The Regulator welcomes Kate Bowler, author of «Everything Happens for a Reason: And Other Lies I’ve Loved» for a reading and signing.

Kate Bowler is a professor at Duke Divinity School with a modest Christian upbringing, but she specializes in the study of the prosperity gospel, a creed that sees fortune as a blessing from God and misfortune as a mark of God’s disapproval. At thirty-five, everything in her life seems to point toward “blessing.” She is thriving in her job, married to her high school sweetheart, and loves life with her newborn son.

Then she is diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer. What does it mean to die, she wonders, in a society that insists everything happens for a reason? Kate is stripped of this certainty only to discover that without it, life is hard but beautiful in a way it never has been before. «Everything Happens for a Reason» tells her story, offering up her irreverent, hard-won observations on dying and the ways it has taught her to live.

KATE BOWLER is an assistant professor at Duke Divinity School. A graduate of Yale Divinity School and Duke University, Bowler is the author of «Blessed: A History of the American Prosperity Gospel.» She lives in North Carolina with her husband and son.
