitment really makes a difference in today’s world. In my teaching and research, I try to encourage people to connect the values of faith to a critical engagement with the dilemmas of everyday life”.
