Book launches in Edinburgh today for Rev Thomas Davis’ new book

Rev Thomas Davis

Two events are being held in Edinburgh today (Wednesday 25th) to mark the launch of Rev Thomas Davis’ new book, God is God and You are You.

Students, staff and friends were warmly invited to a special lunchtime event at Edinburgh Theological Seminary at lunchtime today.  A second book launch event is being held tonight at St Columba’s Free Church on the Royal Mile from 8.15pm.

Thomas, who is a graduate of ETS and is now a minister at Carloway Free Church of Scotland, said: “It’s really exciting to be able to celebrate the book launch with the wider church family at ETS and St Columba’s. In many ways I feel I owe a debt to so many people who have helped me over the years. It’s wonderful to be able to meet together today.”

God is God and You are You is a book on evangelism which presents key theological truths that can help us see that the work of evangelism is not reserved for a few select experts, it is for everyone even though we might feel weak and inadequate. The aim of the book is that the theology explained in each chapter will give the reader confidence for sharing their faith, a confidence that is grounded on the key truths that God is God and you are you.

ETS principal Iver Martin said: “We are delighted to see one of our graduates publish his first book. God is God and You are You combines rich theological truth alongside the very practical realities of trying to reach out with the gospel. It is a great reminder that theology should never be kept tucked away in the classroom, it is something that every Christian needs as we seek to share the good news of Jesus.”
