Desert Island Books: ‘Books, Religion & Ethics’

14th August 2018 @ 7:00 pm


In Desert Island Books, a panel of interesting people select one book on the main theme for the event; and a second ‘wildcard book’, being a book that they have enjoyed and would recommend to others.

The theme for this event is “Books, Religion & Ethics” and our panel comprises:

  • Kalsoom Bashir ( Muslim Chaplain, University of Bristol )
  • Dr Kieran Flanagan ( Senior Research Fellow in Sociology, University of Bristol )
  • Rev’d Dr Tim Gibson ( Senior Lecturer UWE, journalist and priest-theologian )
  • Rev’d Rachel Haig ( Community Minister, Tyndale Baptist Church, Bristol )
  • Rabbi Monique Mayer ( Rabbi of the Bristol & West Progressive Jewish Congregation )

Life can be full of ethical dilemmas.  How can our faiths and beliefs help us meet these challenges?   What lessons can be drawn from books, whether fictional tales, biographies or religious texts?

Redland Library is situated on Whiteladies Road, close to Clifton Down train station.
