Please join us in the Regent College Chapel on Wednesday, September 20, for the launch of Cuckoos in Our Nest: Truth and Lies About Being Human, the latest book by Dr. Iain Provan, retired Marshall Shephard Professor of Biblical Studies at Regent College and founder of the Cuckoos Consultancy.

About the Book

Throughout the history of the Christian church, there have been moments of significant theological crisis, and we are currently in the midst of another. But our pressing question is not “Who is Jesus?” (as it was in the fourth century) nor “How can we be saved?” (as it was in the sixteenth). It is now “What is a human being?” In many communities that claim the name “Christian,” even people who can provide correct answers to the first two questions are currently confused when it comes to the third. This book is intended to help all such readers understand how they should, as faithful Christians, respond to this crucially important question, and how they should live as a result.

About the Author

Iain was born and educated in the U.K. and completed his final degree (PhD) at the University of Cambridge in 1987. Iain is a retired soccer coach and an avid fly fisherman.
