Michael Corboy will be presenting on his recently published book Between God and a Hard Place. In this seminar he will share his findings on a number of issues investigated in his book, including how Samuel Marsden came to consider Māori as potential candidates for conversion to Christianity and how he persuaded the Church Missionary Society to send missionary settlers to Aotearoa. He’ll describe the forces that worked against conversion, how the gospel spread, and the issue of syncretism.
