Event description

Description

In her latest book, Holy Envy: Finding God in the Faith of Others, Barbara Brown Taylor, the renowned preacher and beloved New York Times bestselling author recounts her moving discoveries of finding the sacred in unexpected places while teaching world religions to undergraduates in rural Georgia. She weaves together stories from her classroom with reflections on how her own spiritual journey has been challenged and renewed by connecting with people of other traditions – even those whose truths are quite different than hers.

In conversation with Scot Sherman, Barbara Brown Taylor will discuss the promise of engagement with our spiritual neighbors, and how that engagement can strengthen our own faith.

Books will be available for purchase and signing after the program.

Conversations for the Common Good
Scot Sherman is the executive director of Newbigin House of Studies, and host of Conversations for the Common Good—public conversations with writers, artists, musicians and leading thinkers about the issues that divide us and the ideals that bring us together.

This event is jointly sponsored by Newbigin House of Studies and City Church San Francisco.
