Author Event: Philip Gulley

25.00

Wild Geese Bookshop is excited to host America’s favorite Quaker storyteller, Philip Gulley, in the bookshop for an appearance and signing of his new book, Unlearning God: How Unbelieving Helped Me Believe.

As described by his publisher, Penguin Random House, Gulley’s new book explores the terrain of faith and doubt as shaped by family, church, and young love, finding his way to a less convenient but fully formed adult spirituality.

With his trademark humor and down-home wisdom, Gulley serves as just the spiritual director a wayward pilgrim could warm to, inviting readers into his own sometimes rollicking, sometimes daunting journey of spiritual discovery. He writes about being raised by a Catholic mother and a Baptist father across the street from a family of Jehovah’s Witnesses–all three camps convinced the others are doomed. To nearly everyone’s consternation, Philip grows up to be a Quaker and a pastor. In Unlearning God, Gulley showcases his well-loved gift as a storyteller and his acute sensibilities as a public theologian in conversations that will charm, provoke, encourage, and inspire.

Gulley is a Quaker pastor and popular author and speaker. He has written seventeen books, including the Harmony fiction series, the Porch Talk series of inspirational essays, If Grace Is True: Why God Will Save Every Person (coauthored with James Mulholland), and The Evolution of Faith: How God Is Creating a Better Christianity. Gulley holds a master of divinity degree from Christian Theological Seminary. He is co-pastor of Fairfield Friends Meeting in Camby, Indiana.

Your ticket to this event includes admission, a hardcover first edition of Unlearning God and $5.00 off any purchase in the bookshop on the day of the event.
