About Denis McBride

Denis McBride is a Redemptorist priest from Scotland who is now Director of Redemptorist Publications. In his post-graduate education he first studied psychology at Fordham University and then the New Testament under the great scripture scholar Raymond Brown at Union Theological Seminary, New York. After winning a scholarship to Harvard University, he returned to England to work at Hawkstone Hall, the international pastoral centre in Shropshire, England.

Since then, his principal areas of interest and writing have been the human story and the Gospels: his work has always struggled to keep open a conversation between the drama of people's lives and the four great narratives of Christian beginning. If that conversation ends, he argues Christianity will be consigned to a museum.

Before taking up his position as Director at Redemptorist Publications, Denis directed courses of study and personal renewal for priests, religious, and lay people at Hawkstone Hall. He has lectured in parish halls, colleges and universities to a variety of groups - including bishops' conferences - in North America, Africa, Asia, including the Arabian Peninsula, Australia, New Zealand, and throughout Europe. His lectures are not only informative and enlightening, but his delivery is entertaining and compelling. He has written 14 books and produced 56 CDs, each an absorbing reflection on God's saving work.
