Publicity

In the weeks and months since Faith without Fear was launched, a number of articles have been published, which pick up themes developed more fully in the book.  There have also been radio and television interviews, highlighting aspects of the book, and also some of its unexpected consequences, including the non-renewal of a General Licence to preach and preside in churches within the Sydney Anglican Diocese [if you are interested, there is a time-line of that whole process, checked for accuracy by Bishop Michael Stead and Archbishop Glenn Davies, available on request]
