CONVERSATIONS IN DEPTH with Kate Bowler

benefiting The Jung Center 

 

Joyfully Mediocre

Author and Duke Divinity School Associate Professor Kate Bowler helps us find hope without cheap optimism, and joy in the absence of certainty.

In a culture where we’re told that with enough faith – and clean eating and hard work and unfailing gratitude – we can out-perform our humanness, Kate ditches perfect and explores life after things fall apart.

KATE BOWLER

Kate Bowler, PhD, is a bestselling author, podcast host, and professor at Duke Divinity School. In her twenties, Kate became obsessed with writing the first history of the “prosperity gospel,” which promises God will reward you with health and wealth if you have the right kind of faith. As a young mother at age 35, Kate was diagnosed with Stage IV cancer, causing her to think differently about the beliefs she had been studying.

Kate is the author of the New York Times bestselling memoir Everything Happens for a Reason (and Other Lies I’ve Loved), No Cure for Being Human (and Other Truths I Need to Hear), and Good Enough: 40ish Devotionals for a Life of Imperfection. Her first book Blessed: A History of the American Prosperity Gospel received widespread media attention and a lot of puns about being #blessed.

In her podcast “Everything Happens for a reason,” Kate interviews insightful thinkers including: Katie Couric on courage, limits, and losses; David Brooks on the limits of stoicism and defining hope without optimism; Stanley Tucci on simple pleasures; and Anthony Ray Hinton (The Jung Center’s 2020 Fall Benefit speaker) on love, race, and justice.
