Event description

Description

What does an ancient bishop from north Africa have to say to 21st-century Europeans? In conversation with philosophers, novelists, and playwrights like Camus and Kerouac, philosopher and writer James K.A. Smith will suggest we are more “Augustinian” than we realise. Tracking the influence of Augustine on our quest for authenticity, Smith will introduce us to an Augustine we perhaps haven’t met before—and to a Christianity to consider before you stop believing.

This event will also mark the launch of Smith’s latest book, On the Road with Saint Augustine: A Real-world Spirituality for Restless Hearts (2019).

James K. A. Smith (PhD, Villanova University) is a popular speaker who has written many books, including Awaiting the King, Imagining the Kingdom, How (Not) to Be Secular, and the Christianity Today Book Award winners You Are What You Love, Desiring the Kingdom, and Who's Afraid of Postmodernism? He is professor of philosophy at Calvin University in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where he holds the Gary and Henrietta Byker Chair in Applied Reformed Theology and Worldview. He was editor in chief of Comment magazine from 2013 to 2018 and is now editor in chief of Image journal. Smith has written for Christianity Today, First Things, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and the Washington Post.

The event will be held at Theos, 77 Great Peter Street, SW1P 2EZ on Wednesday 25 September, doors open 6.30 for 7pm. Q&A and refreshments will follow the discussion. Our building is unfortunately not step free - please email us for more information if needed.
