Bishop Alastair's Lent Course 2015 - From Slavery to Salvation
This year the Diocesan Lent course will explore the issue of slavery using Jane Austen's novel 'Mansfield Park'. This book was published in 1814, the time of the last serious attempt to abolish slavery. The book raises a number of important challenges for us today, as our society looks at the rise in modern slavery and human trafficking.
The course will feature a brief introduction and five weekly sessions looking at characters and themes in the book.
