calendarView calendarallView all events

Roger Mitchell, no stranger to Leeds, is the author of numerous books including Radical Church Planting (1992), The Kingdom Factor (1986), The Sins of the Fathers (1999), Church Gospel & Empire: How the Politics of Sovereignty Impregnated the West (2011), The Fall of the Church (2013), and Discovering Kenarchy: Contemporary Resources for the Politics of Love (2014). He has also written a number of articles for political theology journals and edits the Kenarchy Journal

Day of the Labyrinth is the first of his trilogy of novels exploring key moments in European history where the gospel of life laying down love comes into tension with the political powers of the day. This, the first of the trilogy covers the period of Constantine's accession to Roman Imperial power in the early fourth century, as Christians begin to navigate their new freedom and the responsibility that comes with it. 

"Be prepared to be torn back to a time when to be a Christian was to be a rebel: against empire, against violence, against the notion of personal gain. A marked contrast with all that Christianity has become a symbol of in our times. Mitchell takes us on a journey between illuminatingly researched history and fantasy, digging into Christianity’s deep past to give radical presence to eternal social and political questions: Can love and hierarchy coincide? Can we build a new world in the shell of the old? What does the righteous path look like?" Dr. Timothy Stacey, Urban Futures Studio, Utrecht University.
