God Created Humanism

Dr Theo Hobson looks at humanism and questions its secular credentials. In his¬†book “God created humanism” he, in Rowan Williams’s words, “invites us to recognise that the core moral values of liberal modernity did not fall ready made from a secular heaven but or the deposit of a long theological tradition. But … he makes it clear that this is a challenge to contemporary religious complacency at least as much as to a smug and patronising secularity”.

We are very pleased to welcome Theo to Sherborne to help us explore the relationship between Christianity and the church on the one hand and the increasingly secular world around us.

Theo Hobson is a theologian and author who writes for both The Guardian and The Spectator.

We look forward to seeing you.
