“Witness to Change, Reflections on Reaching 100” by Lloyd Geering, Steele Roberts Aotearoa Publishers, 2018.
Lloyd’s book starts with the address he gave at the luncheon to celebrate his 100th birthday and then proceeds to narrate the many changes he has witnessed during his lifetime.
This is followed by a collection of addresses and sermons in which he discusses the changes that took place in Christian thought and practice during the 20th century, as a result of which his own thinking also underwent a radical change. It concludes with a sketch of the life of 'God' from conception to death.
Copies available from the SATRS book stall, cost $25.00.
