His latest book, Alive in God – A Christian Imagination, asserts that “we are most likely to excite people with our faith if Christianity is grasped as the invitation to live fully”.

She chairs the Canberra international Music Festival and has an enduring interest in building community. In 2021, she was made a Member of the Order of Australia.
