Grace Davie is one of the most authoritative, balanced and accessible commentators on modern religion in Britain. Her take is that modern British people can’t quite do with or without religion, and markedly value a “weak established church.”
In her acclaimed recent book she suggests two contemporary modes of ‘being church’ in the Church of England: “conservative enclaves” and open institutions – often cathedrals. There is much to explore in a presentation and conversation ….. All will be very welcome.
by The Dean of Leicester, David Monteith

How to Read the Bible (without switching off your brain)
by Simon J. Taylor
£9.99 • paper • ISBN 978 0 281 07380 1• 17 September 2015
The book will be launched at Evensong in the Cathedral on Sunday 13th September at 6.00pm with drinks following the service.
Copies of the book will be available at a special launch day price!
This book offers Bible reading for everyone. It speaks to those who already read the Bible but find themselves asking why; and to those who don’t read the Bible but would like to if only it weren’t so strange. It explains what the Bible is, offers an overview of what is found in it, and addresses questions people ask, such as:
- Does science disprove the Bible?
- Why is there so much violence in the Bible?
- What does the Bible say about sex?
