Charles Inouye, End of the World, Panel and Book Release

Join us Saturday evening, February 27th, at 6:00 pm, for a panel discussion and book-signing with Charles Shiro Inouye, author of The End of the World, Plan B: A Guide for the Future.  A fascinating new title from Greg Kofford Books, End of the World traces the idea of the end, or destruction, of the world through a number of spiritual traditions, not limited to Mormonism. It shows that our present understanding of the “end game” has been distorted by a modern emphasis and demand on justice as the ultimate good. As an alternative to this self-destructive approach, Charles Shirō Inouye shows that in these traditions, justice is not the isolated end in itself that we ought strive for; rather it is taught in tandem with its balancing companion: compassion. LDS theologian and philosopher Adam Miller has written that "Mormonism needs Inouye's voice," to remind us that "justice is not enough and that obedience is not the currency of salvation." Inouye will be joined by Charles Randall Paul and James McLachlan to discuss his book, after which there will be an audience Q&A and an opportunity to chat with and get a signature from the author. The event is free and open to the public, and light refreshments will be served.
