A Shaking Reality: Bishop Peter Price in Conversation with Christine Roberts
- Course Dates: Wed 31 October 2018, 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm
Join Peter Price, former Bishop of Bath and Wells in conversation with Christine Roberts about his new book A Shaking Reality. Christine formerly directed a retreat house in North Wales, and works in counselling and spirituality.
The book features reflections and prayers to be read on each day of Advent. Each reflection is written that we may be ‘shaken and brought to a realisation of our selves’, in order to gain a new understanding of God’s promise of redemption and release.
“Christmas is so often not only commercialised but domesticated. The weeks before are busy and demanding. Yet in Christian thinking they open our eyes to the shattering and shaking work of God in taking human form as Jesus. Nothing could be more dramatic. Peter Price gently, but with great firmness, calls us to be shaken by Jesus, to have our senses stirred, to be awakened to the power of the birth of Jesus, to hear the call to celebration and the warning of judgement. It is an eye-opening book and I commend it warmly.” – Justin Welby
