Special Event

Adam Hamilton Book Discussion

Monday, March 12, 2018 | 7:00pm

The Cathedral is thrilled to announce that Adam Hamilton will present his new book, UNAFRAID: Living with Courage and Hope in Uncertain Times. 

Tickets are required to attend this talk, Q&A, and book signing. One ticket includes a hardcover copy of UNAFRAID. Books will be available for pickup upon entry at the venue.

Drawing on fresh research, psychology, biblical principles, and his long experience shepherding a diverse faith community in Red State America, Hamilton helps readers untangle the knots of fear and truly embrace Jesus’s recurring counsel: “Do not be afraid.” He writes with generosity and intelligence for a wide audience in accessible language that will ring true to believer and unbeliever alike.

The event will showcase and give a general understanding of Hamilton's book, which shows how people and communities can flourish as beacons of hope and serenity in an anxious age. It is hoped that individuals who attend the event will learn something new or become enlightened in some way.

ADAM HAMILTON, a leading voice for reconciliation and church renewal in mainstream Christianity, is senior pastor of 20,000-member Church of the Resurrection, Kansas City, the largest and most influential United Methodist congregation in the U.S. He is the author of 23 books; his most recent trade release is, Making Sense of the Bible. In January 2016, he was named to President Obama’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships.

Truth is, a mere handful of fears work for us--fear of stepping in front of a bus, for example, or not taking care of our health. But the vast majority--fear of others, of failure, of the future--have almost no basis in reality, yet tie us in knots and steal our peace of mind. These fears, experts say, are often vestiges of primitive 'fight, flight, or freeze' instincts that, mostly, no longer apply. Making matters worse, our hyper fractious era of hate media, divisive politics, and multiplying natural disasters wreak havoc on our state of mind, leaving us troubled and unhappy.

Fortunately there's abundant good news. As trusted pastor and bestselling author Adam Hamilton shows in Unafraid, we can escape the echo chamber of anxiety and dread. With insight, intention and faith, we can learn to overcome what oppresses us, and live with courage and hope.

For anyone struggling with fear, worry, or anxiety--or who wonders how families and communities can live as peacemakers in troubled times—Unafraid offers an informed and inspiring message full of practical solutions.
