By Darren McDonald. Long-time Abbotsford News reporter Trudy Beyak will offer a unique look at the maternal side of religion while speaking about her new book, The Mother Heart of God, Unveiling the Mystery of the Father’s Maternal Love, at UFV on Monday, Jan. 20.
After a near-death experience, Beyak, an award-winning journalist, pursued a spiritual investigation. With pen and notebook in hand, she researched the Scriptures and interviewed more than 50 leading scholars and celebrities from North America to the Middle East, including: Dr. Raymond Damadian, inventor of the MRI machine; Ruth Graham; Ravi Zacharias; various respected Catholic scholars; Della Reese, co-star of the popular television show Touched by an Angel; and Rabbi Laura Duhan Kaplan, former U.S. professor of the year.
Compelling and informative, The Mother Heart of God reveals ground-breaking evidence from the Bible to answer the most serious spiritual questions being asked by millions of people around the globe. Is there a “disconnect” today with God’s paternal male image? Does God have both a masculine and a feminine nature? Or is God beyond gender?
Hosted by UFV Religious Studies, Beyak will share her very personal experience from 7–8:30 pm in the lecture theatre (B101) of UFV’s Abbotsford campus, 33844 King Road.
