ALEXANDRIA, VA – Virginia Theological Seminary’s Center for Anglican Communion Studies (CACS) is pleased to host an online book talk with Bishop Michael Curry on his new book, “Love is the Way: Holding on to Hope in Troubling Times.” The event will take place on Tuesday, November 10, 12:45-1:45 p.m. EST.  

The discussion will be hosted by Seminary Dean and President Ian Markham and award-winning journalist Ray SuarezThose interested in participating can sign up here or watch live on the CACS Facebook page or the VTS YouTube channel.   

In his new book, “Love is the Way,” Bishop Curry offers an inspirational road map for living the way of love. Through the prism of his faith, ancestry, and personal journey, Love is the Way shows us how America came this far and, more importantly, how to go a whole lot further. 

By sharing stories from his childhood as the descendent of slaves and the son of civil rights activists, through his ordination, and on to the historic changes and events that have transpired since his election as the first African-American presiding bishop and primate of the Episcopal Church, Bishop Curry illustrates why love is essential for addressing the seemingly insurmountable challenges facing the world today: poverty, racism, selfishness, deep ideological divisions, and competing claims to speak for God.
