June #ThemeOfTheMonth: Injustice

Added about a month ago by Sacristy Press

Throughout June we are going to be diving into two different approaches to the theme of injustice with the help of two of our authors as part of our #ThemeOfTheMonth. Watch the blog and our social media channels for more from these authors and their books.

Kevin Carey is one of Sacristy Press’s founding and most prolific authors. He is the Chairman of Royal National Institute of Blind People, the UK’s leading blindness charity, and a Reader in his parish church. He has been a Member of General Synod, and is a chorister, published poet, and classical music critic. 

Kevin Carey’s thorough exegesis and cutting commentary question the purpose and intent of the modern church. Examining the bible book by book, Carey demonstrates that the Church has betrayed its core message by failing to focus on the big issues of the bible and society and instead becoming myopic in its obsession with doctrinal minutiae.

Marcus Paul has two degrees in English and history and has enjoyed a life-long career working with students and sixth formers in universities and schools in three continents. He now spends his time writing and speaking about the Gospel and the Church, as well as painting and reading. He also enjoys rock climbing and travel - having had (as a young man) the now nearly impossible experience of hitch-hiking ‘on a shoestring’  ten thousand miles round Africa and the Near East.

The Evil that Men Do is a considered and thoughtful book which seeks to examine the way we look through twenty-first-century eyes at the “darker” events in Church history. In doing so, the author helps us re-examine some of our own prejudices and whilst not denying or minimalizing those things that clearly have been at times truly evil he provides a more balanced viewpoint. He seeks to engage with some of the historians, chroniclers, poets, philosophers, novelists and others who were living during those events which today are placed under a negative spotlight. In doing so we are challenged to look at the story of the Christian Church afresh and to see the Spirit of God moving through human history and through the people of God as they have sought to live, witness and share with others the love of God which they have experienced through Jesus Christ.

Bishop of Bath & Wells

“A fascinating and frank re-evaluation of the impact of the Christian faith on society, for good and ill, from the first century until the twenty-first.”
— The Revd Canon Dr Michael Green
Hon. Fellow, Wycliffe Hall, Oxford
