Supernumerary Fellow Charles Foster publishes new book on apostasy
Exeter College Supernumerary Fellow Charles Foster is a co-editor, alongside Martyn Percy, of the new collection Faiths Lost and Found: Understanding Apostasy.
Charles Foster is a member of the Law Faculty and an Associate of numerous research groups within the University. He is also a practising barrister at Gray’s Inn Square and a part-time judge of the Crown Court. Charles is a New York Times bestselling author and has written and published widely. Last spring, he released Cry of the Wild, an examination of eight “animals under siege” that reveal both the fragility and beauty of wildlife.
In Charles’s newest book, ten contributors tell their story of leaving various iterations of Christianity and their journey to finding new spiritual homes. Faiths Lost and Found examines the social, psychological, and theological facets of apostasy. The editors end the book with their own spiritual reflections.
