Who are we?
PETER ROLLINS is a provocative writer, philosopher, storyteller and public speaker who has gained an international reputation for overturning traditional notions of religion and creating communities that embrace doubt, difficulty and ambiguity. Challenging the idea that faith concerns questions relating to belief, Peter’s incendiary and irreligious reading of Christianity challenges the distinction between sacred and secular, blurs the lines between theism and atheism and moves beyond questions regarding life after death to explore the possibility of a life before death.
Peter gained his higher education from Queens University, Belfast and has earned degrees with distinction in Scholastic Philosophy (BA Hons), Political Theory (MA) and Post-Structural thought (PhD). He is the author of numerous books, including Insurrection, The Idolatry of God, and The Divine Magician. He was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, currently lives in Los Angeles and will die somewhere as yet not known.
The Lectures “Vanishing Act of God: The Loss of Religion and Rediscovery of Faith” are Friday March 11, 2016 at 7:00 pm, Saturday March 12, 2016 at 9:00 am, 11:00 am and 1:30 pm.
