PhD, lectures in Theology in Trinity College Dublin and was a secondary school teacher for 20 years. He is the author of over 40 books.
The Coronavirus crisis was a seismic shock to the world. It raises deep questions for theology. Does this pandemic challenge our idea of a loving God? More positively, does the crisis allow us

Recorded talks will be available from 16 October 2020. The webinar will take place on Wednesday, 11 November 2020 at 7.30pm.
