Prof Denys Turner Lecture on Herbert McCabe, St Mary's University, 28th October 2015

Dear All

Please see poster above for information on the Denys Turner lecture at St Mary's next week. If you are unfamiliar with his work can I warmly recommend 'The Darkness of God' which should be on every reading list for every course on mysticism (Christian and non-Christian). Whereas I don't agree with everything he argues for there it is a key book and intellectually rigorous. He shares such rigour with the work of the late British Dominican, Herbert McCabe OP. Again,  non uncontroversial, but a bracing analyst of the nature of faith. Anyone who wants to engage seriously with Gospel living should read 'God Matters' and 'God Still Matters'. The lecture will be free followed by a drinks reception in Prof Turner's honour and starts at 5pm next Wednesday. Can you email Steph Modak if you are interested in coming so that we can fix numbers. Her email is

Another date for your diaires - on 4th November at 12.30 the Ecumenical Patriarch will give the inaugural St Mary's lecture in our chapel. Again all are welcome to this free event. I shall post some more details on that shortly.

All good wishes
