Professor Terry Eagleton Lecture – 01 December 2011

A large audience listened to Professor Terry Eagleton when he spoke on 1 December at St. Mary’s. Professor Eagleton spoke on humanity’s perception of God and offered challenging views of Jesus. He noted how we often remold God in our own image, full of our human frailty and limitations. Such a definition fails to engage and convince. We look forward to welcoming our large audience back for our next talk in 2012.
