This December marks the release of Brian’s newest book, “Kicking at the Darkness :: Bruce Cockburn and the Christian Imagination.” We’re celebrating the launch of the book in style at Hugh’s Room in Toronto on Monday December 5th at 8.30pm
Brian will lead us beside strange waters, reading excerpts from his book. Steve Bell, Glen Soderholm, Mike Janzen and the Wine Before Breakfast Band will kick at the musical darkness till it bleeds daylight. And all the proceeds from this event will go like arrows of light to support our friends at Parkdale Neighbourhood Church.

From the Publisher:
For forty years, singer and songwriter Bruce Cockburn has been writing beautifully evocative music. Bestselling author and respected theologian Brian Walsh has followed Cockburn’s work for years and has written and spoken often on his art. In this creative theological and cultural engagement, Walsh reveals the imaginative depth and uncompromising honesty of the artist’s Christian spirituality. Cockburn offers hope in the midst of doubt, struggle, failure, and anger; indeed, the sentiment of “kicking at the darkness” is at the heart of his spirituality. This book engages the rich imagery of Cockburn’s lyrics as a catalyst for shaping and igniting a renewed Christian imagination.
