Film Screening: For the Love of God
This event has now ended. Please view this page to see all our upcoming events.
Join us for a screening of a new documentary film from the Centre for Public Christianity, For the Love of God: How the Church is Better and Worse than You Ever Imagined. The screening will be followed by a talk-back session with presenter Simon Smart.
Christian history is full of violence, corruption, and oppression. So would we be better off without Christianity? Does religion poison everything? The history of the church offers plenty of ammunition to its critics. Crusades, inquisitions, witch hunts, the oppression of women... For the Love of God: How the Church is Better and Worse than You Ever Imagined, a documentary by the Centre for Public Christianity, confronts the worst of what Christians have done—and also traces the origins of Western values like human rights, charity, humility, and non-violence back to the influence of Jesus.
