We are pleased to announce a book launch event in celebration of our Assistant Principal’s new book! Join us on Monday November 8th at 7:30pm for an evening celebrating Rev. Dr. Lina Toth’s valuable new book in the After Christendom series. We will hear from Lina and 4 responses to her excellent new book, Singleness and Marriage After Christendom.
From the publisher (Cascade Books):
This book follows the changes in the practice of marriage and singleness, from those early days of the Christian movement to our modern preoccupation with romance and coupledom as essential ingredients of a happy, fulfilled life. It argues that the current surge in the number of single people is actually an opportunity for us to reconsider both singleness and marriage in the larger context of a community of faith.
Lina Toth is Assistant Principal and Lecturer in Practical Theology at the Scottish Baptist College. A musician and artist as well as a theologian, she is particularly interested in ethics, spirituality, and the theology of culture. Her second love is history—that is, people and stories which have shaped the world we live in today.
