Invitation: Michael Sadgrove Book Launch

Added about 5 years ago by Sacristy Press

Michael Sadgrove, Dean of Durham, invites you to join him for the launch of his latest book, Christ in a Choppie Box, at Durham Cathedral.

Tuesday 22 September at 6.30pm – Durham Cathedral Shop and Undercroft Foyer

You are warmly invited to attend the book launch of Christ in a Choppie Box, a collection of sermons by the Dean of Durham, Michael Sadgrove, to mark his retirement in September 2015. The sermons have been edited and introduced by Carol Harrison, and the foreword is by Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury.

Michael Sadgrove has been Dean of Durham since 2003. During his time as Dean he has preached many well-crafted sermons on a wide variety of topics, from the Iraq invasions to “digital lambs”. This volume, published by Sacristy Press, contains an edited collection of some of his finest and most thought-provoking sermons from his time in Durham.

Refreshments will be served in the Undercroft Foyer and signed copies of the book will be available on the evening.

RSVP Please contact Durham Cathedral on 0191 386 8669 or events@durhamcathedral.co.uk to confirm attendance. 

Michael’s sermons are both beautiful and inspiring. They draw the reader face to face with God in surprising ways, always feeding the spiritual appetite—yet leaving me thirsty for more of what we have just tasted. They are beautifully crafted, and admirably concise. The use of English is impeccable and the scholarship profound. The eclectic references to art and literature demonstrate an aesthetic talent and theological versatility that is exceptional.

from the Foreword by Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury
