We are excited to launch a major new book by our Honorary University Chaplain, Chris Scott. The Jesus Myth: a pschologist's viewpoint takes a look at the nature of myth as a carrier of deep truth and that we all have our own internal myths about ourselves and life. He will be joined by Revd Dr Terry Biddington, Dean of Spiritual Life, to explore what was and is meant by the term Messiah, both in the 1st century and now.

Terry says of the book, "Here is a book bursting with common sense and inspiration, written by someone who has known life in all its rich complexity... It's a book that has to be read by all those who dare to ask for more".

Chris Scott is a retired priest, psychologist, trainer and psychotherapist. Leaving school at the age of fifteen without any qualifications – and with undiagnosed dyslexia he worked in a number of occupations including shop work, window dressing, electrician, and the London Ambulance Service. In the mid-Seventies he spent four years as a Novice in the Society of Saint Francis. Ordained in 1981, he went on to study psychology, psychotherapy and Organisational Consultancy.

Light refreshments will be available from 5.30pm, and there will of course be an opportunity to purchase copies of The Jesus Myth.
