Can We Ever Really Forgive?
Regular Book Festival chairperson Stuart Kelly swaps seats to discuss his new book The Minister and the Murderer, which describes his rediscovery of faith through literature and the remarkable story of a convicted murderer's attempt to enter the ministry of the Church of Scotland. Rich with literary and theological references, Kelly's deeply personal memoir offers a fascinating history of Scottish ideas. Chaired by Richard Holloway.
