Hugh Mackay - Beyond Belief

 Hugh Mackay

Hugh Mackay, one of Australia's most respected authors will be in Berry to discuss:

Beyond Belief:

How we find meaning, with or without religion.

Saturday 9 July 2 pm - 4 pm 

Tickets*: $25    ($20 concession/pensioner)

Hugh Mackay - is a social researcher and one of Australia’s most respected authors.

At a time when 61 percent of Australians still identify as Christian but only 8 percent attend church weekly, Hugh tackles one of the big questions about contemporary Australia:

"how do we find our sense of meaning & purpose when religious faith & practice are in such sharp decline? (And why are enrolments at church schools skyrocketing?)"


Hugh draws on research suggesting that our quest for a meaningful life depends on believing in something 'greater than ourselves' and explores what that 'something' might be for today's Australians.

Hugh's book "Beyond Belief" 

The topic is also the title of his just published book. You can purchase his book in-store before the event or on the day. Hugh will sign your copy.

Hugh Mackay is a social researcher and the author of seventeen books - eleven in the field of social analysis and ethics, and six novels.
