Life Beyond Belief

Bob Ripley life beyond belief

Life Beyond Belief: A Preacher's Deconversion

In September 2014 Bob Ripley, a long time ordained minister in the United Church of Canada, shared with the readers of his newspaper column that he had, over many years, come to the conclusion that "religion, all religion, is man-made." This was a powerful and heart felt statement which took a lot of courage to be made in a public forum. 

Ripley states that he now places his value in authenticity and encourages all of us to appreciate the importance of critical thinking and to support "intellectual honesty without fear of rejection or reprisal."

Written with warmth and sincerity this is a book for both committed believers and non-believers and there is food for thought for both groups.

Join us on November 12 for an informative, sensitive and thought provoking talk by Bob Ripley at the Wolf Performance Hall from 7-9 pm.

Ripley's recently published book "Life Beyond Belief: A Preacher's Deconversion" will be available for purchase and signing by the author after the presentation.
