THE Friends of Kloof Library is privileged to have the former UKZN Dean of the Faculty of Humanities and Professor of Religious Studies, Reverend Professor Ron Nicholson as their speaker at the next forum on Wednesday 9 September at 6pm.

Nicholson’s talk is titled “The rise of Isis”.

Nicholson trained as an Anglican priest in England and for the first 20 years of his life he worked as a parish priest, starting at St Luke’s in Howick and later moved to Pinetown.

He then joined the University of Natal where he became a Professor of Religious Studies and also Dean of the Faculty of Humanities, before retiring briefly into parish life, again in Howick.

He now lives in retirement in Amber Valley where he delivers occasional sermons and talks, and writes occasional columns for the The Witness.

Bev Elsip of the Kloof Library said the forum looks forward to hearing Nicholson’s insight into the rise of Isis - The Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (greater Syria) - an extreme religious group that resonates globally with acts of brutality and destruction and presents an international threat to civil peace and security.

The talk will be held at the Kloof Junior Primary Hall in Abelia Road, Kloof at 6pm on Wednesday 9 September. Tickets are R50 and R30 for members of “Friends”.
